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 and 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.
Jade Cottage has original large feature barn windows letting in an abundance of daylight to the spacious lounge and the bedroom above. Both bedrooms are on the first floor and have their own en-suite facilities. Both the kitchen and the lounge are spacious enough for a dining table and chairs so there is a choice between dining in the lounge or in the kitchen.
Guests may use the patio in front of the farm house overlooking the parterre with views to the Wolds or the seating in the mature rose garden.
