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 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. The owners are happy to provide stabling for horses on site (to be arranged directly) and 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.
“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.”
Topaz Cottage benefits from a large lounge/diner with exposed beams and arched windows. The lounge is furnished with two leather settees, one two and one three seater, plus a comfortable easy chair. This unit has two large en suite bedrooms.
