The Smithy is an old blacksmith's workshop which has been completely refurbished into a cosy 2 bedroom traditional stone cottage, on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, with the most spectacular views. This cottage is just across the small country road from our Manor House Farm, in the heart of the picturesque North York Moors National Park. Surrounded by the beautiful scenery of rural North Yorkshire, and located between the seaside town of Scarborough and the village of Snainton, it is ideally situated for peace and tranquillity as well as for lots to see and do in nearby towns and villages. Beautifully furnished, this cosy, dog friendly, self-catering cottage has one king bedroom, and one single bedroom, sleeping three guests. The Smithy accommodation is entirely on the ground floor, making it accessible for those with limited mobility. There is a comfortable sitting room with french windows opening onto the large patio and surrounding countryside. The fully-fitted and well-equipped dining kitchen includes a fridge/freezer, electric oven and hob, microwave oven and a washer/dryer. The Master Bedroom has a king-size bed, chest of drawers, bedside cabinets and lamps, and chair. The Single Bedroom has a single bed, wardrobe, and bedside cabinet. The Family Bathroom has a shower, wash-hand basin, WC and heated towel rail. All rooms have amazing views. There is also a large outdoor seating area with garden furniture, and wonderful views over the countryside. Please note: Gardens/Outside areas not necessarily dog proof, even if fenced/walled. Please keep your dogs under control, especially near farm animals.

A delightful return visit to this peaceful location in very comfortable surroundings., Thank you once again and we hope to return and will recommend your excellent company. Your standards in all direction are right at the top end
You rapid attention to the blocked shower overflow and broken handrail was excellent . Thank you . Perhaps the Cottage is now in need of minor work, ie Shower grouting dirty, patio needs a mould removed and weed . Otherwise all was very satisfactory and well equipped.

The cottage and scenery are beautiful. The cottage had everything we needed especially given the covid restrictions. We were only 30 mins away from areas of interest such as Scarborough, Whitby and Dalby Forrest. Cottage was very homely and modern but with a cottage appeal. Plenty of space for 2-3 adults and dog friendly which was a big bonus.
The patio area could do with a bit more furniture, perhaps some lounger chairs / bigger table and chairs - such a great area.

Peaceful place, wonderful views.
Gutters overflowing. Spare batteries for the TV remote would be useful.

Wonderful location in a beautiful and quiet valley. Perfect as a base for walks in the North York Moors National Park. It's wonderful to sit on the patio on a sunny day and listen to the birds singing. Very clean and the linen and towels had also been washed at a temperature of at least 60C, which meant they were properly clean and fresh. Nice to have mini guest soaps to use. Appreciate your friendly and professional communications. Thank you.
On our first visit (in October 2020) we had to unblock the shower (there was a lot of previous guest's hair trapped in the drainage...) The mattresses are too soft. The guttering over the roof at the back needs to be looked at as the rain falls straight on to the patio outside the french windows.

Wonderful location and perfect holiday cottage. Thanks.
Last time we visited everything was genuinely sparklingly clean. This time there were some slightly grimy pans in the cupboard. I fully appreciate that this is guests not cleaning up after themselves, everything else was lovely.

Peaceful relaxing stay
Evidence of longstanding slight water leak from the back of the shower into the back of the adjacent cupboard in the hallway.

We have stayed here before and enjoyed the peace and quiet and the beautiful scenery.
On our first stay the property was immaculately clean and fresh but unfortunately that cannot be said this time. Huge cobwebs everywhere, dust and dead insects on every window sill, dirty floors and a a major leak coming from the shower that went through the fuse box cupboard into the hallway after every use. No hoover just a tiny dustpan. We will not be returning here again.

Love this place, the perfect get away from it all. Beautiful surroundings & a great location for exploring the coast & N Yorks moors. Comfortable cottage off the beaten track, well furnished & equipped to a high standard.
Our only disappointment was that the heating had not been turned on, so very cold when we arrived (February) and the cottage took a good 36hrs to warm through. (The thermostat had been turned up, but the heating had been switched off at the fuse box!) oh & one other thing - the toilet hadn’t been flushed.
