Completely refurbished to a very high standard Brewer's Den is a truly delightful apartment found in one of the wider sections of College Lane close to Silver Street in Masham. A two storey stone terrace which has been converted into apartments with the ground floor apartment known as Brewers Den, so called because it was here that the Theakston's Brewery first stored their casks of ale in the vaulted cellars beneath.
Entry to the apartment is to a hallway with a natural slate floor which serves all the rooms. Immediately off to the right is a bedroom with a double bed which overlooks College Lane. On the far right of the hallway is an open plan room with a traditional pine boarded floor reaching throughout the well fitted kitchen, dining area and lounge. At the end of the hallway is a fully tiled bathroom with a bath and associated sprinkler shower, washbasin and toilet.
The apartment is modern in its decor and tastefully furnished with a mix of modern and traditional. The lounge and kitchen areas are themed with brewing and distilling memorabilia including a barrel table and stools made from staves.
A super hideaway just for two near to all Masham has to offer.
Price £274 - £428
In the last reaches of the Pennines the river Ure twists and turns with the undulating landscape. The river is now so full and 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, where over 80,000 head would be sold in just three days still continues to this day during September, albeit on a much smaller scale, as does one of the North's largest steam rallies in July. Now most famous for the 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, the fun-park at Lightwater Valley and the not so distant attractions of Ripon, Harrogate and York offer enjoyment and excitement for all.
