We will be visiting for our fourth time shortly and both looking forward to another wonderful taste of Ann and Colin's excellent hospitality. Looking forward to log fire and the breakfast with freshly made bread. The little touches make this far better than staying in a hotel. The area is great for exploring and your in close proximity to Pickering,... More

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 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
