My wife and I really enjoyed our evening meal here. Food was outstanding, service pleasant and the wine delightful. A little pricey but I would be prepared to pay it again. I will certainly go again when I am in the area.

Arrived for an overnight stay for my husbands birthday. Warmly welcomed by a lovely lady who showed us to our beautiful ground floor bedroom (room 20). A lovely spacious room with access to a large garden area with scenic forest and moorland views. Welcomed by staff and locals in a cosy bar and enjoyed sitting next to a crackling open... More

First time we have been away for the New Year and following this experience we will probably do it again. The hotel rooms are very comfortable (especially the downstairs superior rooms) and spacious. Bathrooms need a better shower system, however there is plenty of hot water. The bar can seat around 30 and is supported by a number of small... More

When you stand in the in the car-park outside the Blacksmiths and you stop and listen for a few seconds, you can easily understand why people would keep coming back to this part of the country, and to this hotel, time and time again . . apart from the odd passing car the only other sounds to be heard are...

We called in here twice last week while we were at nearby Cropton Forestry Cabins. At lunchtime I had butternut squash soup with beautiful homemade bread and my husband had a beef ciabatta. Both were delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed them. So much so that we returned the following evening for dinner. I had red snapper on a bed of... More

We always enjoy a stay here, after a day walking the moors its a fantastic place to come back to, the staff are all friendly and service is excellent, food is very tasty and well presented, the steaks were cooked exactly as we asked and very tender. We stayed four nights in one of the garden rooms which are beautifully... More

The Blacksmiths Arms is an excellent country village hotel. We stayed here with our daughter and son in law in standard rooms and whilst they were adequate and comfortable, the bedroom lights however were inadequate and need to be improved. They were very dim. The food was of a good standard but the staff should get a special mention as... More

So fortunate to come across this lovely hotel. Great value with a large clean room that had superb views across the moors. Restaurant had good choice on menu with reasonable prices - can recommend the haddock and chips. Used as a base for exploring the moors and was not disappointed. A place to return to.

Great hotel in a lovely reliant location. Great views of the moors. The menu selection was fantastic and can recommend the fish and chips! Bar was really comfortable and cosy. Room was very clean and the staff very pleasant and helpful. We would recommend.
