Holiday Rental House
New to market (Nov 2013) The Old Smithy is set in the South Cheshire countryside across the courtyard from the owners residence. A beautifully maintained part beamed cottage ideal for 2 couples or a romantic break to get away from it all. The cottage offers a wood burning stove to cosy up to on those chilly winter evenings whilst the 'farmhouse' kitchen with its oak handcrafted units is an ideal space to share hearty breakfasts and evening meals whilst planning the many activities that the area has to offer.... Parking is in the courtyard for 2 cars. Browsing in the local historic market town of Nantwich with its coffee shops, eateries and individual shops or heading into the 'Potteries' to check out the pottery outlets to find that bargain buy.... or perhaps a day at Chester Races......New to market (Nov 2013) The Old Smithy is set in the South Cheshire countryside across the courtyard from the owners residence.
