Details

Basin Howe Farm has an elevated position on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, near Dalby Forest yet within easy reach of the popular seaside town of Scarborough.

Two large renovated barns around a parterre and koi pond provide 4 holiday cottages of a superior standard. We are surrounded by farmland with a splendid outlook over the Wolds. Each barn has been individually styled to retain character features such as exposed stonework, wooden beams and oak flooring.

We have Wi-Fi in all four cottages.

Amber Cottage

Amber Cottage has a real wow factor with double height lounge, huge windows, oak beams and oak flooring. An open plan staircase leads through an archway to a mezzanine floor.

Amber Cottage has wheelchair access through double width doors with a low threshold and a gently sloping path from the car park. All of the ground floor is level thus providing easy disabled access, perfect for people with mobility problems. Amber Cottage has been assessed by VisitEngland as suitable for people who may need to use a wheelchair some of the time.

The kitchen is well equipped for a self catering holiday and is easily accessed from the open plan lounge.

This cottage sleeps four - there is one large ground floor bedroom and a twin room on the mezzanine. It has a stylish wet room with disabled access, plenty of room and a shower that will make your day. There is a sunny patio with seating and access to the Pod summer house.

Amber Cottage can be linked with Topaz to sleep 8.

Topaz Cottage

Topaz Cottage sleeps 4 plus a cot and is dog friendly, one well behaved dog is welcome. This cottage is stunning with a wealth of period features – stone walls, arched windows and wooden beams. There are 2 generous en-suite bedrooms. The kitchen is very bright and light and well equipped for a self catering holiday.

This cottage can be linked with Amber Cottage to sleep 8.

Amber and Topaz share a large patio and both are close to the Pod summer house.

Jade Cottage

Jade Cottage sleeps 4 plus a cot and is dog friendly, one well behaved dog is welcome. This cottage features a huge lounge with large windows and solid oak floors. The generous kitchen is well equipped for a self catering holiday. Guests may dine in either the kitchen or the lounge – both have oak dining tables and padded chairs.

There are two en-suite bedrooms on the first floor to sleep four. One bedroom has a feature window looking out towards the Bronze Age burial mound and a king size wrought iron bed. The other bedroom has twin beds.

Patio tables and chairs are provided in front of the farmhouse looking out across the parterre to the Wolds beyond.

Opal Cottage

Opal Cottage is absolutely superb. The lounge is double height with double aspect cartshed windows, log burning stove and brick and stone feature walls. The bright and spacious kitchen/diner is in a garden room to die for with views of the garden on three sides. It has everything you need for a self catering holiday plus direct access to a decking area over the pond – perfect for morning coffee, al fresco dining or those pre dinner drinks.

Two good sized bedrooms, both are en-suite – one on the ground floor with a huge super king zip’n’link bed which can be used as full sized twin beds, the second bedroom is accessed via its own staircase with a king size wrought iron bed, exposed wood beams, a feature stone wall and en suite shower room.

The location is ideal for guests who enjoy outdoor activities including star gazing and bird watching. Walkers and cyclists can enjoy miles of trails to explore the National Park. We are close to many local attractions such as Dalby Forest, Flamingo Land and Castle Howard plus the stunning North Yorkshire Heritage Coastline. The North Yorks Steam Railway starts from Pickering only 12 miles away and meanders through Heartbeat country into the Moors. Guests have access to two acres of gardens with seating areas. There is secure storage for bicycles. We now have Wi-Fi too. Sawdon is the nearest village with The Anvil pub and excellent restaurant and there is also a nine hole golf course.

Basin Howe Farm takes its name from our very own Bronze Age burial mound. This is a truly unique selection of cottages offering you a chance to get away from the traffic hum and listen to the birds in scenic surroundings.
