Self-Catering Reviews

October 2020
Bedroom upstairs is probably more suited to children and would benefit from some storage for clothes, apart from that the cottage was beautiful, location and facilities excellent For info .. . address given shows the cottage as no 1 Quaker Terrace it's actually no 23!! So found this a bit confusing

Such a lovely clean comfortable barn in a wonderful position for exploring the Yorkshire Dales.. Masham is very attractive and has loads of good eating places. Harrogate and Ripon are near and also Hawes where the Wensleydale Creamery is. Spent a lot in there including £30 on different unusual cheeses. The Co op backs on to the Barn so is really handy. We didn't find parking difficult. Great time. Thank you Joanne

Setch Barn cottage was everything we expected from the description .. ..a real credit to the owners. Great walking in the area and some very good pubs for eating and drinking..also with Masham being the home of two brewery's, Theakstons and The Black Sheep there was plenty of locally brewed beers to sample. The house is also around the corner from the supermarket so really handy for shopping...the town also has two excellent butchers. The cottage kitchen was so well equipped we ate in most of the time and made use of the facilities. Extremely comfortable and highly recommended property.

Setch Batch was cosy, immaculate,very comfortable and offered everything you would need.. Its situated perfectly right next to the co-op and close to many interesting shops,pubs and eateries but is quiet and peaceful. We"d definitely recommend it.

Overall the cottage was lovely.. Lots of equipment in the kitchen. Would have been nice to have a folder with information/things to do as we have had this in previous cottages and found it helpful. Cleanliness was overall fine but a bit more attention to smaller details would have been eg we found hairs in some of the drawers in the bedroom and a dead spider also lots of cobwebs in the bathroom. As mentioned by others the velux window in the master bedroom let in lots of light which meant my 18 month old struggled to sleep on a night as it was so bright. The cottage is well situated and is only a short walk into the centre of Masham. Overall we had a good stay.

Cottage was well situated in Masham, a short stroll from the centre.. Prior to our arrival the communication was excellent so we knew what to bring with us. The cottage was spotlessly clean, well appointed and comfortable.

The cottage itself was ok but had to keep the blinds drawn all the time for people walking in front of the cottage also the shed was locked so we could not use the table and chairs for the outside area in the fine weather no information about the appliances (boiler controls etc)

The property was excellent, well equipped and very comfortable for a lovely visit to Masham.. It is ideal for the shops, pubs and amenities of the area and close to some lovely accessible areas of the Yorkshire Dales. Well worth a visit.

Being right in the centre of Masham was ideal and there was good space for parking two cars.. The fixtures and fittings were very attractive with a lot of charm.
Mrs Thompson, February 2020

All in all we couldn't have been more pleased with our stay.. We found the Barn to be spotlessly clean, very comfortable, warm and fully equipped with all we needed. The beds were comfy and the shower/toilet area superb. It's easy to find with good parking and quiet in the evening/night. We thought it's location is also ideal for exploring Masham and getting out into the surrounding countryside walks.

Wonderful well kept and equipped cottage. Arrived to find this beautifully well equipped cottage with parking space and all amenities. Really nice inside and plenty of room. very well equipped kitchen and luxury shower room. nice and quiet at night for decent nights sleep. warm and comfortable. large king-size bed in main bedroom and loved the quirky upstairs twin room. Location is great and as easy to access shopping, cafes, pubs and lovely little shops. Very central to see all the sights of the dales . Masham is a wonderful gem of a market town with friendly community. The owners have ensured this holiday accommodation is of great quality together with their caretaker providing immaculate cleaning and maintenance.. We had a wonderful stay and have already booked to return next year. a big thank you to all involved with this beautiful gem and hideaway barn. Rita & Graham/Lincolnshire

Simply fabulous place to stay.. Local pubs three minutes walk away with good food. Plenty attractions nearby. The cottage is just what we expected. Parking was OK.
Mr Richards, October 2019
October 2019
The cottage was lovely and modern.. I stayed with my 2 children and husband. They only downside to the cottage was, the neighbours were not pleasant. No one said hello despite me trying to make eye contact. A lot of noise can be heard from the attached house next door during the night. We parked our car next to the cottage and it was fairly tight amongst other users. But we still managed to get the car out. The only way to achieve privacy from the neighbours was to completely shut all blinds, but this also made the property seem a little claustrophobic. I wouldn’t book this cottage again, but simply because I would prefer a view. The cottage itself was modern, clean and well maintained.

Mrs Furby is a friendly, competent host who looks after the fine detail which makes your stay comfortable.. Sketch barn is a terrific barn conversion well laid out and has everything you need at hand. Everything is finished off to a high standard. Masham is lovely village and central to everything that you may need in this part of the Dales. Five star stay.

Setch Barn was a really lovely place to stay in, spacious, clean, well equipped and the location was great, everything in walking distance.. A weekend really wasn’t long enough. We hope to return.
Mr Towle
December 2018
Masham is a truly lovely gem of a place, ideally situated in Lower Wensleydale.. The countryside is breathtaking, ideal for walks and exploring. When you get back there are several excellent pubs serving beer from the two local breweries. We usually stay in one of the pubs but thought we would give self catering a go. Setch Barn looked to be a good place to start. Initial impressions were good, it is ideally situated in the town next to the co op, you could hear the cars but it wasn’t intrusive. The property itself is attractive, if unimaginatively styled, not quite a traditional barn in rural North Yorkshire. The quality of the furnishings is good. The main room and bedrooms are a good size, however the kitchen is rather on the small size. Unfortunately the property is very cold in winter, this was further compounded with the boiler breaking down twice in two days leaving us with out hot water on two occasions and no heating. Despite the help from Sykes the matter was unresolved so we abandoned our holiday early. We wouldn’t visit the property again, in our opinion the standard isn’t there to justify the high price. What a shame.

This is a beautiful holiday home, modern, clean & comfortable.. The bathroom is amazing. Ideal location for the town and walks from the door. Only small point to make is it wasnt clear what to do with re-cycling ie whether it all went in one bin. However, we'll certainly be back.
Mr Kay
September 2018
This is the first holiday cottage that exceeded expectations.. Others we have been to did not live up to the description on the website. I would thoroughly recommend Setch Barn to anyone wishing a quiet holiday in the Yorkshire Dales.

Mr Holmes

Great cottage and had everything you needed in a lovely location.. Cheers Beautifully maintained with quality fittings and furnishings throughout. Masham and the area had everything we wanted in facilities. Beautiful quiet kept village with p!enty of drinking and eating venues to choose from. The riverside park was beautifully kept with no litter and lovely walks . Easy road links to all parts of the Yorkshire dales. Great for families or couple's wanting a wonderful holiday.
Mr Harrower
June 2018
The barn itself was very clean and comfortable, furnishing were of a very standard and could not be faulted in any way.. The outside "patio" was not accessible from the cottage and was not really enough space to be classed as a patio, we were unable to use this outside space as we would have liked. It should be made clear in the description that access is gained from going out the front door and along to the end of the barn. This was the only downside to our stay at this lovely barn.

We were invited to stay here for the weekend by my inlaws who were staying the week. It is completely tucked away yet next door to the local co op. Beautifully decorated with a fantastic wet room and extensively equipped kitchen. I had the best two nights sleep here that I have had for a long time.
