About the property

Cottage in Grewelthorpe, near Masham on edge of Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire, England - Peaceful Location, short walk to Hackfall Woods Close to Ripon

Our lovely self catering cottage has been converted from period stables and is situated on the outskirts of Grewelthorpe which is in the Nidderdale “area of outstanding natural beauty”. With easy access to the many attractions that the area offers, we think this is the perfect place for a relaxing break. We have worked hard to make our cottage a super comfortable home from home, with high quality furnishings and attractive textiles to compliment the building. For heating and hot water we have installed a biomass boiler that ensures you can be toasty warm in the cold months with under floor heating whilst still being eco friendly. The water supply comes from our own well and doesn't contain any extra chemicals.

Excellent cottage 5 star 🎇

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was excellent, one of the best we stayed in. Everything was on hand and was 5 star, as well as the very welcoming yummy cake, fizz and fresh laid eggs!

Will be back again.

My husband and I stayed here with my elderly Mum. The cottage is the best one we have ever stayed in bar none. The design and standard of finish was excellent and it was a very relaxing place to stay. The location is great and you can reach a lot of beautiful places very easily. We were welcomed by Geoff, who was very friendly and helpful, and although we didn't get to meet Val during our stay we can vouch for her excellent cake-making skills! All the extras like the eggs, milk and wine were also much appreciated it. We would definitely recommend The Stables to anyone.

This property was outstanding. Exceptionally high quality furnishings and kitchenware. Bathrooms felt luxurious and bedrooms spacious yet cosy. We had a genuinely fabulous stay. Could not fault anything.

A real gem

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. It is finished to a very high standard, has everything you could want and felt cosy and spacious at the same time! The bed was a delight to sleep on. Geoff made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble and Val's Victoria sponge was delicious. We appreciated the tea / coffee and milk in the fridge when we arrived. The nearest supermarket is 5 miles away in Ripon.

Road access was straightforward and its rural location meant there was no road noise and the stars looked beautiful at night. We were very sorry to leave.

Paul & Ruth.
