The Forresters Arms Hotel is an attractive, traditional country inn located in the charming village of Kilburn, just north of York. Kilburn is in the North York Moors National Park, in the midst of the area fondly referred to as "Herriot Country".
Kilburn has its own claims to fame - it lies at the foot of Sutton Bank, home of the White Horse carving - a renowned North Yorkshire landmark - and it is also the location of the Robert Thompson workshops. Robert "Mouseman" Thompson was the celebrated wood carver, whose trademark is a carved church mouse on every item. His family business is still thriving and now incorporates a very popular visitor centre and café.
Kilburn is the ideal location for walkers undertaking the 110 mile Cleveland Way. Often described as two walks in one due to passing through a rich variety of heather blanketed moorland and concluding towards the dramatic nature-filled North Sea coastline. This breathtaking landscape is ideal for hiking, cycling, horse riding or days out with your canine friends, who are also more then welcome at our rural retreat.
Situated in the heart of walking country, this beautiful bed and breakfast accommodation, conveniently nestled beneath the famous White Horse, was recently acquired by Nigel and Dawn Pattinson, who also run the popular ‘Dog and Gun’ public house at nearby Carlton Miniott. Both friendly landlords are extremely keen to maintain the quintessential Old Country Inn charm that the Forrester’s bed and breakfast has become famous for, and look forward to meeting families, couples, weary tourists and business travellers alike. Visitors can expect to find warming open log fuelled fires, a superb range of real ales and a broad-ranging menu incorporating the finest of first-rate local produce. So, why not while away a Sunday afternoon socialising in the relaxing residents lounge whilst supping your favoured beverage before tucking in to one of our delicious traditional roast lunches.
The hotel's two bars feature early works from the Mouseman of Kilburn, and the hospitality and relaxed atmosphere will appeal to guests of all ages. Visitors will find the locals very welcoming and many are happy to brighten up the evening with entertaining local tales! Previously being an inn, the hotel provided respite for weary coachmen and stabling for their horses as they stopped at the village's green on their journey to the towns beyond. You can still see clear evidence of the old stables in the top bar.
The hotel's nine bedrooms all have en suite bathrooms with showers and baths. All visitors are guaranteed a heartfelt Yorkshire welcome from Nigel, Dawn and the devoted staff at The Forresters Arms Hotel. Once visitors uncover the charm of Kilburn, they return as regular visitors, and good friends.
