Our Story

We first saw the Blacksmiths in February 2018 at which point it had been closed for over a year, the rain was coming through the roof and the weeds had taken over the garden. However, we fell in love with beauty of the location and the history of the building. We were certain we could breathe life back into this building.

So, in the summer of 2018 our family moved the 200 miles south from Scotland where we lived and made the Blacksmiths our home. We started straight away on getting the hotel back in order and ready to welcome guests from the middle of July.

We aren’t native to Yorkshire, but we had often holidayed in the area and loved it. The wilds of the moors, the beautiful coastline, the history, the heritage and the great food made it a firm favourite; and so when the chance came to live here, we jumped!
