A lovely well presented cottage in beautiful peaceful surroundings......... Amazing regular displays of bees & butterflies.  We were graced with excellent weather enabling us to enjoy the coastal towns of Scarborough & Whitby, the latter by the North Yorks Moors Railway, Robin Hood's Bay and the Yorkshire Air Museum.  A fantastic base for a relaxing holiday.

Another fantastic stay.  Been coming here for several years but first time staying in Jade.  My new favourite cottage!  Basin Howe Farm can't be beaten for peace and tranquility, so relaxing.  Not the best weather but it certainly did not stop us.  Already looking forward to another wonderful stay.

We've had a wonderful week in a warm, spacious cottage in peaceful surroundings. Gorgeous gardens here!  As two gardeners ourselves we've been spoilt!  What a hidden gem.  Many thanks to the owners for such a friendly welcome.  Your awards are well deserved.  (Yorkshire in Bloom Gold for 2019,)

What a beautiful place you have created here.  A haven for wildlife, as keen birdwatchers it was just perfect.  Opal Cottage was just perfect, warm & comfortable.  Hopefully we will return.  All the very best and thank you.

Had a lovely two week holiday in Amber - so good for me as I need the "wet room"!  Thank you Heather & Richard for looking after us so well.  It's so peaceful & quiet it was a job to drag ourselves away to go out!!

Wow what a wonderful week we've had in such a wonderful cottage and surroundings.  The weather has been amazing, the wildlife was great and the beautiful gardens that you work so hard in we must say is so worth it.  Will be recommending to all.

Beautiful cottage & surroundings.  Had a really great week and very lucky with the weather!  Great places to visit nearby! Always enjoy a trip to Dalby Forest, great for biking & walking.  My daughter especially enjoyed Go Ape! Had a really lovely meal at the Grapes Inn very friendly staff & great food!

Another lovely week in Jade Cottage, thank you.  Top find of the week was Glaves Butchers in Brompton.  Amazing pies & sausages etc.  Picnics sorted.  Also revisited the fish & chip shop in Snainton - we thought it had changed hands but just as delicious and welcoming as previously with picnic tables out the back.  Despite the weather another lovely week in a lovely cottage.

We had a great time at Opal Cottage.  Loved the skypod and gardens and have never stayed anywhere so quiet + still - rare in today's busy World.  We visited lots of places but or favourites were Sewerby Hall and Dalby Forest.  This is the best cottage we have ever stayed in and we hope to return.  Thank you!
