“SIMPLY PERFECT”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

As a couple we have stayed in numerous locations throughout the UK & Ireland.
This one we would have to say was perfect in every way, one the BEST in fact.
Lovely location, very welcoming owners & pets. Everything we needed was provided and we thoroughly enjoyed the scones.
We found it great for travelling to many locations within the area and even beyond.
We would fully recommend "The old Smithy" to all.
We have had a full 10 day relaxing Holiday and have enjoyed it thoroughly.

Reviewed October 20, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The cottage is beautiful, has a brilliant host and is in a great location which allows for some good walks and is within a 5 minute stroll to the local pub.
The Old Smithy made a great relaxing break in the countryside and we wouldn't think twice about going again.

“It does what it says on the tin!!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

On arrival Phillipa the owner greeted us, very friendly and informative about the area. The Old Smithy was tatstefully decorated, the attention to detail on every level i.e. decoration, comfort and contemporary appliances was first class.
It was full of character, as were the pets, which made the holiday special. Dopey Dogs, crazy cats, and serious sheep who studied every move made in the yard.
Nothing too much trouble for the owners, but always discreet and non intrusive.
The village pub served good food and Beer. Lovely area, plenty to see and do. Beautiful local walks, plenty of peace and quiet.. Perfick.

we have just spent a fantastic weekend at this lovely conversion. Very pretty and friendly village, owners could not have been more welcoming.
Accomodation spotless with lots of lovely extra touches, furnished to a very high standard.
Ate at village pub one night would highly recommend.
Ideally situated for touring peaks, also ideal to just laze around!
