Enjoying a truly peaceful rural setting on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this comfortably furnished lodge shares a small, private woodland site, close to the River Ure in Wensleydale, with only two other similar properties. Within 3 miles lies the small market town of Masham with a quaint cobbled square, which plays host to weekly markets, speciality markets and the Annual Sheep Fair every September. Masham boasts a good choice of inns, excellent restaurants, traditional shops and famous breweries. There is wonderful walking directly from the site into the beautiful Wensleydale scenery with its medieval abbeys, castles and waterfalls. Lightwater Valley Theme Park, Forbidden Corner (a garden of surprises), Leyburn, Fountains Abbey, and Ripon, with its dominating cathedral are all within 10 miles. The elegant spa town of Harrogate is 20 miles and the historic city of York is 35 miles. Golf, cycle hire, riding, fishing and sailing 3 miles. Shops 3 miles, pub 1.5 miles.
