Masham, North Yorkshire

A charming market town, Masham is the essence of rural North Yorkshire with plenty of picture-perfect Georgian buildings surrounding a cobbled market square. The town provides a host of great places to eat, local shops, a popular wine shop, and great local butchers for guests staying in the nearby Masham holiday cottages. The wider area is surrounded by historical landmarks, rivers, woodland walks and picturesque countryside to explore…

Masham is known as a town for foodies, and many visitors plan their trip around the fine dining restaurants and pubs, paired with a local tipple or two at the town’s award-winning breweries Theakston and Black Sheep. Visit the famous Masham Sheep Fair held in September and the annual sheep sale where as many as 70,000 sheep are sold every year.

Eat and Drink

Of course, Masham is the home of Yorkshire brewing, with its two award-winning breweries: Theakston’s and Black Sheep. Take a brewery tour, sample their ales and enjoy some good food at either of the breweries and make sure you pick up a bottle to take home as well (call it a souvenir)

Vennells restaurant, The Bruce Arms, and The White Bear which adjoins the brewery are all good options for something to eat. In the daytime seating with coffee and cake at Johnny Baghdad’s Cafe on the Square is a must.

Masham’s market takes place every 1st Sunday of the month from April to October offering a fantastic range of Yorkshire stallholders who are all extremely knowledgeable and passionate about their produce offering farmhouse baking, bread, cured meats, organic veg, hand-made fudge, plants, handmade walking sticks, soaps, honey, cheese, herbs and lots more. Come and eat seasonally inspired dishes sold by inventive ‘kitchens’.

Explore

After an evening sampling Yorkshires finest ales, why not dust off the cobwebs the next day and explore the intriguing landscape beyond, with Hackfall Woods nearby, full of curiosities and follies with hidden structures that have been scattered throughout or the mystical stones of the Druids Temple, one of Yorkshires quirkiest 19th century follies tucked in to the woods by the nearby village of Ilton.

There are plenty of walking and cycling trails alongside the most tranquil picnic spots, with stunning views over the Leighton reservoir, surrounding moorland and the Yorkshire Dales landscape. The kids will enjoy a days adventure in the woods, followed by a treat at Brymor Ice cream, while the adults may prefer a spot of grandeur at the nearby Swinton Estate, where you can relax and enjoy an award winning afternoon tea, a wellness massage or learn to cook at their cookery school.
