B&B's just don't come better than this! We have been staying in Ann's cottage for 8 years now and we feel like we're coming home every time we return. Ann and Colin are warm, friendly and welcome you like old friends; nothing is too much trouble. The cottage is beautifully furnished with everything you need and the new extension makes... More

I couldn't possibly word this review well enough to do the cottage, the old smithy and both Ann and Colin justice. This is the most beautiful accommodation I have seen, and set in the outstandingly beautiful and idillic surroundings of the Yorkshire moors. With incredible hosts; both Ann and Colin welcome you in such a way you feel right at... More

I booked this delightful place to celebrate my sister in laws 50th birthday, and we could not have been more warmly welcomed. Absolutely stunning accomodation, Ann and Colin have thought of everything. Lovely roaring fire waiting for us, spectacularly clean, and what a breakfast! We also had our evening meal delivered from Moors Kitchen superb, delicious food. Cannot recommend this... More

We are regular visitors to Ann and Colin's country cottages and the welcome is always the warmest you could imagine. Everything is perfect and the attention to detail is exceptional. The log fire is a real bonus, and will be lit for your arrival. The new bedroom extension to Ann's Cottage is a real success. The breakfasts are superb! Do... More

Beautiful location, luxurious accommodation and the fantastic Ann & Colin looking after you like royalty with 5 star food and hospitality. They have turned b&b into a vocation. Well done on your 5 stars.

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
