Welcome to Morton House a True Yorkshire Retreat in Masham...
Morton House is a grade II listed stone farmhouse just off the market square in the picturesque market town of Masham. The accommodation is within easy walking distance of all amenities, pubs, shops and of course Masham’s famous breweries – The Black Sheep and Theakstons.
Morton House has been totally renovated retaining much of the charm and features you would expect including exposed beams, open fireplace, fantastic loft master suite and farmhouse style kitchen/diner. The rear (shared) garden is fully fenced, private and sunny (when the sun shines!) There is parking at the door on the street. The house is centrally heated throughout and available all year.
The property has 4brms - the very large master suite in the loft with a king size bed and additional single day bed has an ensuite bathroom. On the first floor at the front of the property there is a superking 'Gold' bedroom and a double bedroom which share the house bathroom. At the rear on this level is the twin bedroom with an ensuite shower room. All bedrooms have comfy mattresses and cosy cotton bed linens and pillows/duvet (no feather pillows).
On the ground floor there are two sitting rooms to the front of the property - the more formal 'Green' room with Chesterfield sofas and open fire place, and the cosy TV room with wood burning stove and comfy sofas. There is a large flat screen TV with SKY movies and sports and a games console. Also a games box with board games and books.
At the rear of the property move through the lobby to the large farmhouse style kitchen and dining area which has a door out to the shared courtyard garden. You will find the kitchen fully kitted with utensils to cook up a storm and all the usual gadgets - large range style cooker and double oven, dishwasher, microwave, under bench larder fridges etc. There is an American style fridge/freezer in the shared utility area along with a downstairs loo, washing machine and tumble dryer.
The town of Masham is superbly placed for walking and visiting local attractions. A market has been held here since 1393 when a charter was granted by Richard II and the town subsequently thrived due to the easy access of the flocks from nearby Fountains and Jervaulx Abbeys. It still hosts a market every Wednesday and Saturday, and there are plenty of welcoming pubs and delightful tearooms.
Morton House can be rented on its own or in conjunction with ‘The Stable Block’, therefore able to sleep up to 16 persons in 7 bedrooms.
