Individually designed barn conversion set in a small rural development near to the North York Moors and Scarborough.

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 on the edge of Troutsdale and 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 communal gardens, including a tranquil mature rose 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.
For those who enjoy fine dining, The Anvil is the nearest restaurant, located in the village of Sawdon serving an excellent menu and hearty Sunday roasts (booking in advance is essential).
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.

    An excellent holiday. Although four cottages on site (converted stone barns) they are cleverly designed so that they do not face each other. Lovely award winning gardens (Yorkshire in Bloom) and the silence is golden. Hosts very helpful with plenty of literature available in the cottage. Eating must be well planned as cottages well off the beaten track although that presented no problem for us with well equipped kitchen.

    A well maintained and beautifully located cottage. This was the first time we'd spent any extended time in Yorkshire and we loved the area, so scenic and beautiful and quiet But with the added coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby, Filey and Bridlington we had the best of both worlds, beautiful country views and walks and bustling seaside resorts. The cottage itself was perfect, simply couldn't find a fault if I tried. The gardens and grounds were quite isolated, but lots of interesting wildlife for my two young children to enjoy too and very beautifully laid out and maintained. Will definitely return and would wholeheartedly recommend.
