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!

This (Amber) was chosen to suit a disabled person and was indeed very good for myself. We loved the location and had some of our meals up in the Globe. My mobility had improved from the time of booking so I was able to negotiate the stairs up to the Globe. The area is outstanding and the variety of birds seen at the cottage was amazing and the wildlife - Hares, Pheasants, deer, the North Yorks Moors Railway a must see, All in All a Lovely Holiday, THANKS!

Cottage lovely, ideal for someone with disabilities. Weather fantastic. Peace & quiet & relaxation for two people who are carers was much needed & wonderful. Gardens are exceptional. Been to Filey, Scarborough, Bridlington, Whitby, Pickering, Malton, Helmsley & Thornton le Dale. Ice cream parlour (Baldersons) a must. Breakfast at Balderstons cafe fantastic.

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.
