Description and Location
Just a few minutes walk from Masham main square you'll find an area historically known as Welgarth. Here was the place to draw water from an artesian well which was used for drinking and for the making of beer by the local breweries near the site. Black Sheep brewery is still on this site today but the associated commercial buildings were converted into interesting terrace houses and cottages in the mid 1900's, now all newly renovated with some being converted into apartments.
Kilderkin is a ground floor apartment at the end of one of these terraces overlooking an open area with a small green. Access is through a shared entrance hall and then to the apartment where entry is to a small hallway. The hallway leads to a modern, well equipped and tiled kitchen on the right and an adjacent fully tiled shower room with electric shower, washbasin and toilet. To the left, at the rear of the apartment, is a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, overhead storage cupboards and exposed stonework around the window. To the front of the apartment is a comfortable lounge with dining area, modern wall mounted LED electric fire and exposed pine lintel.
The apartment has been renovated with originality, style and modernity enhanced by the quality and taste in the furnishings and fitments. A cosy apartment for two close to parkland and riverside walks and a short drive from the Yorkshire Dales, Ripon City, Harrogate and the Nidderdale Area of outstanding Natural Beauty and all they have to offer.
In the last reaches of the Pennines the river Ure twists and turns with the undulating landscape. The river is now so full and wide that bridging is difficult and sites of crossings are route centres, around which important local settlements were founded. One such settlement is the small market town of Masham, a 'Gateway to The Dales'. An ancient market town since 1393 with one of the largest market places in the north of England, now faced by stylish Georgian buildings which surround the central market cross.
