Staying in this gorgeous B&B was a wonderful experience. We stayed in room 6 and had the best nights sleep ever, even better than home! We had read on previous reviews that the breakfasts would be good and we were not disappointed. Locally sourced produce, cooked to our specifications and plenty of it. The hosts were friendly and chatty and... More

We had a lovely weekend away in North Yorkshire. Masham is lovely, full of charm, fantastic pubs and of course the Black Sheep Brewery. Bank villa is in the heart of Masham and it's glory of pubs. Our room was clean and had nice finishing touches in there. If you are 5.8 or above I would mention this at the... More

Stayed in room 6 for 2nights. The owners are so accommodating and friendly. They own a beautiful home which they choose to share. From arrival to departure everything was perfect. The breakfast is superb. The rooms are warm, clean and comfortable. This property does have character. It is not a modern box room hotel. It does provide excellent accommodation but... More

clean rooms, comfy beds, lovely touches. In the North Yorkshire Dales area, offering country walks, restaurants and pubs all on the doorstep. The home of both Theakstone and Blacksheep brewery, which are only a few minutes walk from the door of the B&B. The owners are great company and the breakfast is great. Highly recommend.
