Barn Owl Cottage is a comfortable and cosy holiday home with an open fire and ceiling beams in the bright open plan lounge, dining, and kitchen area. The cottage is set in a peaceful location close to the market square in Masham, and is fully equipped, with a warm cosy fire to settle down and relax in front of after a day out in the Dales. Masham is a thriving community with a market on Wednesdays and Saturdays, where you can mix with the locals as you buy fresh veg and local produce. There are craft shops, galleries, tearooms, restaurants, and several pubs serving good food - in fact, most needs are catered for locally. You can also sample some superb real ales at each of the two breweries in the village, both having restaurants.

Masham (pronounced as Mass’em) has plenty to offer its visitors, located in the stunning countryside of Lower Wensleydale, it provides the perfect base to explore the rest of the Yorkshire Dales and Moors. The popular market towns of Ripon, Harrogate, Thirsk, Skipton, York, Leeds and Richmond with all their attractions are only 20-60 minutes’ drive away. The buzz of Hull City of Culture, the magic of Durham or the excitement of the Lake District are all within 90 minutes’ drive.
