Avenue Cottage, to sleep 6 plus 1 small dog, an original stone built cottage in Masham, has been renovated and extended in a modern style, sits detached from its neighbours and is the last house in The Avenue with walks from the doorstep to open countryside. Sitting on one of the main routes into Masham, the houses line one side of The Avenue overlooking the River Ure.

To the side of the cottage is a gated driveway and low walled garden with views to the parkland and river. Entry from the driveway is to a hallway which leads to a large open plan kitchen and dining room with tiled floor and French windows opening to the garden. Through the kitchen is a short hallway which opens to the small orangery with lofted glass roof and large French windows at both sides opening to the garden and rear patio respectively. Between the kitchen and orangery is a washroom with toilet and washbasin. 

The front hallway also gives access to a spacious lounge with an oak stairway with glass balustrade rising to the landing. This serves two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room with washbasin and toilet, two single bedrooms and a fully tiled bathroom with bath, shower cabinet, washbasin and toilet. 

To the rear of the cottage is a patio garden which can be reached around the side of the house or through the orangery.  A pleasant little suntrap to enjoy those long summer days.

The cottage has been stylishly designed and meticulously converted to the modern world with some traditional features still remaining. A contemporary and progressive cottage that offers a very high standard of accommodation.

Price £507 – £843 per week.                                     


In the last reaches of the Pennines the river Ure twists and turns with the undulating landscape. The river is now so wide that bridging is difficult and sites of crossings are route centres, around which important local settlements were founded. One such settlement is the small market town of Masham, a ‘Gateway to The Dales’. An ancient market town since 1393 with one of the largest market places in the north of England, now faced by stylish Georgian buildings which surround the central market cross.

The once famed annual sheep sales still continues to this day during September, on a much smaller scale, as does one of the North’s largest steam rallies in July. Now most famous for Theakston’s and Black Sheep breweries, both owned by the Theakston family who first started brewing in 1827 and warmly welcome visitors to watch them ply their crafts and sample the rewards of their labour.

The town is embraced by the river and surrounding slopes and sits picturesquely with the tall spire of Saint Mary’s church visible from miles around. Pretty riverside walks with parkland and playing fields on the doorstep, the nearby stately grounds of Swinton Castle with its delicious restaurant and the not so distant attractions of Ripon, Harrogate and York offer enjoyment for all.
