Description of Thorpe Cottage

Thorpe Cottage is a charming stone built cottage which has been restored to a high standard yet still retains many of its original features such as open fireplaces and wooden beams. The cottage is a real home from home and is equipped with everything you need for a perfect stay. After a hard day's hiking in the Dales or an equally enjoyable potter around the many speciality shops Masham has to offer, you can unwind in the whirlpool bath or relax infront of the glowing log fire. A restful night's sleep is also guaranteed on the plump mattresses, which are handmade locally in the Dales. And if you decide you don't want to eat out at one of the numerous eateries that Masham is home to, the kitchen is fully equipped with halogen hob, dishwasher and washer/dryer. In the lounge guests will find a colour TV, DVD player, stereo radio/CD player in addition to a selection of games and books to keep you entertained as well as local guidebooks and maps to plan your adventures! The cottage is centrally heated throughout and also benefits from underfloor heating. Thorpe Cottage has been awarded a four star VisitBritain Quality in Tourism Rating and is a member of the Families Welcome scheme. Masham is a thriving community and has a host of interesting shops to browse around as well as a number of cafes, great pubs and several restaurants. It is also home to two breweries, Theakstons and Black Sheep, which visitors can look around and sample their award winning ales. Masham is well placed for touring the local area and is known as The Gateway to the Dales. There are some great walks on your doorstep and several nature reserves to discover. The historic city of York and spa town of Harrogate are all within easy reach by car. There are also a host of tourist attractions nearby to suit all ages and interests including The Forbidden Corner at Leyburn, Lightwater Valley Theme Park, the restored Wensleydale Railway, Fountains Abbey and Newby Hall and Gardens. Masham is also well placed to enjoy a number of sporting activities. There is a 9 hole golf course just 5 minutes walk away from the cottage. Tennis, horse-riding, fishing, canoeing and claypigeon-shooting are also nearby. Thorpe Cottage has no smoking policy. Apologies to dog owners but we also have a no pet policy.
