This cosy two bed traditional stone cottage with log burner has bags of character and is an ideal base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Thorpe Cottage is situated in the Wensleydale market town of Masham and provides easy access to some of Yorkshire’s great towns and cities, such as York and Harrogate, as well as the coastal gems of Whitby and Runswick Bay.

Thorpe Cottage has been  restored to a high standard and combines traditional features, such as beams and open fireplaces, with all the comforts of home such as a dishwasher, washer/dryer and whirlpool bath.

It is well located just a few minutes from Masham’s bustling market square, which plays host to weekly markets, some speciality markets and of course the popular annual Sheep Fair every September. Masham is a thriving local community with a host of interesting and unusual shops, cafes and a choice of pubs and restaurants.

There are plenty of walks straight from the door to suit all ages and abilities with some of our favourites listed below. In addition to day and half day walks why not complete sections of the popular Ripon Rowel Walk or the nearby Nidderdale Way which passes over moors and down spectacular valleys.

For non walking days there is a choice of golf courses, tennis courts, riding, canoeing and fishing whilst Masham is of course famous for its two breweries, Theakstons and Black Sheep, both of which offer tours and tasting sessions.
