Friends invited us to share a holiday at Ann's Cottage and The Old Smithy about 6 or 7 years ago. We vowed then that we would return and have done so twice a year ever since. The accommodation, the facilities, the food, the walks and the views are all fantastic; but the principal attraction is the welcome and the hospitality... More

First visit to this part of Yorkshire - Rosedale Abbey is fantastic for walking, pubs with great food and friendly people. Ann and Colin are fantastic hosts,so friendly, provided a wonderful breakfast - complete with homemade bread - served to your room. This is no ordinary Bed & Breakfast and hopefully we will visit again. John & Elaine Whitehouse -... More

First time to Yorkshire and would come back for this alone! So good in every respect, and I do mean every. The accommodation and location is terrific, the breakfasts fabulous, and Colin and Ann make you feel special! If it wasn't for the 600 mile round trip we would be back here once a month!

A little gem nestled in picturesque Rosedale and perfectly located for all that the North York Moors have to offer. Ann and Colin are great hosts and provided a wonderful breakfast - complete with fresh homemade bread - served to your room. To be honest The Old Smithy is more than a B and B; it is your own little... More

Another fantastic break to the Yorkshire Moors at Ann's Cottage, fabulous hosts, fabulous views, fantastic cooked breakfast and delicious homemade bread. Also the new bedroom - what a bonus! Enjoyed our stay (our 4th visit). Excellent pubs - Blacksmith Arms, the newly opened Melbourne Arms in the village, lovely food. Half an hour from Whitby and the coast also days... More

This is our 4th time at this delightful, warm & very friendly cottage. Hosts Ann & Colin were again most welcoming & we were welcomed with a cuppa & a sit in their kitchen to catch up over the past years events. We stayed in The Smithy (The larger of the 2 cottages) and it was like coming home -... More

Lots of our family have already stayed here so we new it would be great but it was better than we had hoped for. The brevity of this review does not reflect on the how much we enjoyed our stay. If you what to stay in Rosedale then stay here.

This place is the most extraordinary spot you will ever come across. It is run as a business, but the "feel" you will get is that the hosts, Ann & Colin, want no more than to meet and care for guests in the most personal way possible. You arrive as guests and leave as friends. We have visited on many... More

Just back from a wonderful stay at the cottage. What a find! Loved everything about it, set in glorious countryside, with kind and friendly hosts, Ann and Colin. Already booked return visit! Can't wait. If you like glorious scenery, an idyllic base and great breakfasts; this is the place to be!
