This 10 out of 10 review was posted on Reevo by one of our Autumn guests

"We both enjoyed our stay in 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 and 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."


This is a great spot for bird watching.  Keen watchers have listed 30+ species in our garden and within walking distance.  We are surrounded by a diverse range of habitat - areas of thicket & miles of hedgerow, hay meadow, farmed fields and Dalby Forest.  Woodpeckers are so colourful they always catch the eye but we have tits & warblers, goldfinches & black caps and from April onwards the swallows nest in our Forge. 

Our website has had a Makeover, you can now book immediately - no waiting for us to confirm!  We also have some cute icons! 


During October we enjoyed some fabulous sunsets. Guests have needed their cameras at the ready each evening!

Very proud that we have once again won a Gold Award in the RHS Scarborough in Bloom competition and also a Gold in the Small Business category for the whole of Yorkshire.

This super shot shows the wonderful countryside around us. The North Yorkshire Heritage Coast and Scarborough are just over the horizon. Why not book a cottage for your 2019 holiday to enjoy this special area.
