Take a look at our new Wildlife page. This week our trail camera caught our first exciting pictures of a badger. The area around us is brilliant for seeing wildlife.

Channel 5 is running a 3 part documentary "The Yorkshire Steam Railway : All Aboard" all about the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. Airing at 8pm on March 2nd, 9th and 16th these programmes go behind the scenes at our local heritage steam railway based just down the road in Pickering. This year the NYMR celebrates its 50th year and we invite you to book a week at Basin Howe Farm Cottages this season and enjoy a trip on the railway during your stay.

We are proud to announce that for the fourth year running we have won a Gold Award in the Yorkshire in Bloom competition, part of the RHS Britain in Bloom campaign. As guests at Basin Howe Farm Cottages you are welcome to enjoy all areas of our lovely gardens.

Thirsty Squirrel

Basin Howe Farm is a great place for spotting wildlife - this cheeky chap came to our birdbath! Spaces still in July and August. Time to grab a bargain.

We are happy to say that we have had another glowing inspection report. Our Visit England 4 Star Gold rating has again been confirmed.

"Four well managed and very well presented holiday cottages offering spacious well appointed accommodation in a delightful rural location, yet within easy reach of Ryedale attractions and the East coast."

We try hard so it is encouraging when an inspector with a breadth of experience is complimentary!

Because of the great feedback from guests on Reevo - 9.5 or above all last season for Topaz Cottage and Jade Cottage we have again been awarded a Customer's Choice Award by Cottages For You. We are in the top 12% of the largest Agency in the UK!
