A car is almost essential for travelling to the cottage and exploring the area around Masham and the Dales. Fearby is a great base. You have the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales on your doorstep and a mere 20-minute drive from the A1 Motorway. York, Leeds and Durham are only about an hour’s drive away.
Travelling from the South on the A1, you need to exit at Junction 50 signposted A61 for Ripon and Thirsk, then follow signs to Masham, which will bring you west along the A6108.
If arriving from the North on the A1, you should exit at Junction 51 Leeming Bar – signed for Northallerton and Bedale. Follow the Bedale signs then the Masham signs.
