Gold Award-winning Basin Howe Farm Cottages are situated on the southern edge of the North York Moors just over 1 mile from Sawdon village near Pickering, elevated above the Wolds within easy reach of the Yorkshire Coast. Accommodation includes four stunning cottages converted from two large barns. All cottages sleep four guests, and each has its own unique charm and character with three featuring en-suite facilities and one with a modern wet room offering disabled access. The cottages are surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, and the area is perfect for coast and country touring with a wide choice of walking, cycling and birdwatching opportunities locally. We're also a top spot for star gazing.
