About the property

Cottage in Fearby, Nr. Masham, Wensleydale, Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire, England - Dog friendly property with gardens and walks from the front door

Located in the unspoilt village of Fearby, near Masham, with its wide village greens and within the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Bramblewick is everyone's idea of a traditional stone-built cottage.

Ideally situated for touring North Yorkshire by car, cycle or on foot, or simply relaxing in beautiful countryside. Local attractions include fishing, golf, clay pigeon shooting, pony trekking and tennis.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Such a charming little cottage, in a beautiful setting, which has been very nicely furnished throughout. We have really enjoyed our stay in Bramblewick Cottage and felt so comfortable and at home here.



Irene, Ian & Kim W, Darlington



We had a wonderful week, thank you. The cottage is delightful, and was equipped with everything we needed. Of course we had glorious weather, so did as much walking as possible.



Diana H, Wimbledon, London



We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to our friends & family whenever they want a wonderful holiday in a beautiful part of Yorkshire.

Charming cottage in beautiful part of the country

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, very well-maintained and stocked with everything you need for your stay- a real home from home. Comfortable and clean. Lovely shower in the ensuite (and another downstairs). Well-kept garden which gets the sun for most of the day and looks out onto fields enabling bird-watching and rabbit-watching! Lots of information in the cottage about the area and things to do, including OS maps and guide books. The owners, Alison & David, are very helpful and obviously concerned that you enjoy your stay.

Lots to do in the area within a short distance including walking, visiting ruined abbeys and gardens and picturesque villages. The Black Swan is an excellent pub just up the road serving very good food - we ate there 5 times within 1 week!

Would definitely recommend this cottage to friends, in fact we're considering another visit in autumn if it's available.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is immaculately clean, has lovely decor, all the mod cons you could possibly want, and is in a beautiful area. We enjoyed our stay very much. There were 4 adults in our group and we were very comfortable and not crowded at all. The hosts were very good to work with and we appreciated that they called and enquired after us right after we arrived. The en-suite shower wasn't working during our stay, and they explained and apologized and offered us a discount on subsequent rentals. I definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in a quiet little village in a lovely area.

(One little note to travelers from the States - they don't accept credit cards and you will have to do a bank transfer. That was something I was unfamiliar with and felt a little nervous doing, but it worked out well.)

Lovely cottage on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and clean 2 bedroom cottage near Masham, North Yorkshire. Lots to do in the area and ideal location to explore York, Ripon, local steam railways and markets nearby. Lots of walks and good pubs with fine food and locally brewed ale to sample. Our cocker spaniel had a great time in this pet friendly cottage. Owners very helpful and welcome pack much appreciated. Great value and highly recommend for those looking to explore this area.

Lovely cottage, ideally situated & well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely 2 bedroomed, 2 bathroom, well equipped cottage set in a beautiful, peaceful village did not seem crowded even with four large adults and medium sized dog! It was spotless on arrival and great thought had obviously gone into providing everything you might need for your stay. It was ideally situated for visiting the many attractions North Yorkshire has to offer. The weather threw everything it had at us but the snow actually added to our enjoyment. We would recommend the Wensleydale Creamery at Hawes, the Black Sheep Brewery at Masham, Thorp Perrow Arboretum and Bolton Castle but most of all the wonderful Wensleydale scenery. The Bruce Arms in Masham was very dog friendly and Vennells was excellent for a special occasion. We would certainly recommend Bramblewick Cottage to friends and relatives.

Lovely Return Visit

  • 5 of 5

A lovely third stay at what we now consider to be our ' home from home' with Poppi our Labrador. We didn't venture out much as this was a chill out week and the weather was foggy, so we spent much of the week snuggled up in front of the log burner... As ever, a much enjoyed welcome pack was waiting for us in the well equipped kitchen diner, and the cottage was clean and tidy on our arrival. The owners Alison and David do everything possible to make your stay a welcome one. Thoroughly recommend Bramblewick Cottage as an excellent holiday cottage, with plenty to see and do in the area and a Brymor ice cream is a must whatever the time of year!

Owner's Response: The cottage is ideally suited for that "chill out" in the country - although the cosy log-burner ensures that the stay is anything but chilly! We do value the personal contact we have with our guests (all enquiries are responded to with a telephone call rather than just an email), and is one of the reasons we no longer use an agency to help market the property. Indeed many of our guests have become "regulars" who come back time and time again.

The village pub is only yards from the cottage, and serves locally-brewed real ales and delicious home cooked meals. The delightful market town of Masham is a mere mile and a half away, and can easily be reached on local footpaths. As well as boasting two breweries, both with visitor centres, and many local shops, Masham hosts an annual Steam Rally in July, and a Sheep Fair in September.
