Area Information

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. But there’s plenty to keep the visitor occupied in Masham town itself with two breweries, tea rooms and Dales pubs all serving hearty meals, it is a great place to holiday.
