Just stayed the one night in room 14 which had lovely views and a huge bathroom ( bath and walk in shower). The evening meal was very good, an imaginative menu with excellent service. Staff all friendly and helpful. The location is lovely but it is quite isolated, a car is a must.

This hotel was in a lovely setting, although not the place to go if you hadn't got a car, or weren't very mobile. The room we were allocated was very spacious and clean, with all expected amenities- except one! While there was a good sized television, we could not use it! The aeriel ,apparently, had been blown down the previous... More

Booked the blacksmiths for a weekend away with the wife. Firstly the location is amazing, if you want to get away it is literally near NOTHING! It's a drive to Pickering and other nice places like goathland so it's ideal location to chill out but then venture nearby and explore (drove to goathland then got the steam train to Whitby... More
