“Amazing accommodation and owners”
Reviewed 21 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Our second visit to Smithy Cottage is just as delightful as our first visit. The owners are so welcoming and helpful. The cottage is clean and everything you could possibly want in a home from home. I can absolutely recommend staying here, you will not be disappointed. Going home will be such a wrench!

“Everything we could wish for and more!”
Reviewed 24 March 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This is our second visit to this superb property. Very welcoming, friendly and nothing is too much trouble for Tanya, the owner. The cottage is immaculate with everything to a very high standard. Cleanliness and comfort exceed all expectations. The welcome pack and all the little extras provided are a very nice touch - we believe that she has thought of everything!

“Absolutely fantastic, idyllic with lovely owners”
Reviewed 8 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

What can I say! The property has everything you could possibly need and then some more! It is so clean and stylish. It has a tranquility about it that ensures you come away refreshed and revitalised. The area is beautiful. Open countryside yet so close to restaurants. Tanya packs a fabulous welcome pack and is such a lovely, helpful lady. Nothing is too much trouble. The hardest part about f the holiday is leaving. We will definitely be back!

“Smithy Cottage”
Reviewed 30 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had such a splendid time in this 'home from home' self-catering cottage that we have already booked an autumn visit. Tanya and Felicity have paid real attention to detail with Smithy Cottage,so that you find yourself wanting for nothing. Plus, the 'wecome pack' is a most generous treat.
Thank you xx
