“England at it's best.”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

A very comfortable and cosy cottage, where we were made very welcome and given all the help and advice necessary. Martins advice to try the Long Itchington Diner for breakfast on our first day was perfect. we were not hungry again until the evening, which gave us plenty of time to explore and stock up the larder.
Prior Marsden, where "The Old Smithy" is situated, shows the best of England and with "The Holly Bush" pub just round the corner, things couldn't be better. Even my mother (85yrs, with walking frame on wheels) was impressed.

“We had a fantastic week staying at the Old Smithy in Priors Marsden.”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The Old Smithy in Priors Marsden was the perfect base for exploring the South Warwickshire Countryside. The property itself has been lovingly restored and has been finished to a very high standard. The facilities are excellent and it was great to be able to sit outside in the garden to enjoy the evening sunshine. Priors Marsden is a lovely village and the close proximity of the Old Smithy to the village pub (The Hollybush Inn) is a huge bonus, good atmosphere, great food and a short walk home.
