Fodor's Review

If you've ever wanted to experience the Downton Abbey lifestyle, head for this luxury hotel situated in a castle complete with battlements, a tower, and a turret. Dating back to the 18th century, it was largely rebuilt in the 19th century by its current owners, the Cunliffe-Lister family. The plush public rooms epitomize the traditional country house style, as do the spacious bedrooms, which are named after Yorkshire towns. The castle's location on one of the largest

private estates in England, 20,000 acres bordering Yorkshire Dales National Park, guarantees seclusion and abundant outdoor pursuits. There are 63 miles of trails, a spa, and an on-site cooking school. The restaurant specializes in seasonal Modern British food—much of it sourced from the estate itself. Masham is 8 miles north of Ripon and 35 miles north of Leeds and York.
