Pott Hall

Pott Hall is situated above Leighton Reservoir in the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, near Masham, with spectacular views towards the east coast and Vale of York. It is part of a working cattle and sheep farm, run by the Patchett family, and has two self-catering holiday cottages of different characters on site.

Pott Hall was once a Grange of Fountains Abbey, supplying the Cistercian monks with produce from the farm. The nearest local centre is the historic market town of Masham, 6 miles away.

Children are welcome at Pott Hall, with travel cots and high chairs available in both cottages on request, and a stairgate available in the Barn. Sorry, it is not possible for pets to be accommodated and smoking is not permitted in the properties.

A shared utility room allows for a washing machine, condenser dryer, chest freezer, barbecue and some outdoor toys. An accessibility guide is available here. Normally, bookings are taken from Saturday to Saturday, although we welcome alternative requests and try to accommodate them.
