At the centre of the village is the village green, with its trees, cricket pitch and children's playground, surrounded by houses. Thornton Watlass Church dates from the 11th century and the village also has a public house called the Buck Inn. The nearby town of Masham is situated alongside the River Ure and boasts a market square, where a Wednesday market has been joined by a popular Saturday market. There are lots of walks around the area, including a 10 mile walk along the Ure, arguably one of the best in the UK. The town boasts a range of crafts, galleries, shops, restaurants and pubs, and is the home to the Black Sheep Brewery, which brews 11 million pints of beer a year!

We had a great holiday at this lovely cottage. The village was very central for visiting lots of local attractions, with a good playground and pub. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we all loved meeting the horses xx

very comfortable cottage, friendly owners living next door, clean and fully functional. Quiet village setting (with pub!) Central to lots of nice places to visit, shops within short drive. Lovely countryside. My dog also had a lovely time, she now know what a horse is!

We spent a week at Millstone Cottage to base our selves for a week in the Yorkshire Dales. Very friendly owners, lovely countryside, more than enough to fill our week, which flew by. Miles of running and walking tracks and plenty of lovely food. Would recommend to anyone young or old.

We stayed 3 nights at Millstone Cottage. The party consisted of me and my partner and our 2 adult daughters who drove there separately (3 cars). We also had 2 dogs with us, one a large malamute puppy, We had a good break, with visits to Northallerton, Jervaux Abbey and Masham. Good walking and good food and drink - we went to the Bay Horse in Masham and the food was of a very high quality. The owners are a young couple with a small baby who live in the adjoining building and look after retired racehorses. Their relaxed and helpful/friendly attitude made the break even more enjoyable. The cottage is in a lovely village in a fine part of the country.

Our visit over the New Year break together with friends and our dachshund Bella co-insided with the birth of the owners first child. Congratulations again! You would think us visiting at such a time would be a great inconvenience but it was far from it. We could not have been made more welcome, meeting many members of the family and friends coming to meet the new addition. Visiting with a dog can sometimes be restrictive but even Bella was made to feel part of the family, playing with the resident dog and barking at the horses (who incidently couldn't care less). The cottage had everything we required except for wireless and a good phone signal but at the end of the day we were trying to get away from it all. Would highly recommend dining at the Buck Inn, literally 50 metres away. The food was delicious and I would agree with the menu that they do the best pub lasagne.

Val and Barry -:- Rural Grimsby
The owners were fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was very spacous, very clean, plenty of heating available along with lots of hot water. The area was very picturesque , even in November, very quiet but close enough to interesting / walking areas to be convenient. The environment was perfect for us with the lovely countryside, the horses on the site, the owners obvious love of animals, it was infact a real home from home and there was nothing we were either dissatisfied with or even slightly unhappy with.
