  • "The Smithy was a lovely, clean, cosy and comfortable place to stay."

    A home away from home minus the clutter. A relaxing and quiet place to stay to recuperate from a major surgery.

    Thank you for the feedback, it was lovely to meet you all and glad that you enjoyed your stay. Also, thank you for the delicious home made nuts that you gifted me. We hope to see you in the future. Property Owner
