Yorkshire Retreat is based in Masham – primarily at Morton House and The Stable Block, a grade II listed stone farmhouse just off the market square in the picturesque market town of Masham. All accommodation can be rented separately or for larger groups together and all is within easy walking distance of all amenities, pubs, shops and of course Masham’s famous breweries – The Black Sheep and Theakstons. The town of Masham is superbly placed for walking and visiting local attractions – and just an hour from Harrogate, York and Leeds with excellent connections to the larger cities of Yorkshire and beyond. A market has been held on Masham’s town square (reportedly the largest in Yorkshire) 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, Saturday and public holidays, and there are plenty of welcoming pubs and delightful tearooms. gallery.
