Welcome to Masham

Nestled in the beautiful rolling hills of Lower Wensleydale, Masham (or “Massam”, as it’s pronounced) is a small market town full of ancient, yellow-brick houses and other rustic charms. Locally, it’s known for its family-owned breweries, and events like its steam rally and sheep fair. The town also has a historic arts culture, with links to author Lewis Carroll and painter JMW Turner.

Have a gander at Harrogate

Harrogate is one of Yorkshire’s proudest settlements; a beautiful spa town that’s home to manicured English gardens, Edwardian architecture, and famously, Turkish baths. Visitors passing through can enjoy browsing a wide range of both independent and chain stores in the Montpellier quarter, pamper themselves at the popular Turkish baths, or visit the oldest tourist attraction in England: Mother Shipton’s Cave.

Welcome to the Black Sheep Brewery

Black Sheep ales are an original product of Masham, and a visit to its brewery is one of the best ways to get closer to the spirit of the town. On one of their “shepherded” tours, you’ll be able to see the working traditional brewhouse, and learn about each phase that goes into the brand’s famous beers, before going back to the bar for a taste of the finished product straight from source.
