Everything is of the highest quality. A very warm welcome was received from owners. This cottage exceeded all my expectations. Will definitely be returning.”

    Mr Collier, Abingdon, December 2014

    • “The Smithy was a fantastic property, and we cannot find fault with it at all. It was clean, tidy, fresh and the furnishings were top class. The owners were lovely, as were their dogs - we would recommend this cottage to anyone visiting the area - the coastline was stunning and we would definitely love to visit again.”

    Mr Moore, Rushden, June 2014

    • “Wonderful setting in rolling wooded countryside. Beautifully landscaped area with a tasteful conversion of an old smithy. An ideal spot to return to, either to eat outside or inside after a day of exploration or taking in the local walks and just relax over coffee. Warm and snug with excellent heating and comfortable beds. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming. We hope to return.”

    Mr Ford, Weston-super-Mare, April 2014
