About these Holiday Cottages

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. 

Amber Cottage (Disabled Access)

Single storey Amber Cottage is a stunning property with a double height lounge and vast windows.  Character oak beams and oak flooring give this property the extra 'wow factor', and an open plan staircase leads up to a mezzanine floor.

There is a spacious ground floor bedroom and 1 twin bedroom located on the mezzanine.  A stylish wet room has level/ wheelchair access and a cutting edge thermostatically controlled shower.  The kitchen features all self-catering essentials.

This property has wheelchair access inclusive of double doors with a low threshold, plus a gentle sloping path direct to the cottage from the car park.

Topaz Cottage (Dog Friendly)

Topaz is a real architectural gem brimming with period features including stone walls, wooden beams and arched windows.  Two spacious bedrooms both have en-suite facilities and the kitchen is bright and fully equipped to cater for all your needs.  Downstairs is all level, with a ground floor bathroom, ideal for our less mobile guests.

One well trained medium sized dog is welcome in this cottage, and Topaz can be linked and booked in conjunction with Amber Cottage to sleep up to 8 guests.

Jade Cottage (Dog Friendly)

Beautiful Jade Cottage has a superb large lounge with huge windows and character solid oak flooring.  A spacious kitchen is well equipped.  Both the lounge and kitchen feature oak dining tables, making each a perfect spot for dining. 

The two bedrooms on the first floor both benefit from en-suite facilities. One has a wrought iron king-size double bed and wonderful views through a feature window towards a burial mound.  The other is a stylish twin with metal beds.  A furnished patio area is to the front of the farmhouse with views towards the parterre and the Wolds.

Opal Cottage

Opal Cottage is a real gem with a cosy woodburner, stone and brick walls and oak flooring.  The spacious, light kitchen/ diner is fully equuipped, and Opal has a unique decking area overlooking one of our two ponds. 

Two generously sized bedrooms include a super king-size double with zip and link beds on the ground floor (can be a twin if preferred), and a second king-size double with a wrought iron bed, exposed beams and an en-suite shower room featuring its own staircase.
