“Lovely again!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

Our third visit this year and as always we had a lovely stay with Graham and Liz. Perfect location, very welcoming and a fantastic breakfast! Visits to Bank Villa are becoming addictive, we even have a favourite room based on the view from the window (Black Sheep Brewery, just up the lane).

As always it was a pleasure and a joy having you stay again. Your sense of fun, and hubbies attire are always welcome. We are working through his wardrobe quite quickly now. Fur hat to bold shorts, what next ??? We cannot wait to find out.
Missing you both already. Love to all the gang. See you soon.
Love liz and Graham x

Our weekend stay at Bank Villa was one of the most enjoyable and relaxing breaks we have had. The rooms are prestine and provide everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The hosts Liz and Graham made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Liz's cooking was excellent and the quality of the breakfast produce was amazing and plentiful. Both Liz and Graham are the perfect hosts and should be proud of the experience they provide to their guests. We would certainly return to Bank Villa when next visiting Masham.

Room Tip: Book in advance if possible to avoid disappointment as they are an extremely busy guesthouse.

We stayed at Bank Villa after selecting it from a list of hotels, B&Bs and guest houses where we good use a Red Letter Day gift that we had received - we chose very well!

The house is full of character and the hosts were very friendly and welcoming, and they were helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. But it is important to note (for some people) that they did not cross the line that some owners do in terms of being 'over-friendly' or telling you what you should be doing with your visit.

Masham is a lovely village and we were very impressed with everything it had to offer - shops, pubs and the Black Sheep Brewery. The rest of Yorkshire is within easy reach - we particularly enjoyed Wensleydale and Aysgarth Falls.

We would definately stay here again and highly recommend it to everyone.

Oh, and they serve a proper English Breakfast which is sourced from local farms - excellent!

I was staying at Bank Villa as part of a wedding party, that had booked up most of the rooms for both Friday and Saturday nights. The owners, Liz and Graham really looked after us all and made us feel really welcome.

The rooms were all really clean, tidy and characterful.

The breakfast was excellent and with Graham and Liz's hospitality made for a great weekend.

We have already talked about returning to the area and will definitely be staying at Bank Villa once again.

Lovely guesthouse and Graham and Liz made us very welcome, nothing was too much trouble. The house is a traditional old villa and is large and quirky. The communal areas are great to relax and we enjoyed a nice glass of wine in the conservatory, which was nice and relaxing rather than having to stay in the bedroom. The place was immaculately clean and what a great breakfast! The produce was fresh and locally sourced and we didn't need to eat again until the evening. I would recommend this as a good place to stay.

Wonderful guest house. Friendly welcome with assistance with luggage for a less than able guest. The bedroom was quirky but very comfortable. The lounges are just what every traveller needs to relax instead of being confined to a bedroom. The breakfast was better then you would expect from a guest house both in quality and quantity. will make a point of staying again when in the area.

Discovered Bank Villa at Masham by chance and our 2 night stay was not long enough. Liz and Graham made us feel at home and very welcome as soon as we arrived. Our en-suite room was beautifully decorated, clean and spacious with a super kingsize bed. The full english breakfast was excellent and kept us going for hours while we explored the dales. Bank Villa's location could not be bettered, the market town centre was literally a few minutes walk with bars, cafes, shops and retaurants and there is so much to see and do in the North Yorkshire area. We would thoroughly recommend Bank Villa and we can't wait to go back to sample Liz and Graham's great hospitality again and take in more sights and visits to the interesting places that we didn't have time to see last time.
