How lucky we were to stumble across this B&B. We visited the weekend between Christmas and New Year 2014 and felt like we were staying with friends! We were warmly greeted on our arrival and shown to our rooms which were spotlessly clean and very spacious. Breakfast was a delight with a wide range of options to please everyone and... More

My husband and I stayed at Smithy Cottage on the 31st May 2014 we went to a wedding which was very local and booked without checking any reviews online. We were pleasantly surprised, we received such a warm welcome, our room was so beautiful, so clean and with a massive bathroom the bedroom was large too and talking about cleanliness... More

We can think of absolutely nothing negative at all to say about this place and recommend it 110%. It was spotlessly clean, rooms spacious with comfy bed, amazing spa bath, fantastic after a long days walking around Ullswater. The shower was also powerful and hot. Lovely breakfast served in the conservatory and super friendly people. We will be back.

Beautiful bed and breakfast. Our room was lovely, with a huge bathroom and with views across the countryside. The owners were welcoming and helpful. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in the area..

We received a warm welcome by the friendly and attentive owners, our room was spotlessly clean, large and airy with great views across open countryside. The room was well appointed with a large and very comfortable bed, an amazing bathroom with a spa bath and separate powerful shower. Breakfast was in a large conservatory and we were offered a range... More

We stayed here last year doing a mini tour of England / the Lake District and loved it so much we decided to stay again while doing a mini tour of the north of England. A lovely B&B, with a genuinely friendly and warm welcome. Very handy place to break up a long journey to / from the Stranraer ferry.

We (2 women) came over from Germany to spend a 10 day holiday at the Smithy Cottage because of the Potfests. The best choice we ever could have made. A wonderful room with comfortable and fantastic twin beds, a very luxury bathroom and every day a delicious breakfast freshly made. The family is very friendly and caring. Highly recommended -...

We've just had a 2 week 'staycation' all over England. This was without a doubt the best B&B we stayed in, and outshone a few of the hotels too. Not the chepaest place we stayed, but beautiful room, comfortable bed and fantastic bathroom made it worthwhile. Don't want to give too many details in case it spoils the experience of... More

This is as close to the perfect B&B as you can get: lovely house, beautiful, quiet room, superb bed, luxurious bathroom, all immaculately clean and classy, delightful but non-intrusive family and delicious freshly cooked breakfast with plenty of choice. Ideally placed for stopping off while travelling by car and the recommendation for food at a nearby inn was sound -... More
