Masongill Lodge is a self catering holiday home situated just within the western boundary of the Yorkshire Dales National Park on the border with Lancashire and Cumbria.
This luxury holiday rental, which dates from 1709 is a detached Grade II listed Yorkshire long house of character and charm. The cottage is located within its own grounds in the small, attractive and peaceful hamlet of Masongill, a dozen houses half a mile up a single track no-through road which leads directly on to the fells.
From the well tended plantsman's garden and two paddocks there are beautiful views to the west as far as the Irish sea and to the east to the summit of Ingleborough. The holiday cottage is in an ideal location for an outdoor break with plenty of scenic walking and cycling directly from the front door of the property.
