Situated in an elevated position on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, yet within easy reach of Scarborough; Basin Howe Farm Cottages comprise a small development of two barns forming four cottages arranged around a parterre to provide holiday accommodation of a superior standard. The property is in a rural location on the edge of The North York Moors and close to Dalby Forest (which has Dark Skies status, great for avid stargazers) and is surrounded by tranquil farmland with a splendid outlook over the Wolds. Opened in 2011 each barn has been individually styled, architecturally designed and benefits from beautiful character features such as exposed stonework, solid oak beams and oak flooring married together with modern conveniences. All cottages have comfortable sofas and comfortable beds.
Guests have access to two acres of award winning gardens, including a newly designed oriental gravel garden. Secure storage for bicycles. The area is perfect for horse riders or cyclists to ride straight out with miles of bridleways and cycle routes to explore in and around the North York Moors, an excellent area for bird watching.
The nearest local pub and restaurant is The Anvil Inn in Sawdon village serving a good menu and hearty Sunday roasts (booking is recommended).
Basin Howe Farm takes its name from its very own Bronze Age burial mound.  This is a truly unique selection of cottages offering a chance to get away from it all in scenic surroundings.
Opal Cottage benefits from huge floor to ceiling double aspect cart shed windows bathing the lounge in light.  The lounge has a wood burning stove for additional comfort in the cooler months.
The kitchen/diner is in a garden room with aspects of the garden on all three sides and views beyond. This room leads directly to an area of decking overlooking a large pond (children beware!) perfect for enjoying al fresco dining or evening drinks.
Bedroom One is on the ground floor with a Super King zip n link bed and en suite bath room with thermostatic shower over the bath.  Bedroom Two is on the first floor.  It has a King size metal framed bed and en suite shower room with shower cubicle.
