Lovely cottage.  Very clean.  So quiet here, lovely to relax.  Gardens are beautiful.  Fascinating to watch the birds.  A good base for visiting places.

Jade Cottage at Basin Howe Farm is a wonderful place to stay.  My daughter was so delighted with her en suite bathroom.  All the rooms were so tastefully decorated.  I loved the pictures of the Pekinese in the living room and the china in the cabinet.  This is the nicest holiday cottage we have stayed in to date.  I loved the rose garden so relaxing with the plants so tastefully combined and the surprise with the dragon!  I enjoyed sitting in the Pod and enjoyed the views.  Many Thanks!

Hazel & family from Warrington, Stayed in Jade Cottage, July 2019

We have had a lovely relaxing stay in this beautiful setting.  A haven of nature, bird & wildlife.  The gardens are certainly award winning and an extra bonus.  We were blessed with sunny weather and enjoyed days out in Sandsend, Pickering, Whitby - nice walks on doorstep for the dog.  Had nice meal in The Grapes Inn, Ebberston.  Lovely hosts & sensitively restored buildings mixing old & new.  Thank you & look forward to booking again in the future.

Thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful cottage again, very clean and spotless.  The girls loved their twin bedroom and en suite was an added bonus.  The weather has been great especially towards the end of the week.  I've spotted lots of animals from pheasants to deer and the nature makes it a perfect setting.  Lots of space to lay back & relax.  Pod has an amazing view, good space to read a book.  Really enjoyed it, this was a pleasure staying here.

Foster family, Stayed in Jade Cottage, April 2019

This review gave us 10 out of 10 on Reevo.  "We both enjoyed our stay at Amber, my wife is disabled and managed very well in the cottage finding the lift and rise chair helpful, as this is what lets most holiday cottages down, the shower in the wet room was superb with plenty of space.  We both enjoyed peace & quiet at basin howe, with lovely gardens and the sculptures  amazing.  We will return as there is so much to do in the area a week is never enough.

Our 5th visit to your amazing cottages. Another great relaxing holiday, we can't believe it's been so long between visits. We're coming back next Spring. A big thank you for all your care and friendship. Sunday lunch at the Grapes was very good, had a great family day at the Playdale Farm All the animals had space and was very clean, lots for children to do. A good visit to Bridlington on a sunny 16 degree day, end of October making sandcastles! Enjoyed walks with George in the forest so near. Many thanks.
