About Ron Taylor-Walker

Owned by the Directors of Home Estate Agents, Warrington Cheshire. Avenue Cottage was a labour of love taking nearly a year to reform and is a property we are very proud of. Join us and make this your Home from Home......

Ron Taylor-Walker purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Ron Taylor-Walker chose Yorkshire Dales

Masham which is pronounced MAS HAM is a beautiful village and only takes minutes to walk to from the cottage. It has a lovely square. 4 Great Pubs. 2 Breweries and Restaurants. Come and see for yourself and like us, you will fall in love with the area.

Walkers, there are several walks that run along the River Ure. The cottage is the last house leaving the village so the walks are from the doorstep. Cyclists, the Tour de France passed by the cottage in 2014 so you can ride the same route yourself.

What makes this cottage unique

Great location. Beautiful walks. Wonderful village. Easy to explore the Yorkshire Dales. Short drive to Ripon, Harrogate and all the region has to offer.

Wonderful cottage, we have been very happy here and the little touches made it more enjoyable. The Wyatt's.

What a lovely, lovely cottage. The website photos does not do it justice. My Parent's enjoyed especially the orangery. The Coaton's & Fell's.

Would definately recommend this cottage. We especially loved the remote controlled radios in the bathroom ceilings. The MacKenzie Family.

The cottage is beautiful and was perfect for our needs. The best in Masham. B Burnham.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Avenue Cottage (5 adults).

It's in a perfect location to walk into the village for the shops, pubs, restaurants and the two breweries and there are plenty of walks to do from the door. We particularly liked being able to watch the sheep in the field next door, from the cottage and the garden.

The Cottage had everything we required and more, the remote controlled radios in the bathrooms are a great idea and the orangery was lovely to sit in at any time of day, very relaxing.

Booking was easy and correspondence from the owner, Ron, was great, thank you.

Lovely Cottage in beautiful Masham

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week here and it was a very nice place to stay. It is the first building on the road as you come over the bridge. Baths are new and well appointed, the unit is very modern and the kitchen has everything you need. Ron's people had it clean and ready, it was a nice place to base from.

The unit is on the main road and you have to be careful of traffic, but it was not a problem getting in & out. Use the turn out on the east side of the unit if you are unsure of the driveway. There is also some road noise if youre in the front bedroom at night, but the windows are new and it was tolerable.

All in all this was a great place to stay and we would absolutely stay here again.
