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

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.

First view gave us doubts about our choice, but once inside, our fears were alleviated. Staff were very welcoming and helpful... our room (at the end of the hotel) was very spacious, very clean and above all, very quiet. French doors led to a secluded woodland out the back, with lots of wildlife around. The lounge bar offered an open... More

We only ordered a couple of hot sandwiches with chips to keep us going and it did the trick the main menu also looked good and the service was very friendly. This inn appears to be well ran, very clean and is in a beautiful location if we are... More
