Town: The historic market town of Masham is situated in Wensleydale alongside the River Ure surrounded by gently rolling countryside. The town has a huge market place and was the site for annual sheep fairs with some of the animals coming from the Abbeys of Jervaulx and Fountains. The tradition still continues today in September but on a much smaller scale. The town has a good range of shops, restaurants and pubs and there is a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are many walks in the area including a 10-mile walk along the River Ure which is perhaps one of the best walks in the UK. With so much to see and do, this is a fabulous place for a holiday whatever the time of year.

Overall we liked the cottage,great position-quiet,but within easy reach of every amenity.Masham is a great,little town.The cottage itself just could do with a little T.L.C,a lick of paint and the carpets upstairs,cleaned.(or maybe floorboards throughout.)Also,the cottage is described as having a garden,when in reality,it is just an enclosed,concrete,yard.Luckily,this wasn't a problem for our dog as lovely,riverside/country walks are a couple of minutes away.
We were lucky with the" Great British Weather" and had a glorious week.We were also lucky enough to catch the annual Muker, agricultural show in beautiful Swaledale-the highlight of our holiday,a great day out.We would return as we loved the town and surrounding area.nothing nicer on a hot,sunny,day than sipping beer in the "Bull Inn In Paradise"!

Dairy cottage in Masham is a very nicely presented cottage and very comfortable. Masham is a particularly friendly place.
While we were ther we visited York, found a lovely kennels that took the dog for the day, and Harrogate, Betty's tea rooms should not be missed.

Cottage was very clean, well equipped and welcoming. Facilities were excellent (including free broadband) with a large, well equipped kitchen and cosy, comfortable living room. Tucked away from the road into Masham the cottage is conveniently placed for town amenities and access to the surrounding area of Wensleydale - which is stunning. A pet friendly home from home which we hope to re-visit. Would definitely recommend.
brilliant and spacious cottage

This was our 2nd stay at the cottage, there were 4 adults and 1 child, but there is plenty of room. It's very handy for the village and the Bay Horse pub, which is brilliant. Also easy to get to York, Ripon and Harrogate.
Unable to take up booking

We had booked a holiday week commencing 4 April 2009 at this lovely cottage but, unfortunately, due to my Mothers' death on that day we were unable to go.
However, we fully intend to return to Dairy Cottage sometime in 2010 as we have always enjoyed our holidays in Masham
