My girlfriend and I celebrated our engagement with two nights at Cowscot House. We were very impressed by the warm welcome we got from our hosts Liz and Mike, the delicious breakfasts, the comfortable room and beautiful garden. We had a lovely time exploring the local area, particularly enjoying the idyllic town of Masham, the unusual Himalayan Gardens at Grewelthorpe... More

We stayed for two nights in August whilst attending a friends nearby party. Having travelled from London we arrived very late and were delighted to be met by Liz and Mike despite the ungodly hour. The room was delightful and utterly, utterly spotless. Bed very comfy and surroundings and decor subtle and restful. Breakfast was delicious with full english, fruit,... More

Our stay of 2 nights was thoroughly enjoyable. The room was lovely, spacious and quiet. We were able to sit in the peaceful garden and enjoy the sun whilst eating homemade cakes and biscuits. The choice at breakfast was great with homemade yoghurt, bread, fruit compotes and jams followed by a full cooked breakfast and many other options were available... More

I have stayed at this B&B on my own; with my Mother and with my 6yr old son. Each time the property is spotless; the bathrooms make mine at home look like a municipal tip; breakfast is fabulous laid out on starched linen tablecloths and all is peace and quiet. Mike and Liz work very hard to make sure everything... More
