Best place we have stayed in. We loved the peace & quiet. Our favourite things this holiday were - Malton for shops - Helmsley for the Walled Garden and quirky café - Falling Foss for its tearoom and waterfall - Denison Arms for the food and Robin Hoods Bay for the steep walk back to the car park.

We had a fabulous week at Opal Cottage, despite the wet weather! We enjoyed visiting Bempton Cliffs, Filey, The Birds of Prey Centre at Helmsley and walks across the Moors and the coast. Basin Howe Farm is a beautiful place to stay and the cottage is perfect. We hope to be back in Yorkshire soon!

An incredibly enjoyable stay. Just the most beautiful gardens & surroundings. You couldn't ask for any more from the cottage. Spent the week exploring the local area and going to see the sea. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We have loved staying at Basin Howe, a lovely spot with convenient access to Scarborough as well as the moors. D...'s research into the life & achievements of his great-grand-father brought us here, where we have made new friends. Many of the places William & Ellen knew have become real places for us. And we visited Whitby and the Captain Cook connection too! Thank you Richard & Heather.

"We have been to the North York Moors before, always at Easter, but I think this has been our favourite visit so far. This is a brilliant location surrounded by beautiful forests and amazing bike tracks. Not to mention it being a 15 minute drive from the sea. We have never been short of things to do and I have loved every second of it."

We returned for another holiday with the family following our super summer holiday here. Once again the hospitality from Heather and Richard was superb, the cottage was immaculate and the gardens were still in great condition despite the time of year. it was a delight to be here again and it was a great base for visiting many attractions in the East of North Yorkshire. Many thanks again!
