18th century holiday home in the heart of Masham


Black Bull Cottage sleeps 4-6 people.


Bedroom 1: double room with en-suite (free standing bath & shower)

Bedroom 2: double room with en-suite (walk in shower)


Plus a double sofabed in the sitting room.

In the heart of the bustling market town of Masham and named for Theakstons’ first ever pub, Black Bull Cottage was originally home to the brewery’s hardworking drayhorses. Nowadays the accommodation is a little more luxurious with two comfortable double en suite bedrooms, newly renovated sitting room and a well equipped kitchen dining room. Sensitively refurbished to blend original features with modern design, the emphasis is very much on comfort and relaxation. Welcome to your home from home!

The space

Black Bull Cottage is ideal for couples or families. The cosy, well appointed living room has comfy sofas, a large log burner and smart TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime. There's an additonal seating area for reading or board games and a record player if you want to bring some vinyl. We have left a few records from the market square for you to enjoy but there is also a bluetooth speaker if you prefer to stream your music. We have plenty of boardgames for the competitive guest and a selection of books for you to get stuck into. 

The well appointed kitchen dining room is a perfect space to make the most of amazing local ingredients to rustle up culinary delights. If you prefer to let someone else cook the Kings Head and Bay Horse pubs both offer takeaway, and there's a great fish and chip shop in the square. Either way, we've left a small honesty bar if you fancy mixing a pre-dinner cocktail. 

Heading upstairs you'll find two stylish double bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms. Duvets are hypoallergenic and we have a selection of hypoallergenic and duck down pillows. Mixing vintage finds with modern accents, the bedrooms are decorated in peaceful Farrow & Ball colours to help you have the most relaxing stay. The master en suite has a freestanding bath so you can enjoy a long soak after one of the many beautiful local walks, and the second en suite boasts a large walk-in shower. 

There's another little reading nook upstairs if you want to sneak a moment for yourself.

Due to the coronavirus, we’re taking extra steps to clean and sanitize frequently touched surfaces between reservations. We have committed to AirBnB's five step enhanced cleaning protocol.
