Tucked away in the stunning North Yorkshire Moors, this delightful B&B was one of the best places we've ever stayed. We stayed in the beautifully decorated, cosy and welcoming Ann's Cottage (though a look round The Old Smithy was just as impressive). A wood fire, built for you in the day while you're out, was a lovely addition and the... More

Excellent as usual. This was our sixth visit a little bolt hole where we can truly relax. Ann's cottage is a 5* accommodation from breakfasts to the log burner roaring away welcoming you back after a day visiting the area. Ann and Colin are the perfect hosts and both cottage's are obviously a labour of love which is reflected in... More

Our daughter and son in law Claire & Tristan booked us into the Old Smithy as a special treat for my husband's 60th birthday. They had stayed before and couldn't paise Colin & Ann's hospitality & the Old Smithy cottage any higher. It was our first visit and it certainly won't be the last. The cottage was beautiful, immaculately clean... More

my partner and I needed a quick weekend break and found Ann's Cottage. Immediately after phoning in and speaking to Ann herself did I know I had made the right decision. Friendly, helpful and accommodating over the phone and even more so in person when we arrived there. Even though the weather would be considered miserable it was all compensated... More

We spent two nights staying in the Old Smithy. It was perfect; a blazing fire, a very comfortable bed, delicious breakfasts (including home made bread) and delightful and generous hosts! The cleanliness was awesome. This is a really special place!

Anne & Colin the... More
