“Beautiful home!”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We were lucky enough to stay at this lovely cottage, booking was very easy direct with Colin, he was very helpful. We arrived to a lovely welcome of wine and biscuits ( with our name on, nice touch!)
The cottage was perfect for the six of us, spotless, very well equipped and in a great location. The local pub was brilliant which always helps, we tried the local hotel and did not consider the steaks to be either good quality and were quite pricey. The pub though is great in every way.
The cottage was just what we wanted, had some great nights playing board games around the kitchen table, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped, if you wanted to cook, we managed bacon and sausage in the morning but if we had wanted to, everything would be at hand.
We had a little problem with damp but Colin made us fully aware of the issue and is sorting the problem out so no need to worry .
I would recommend this great house and thank you Colin and your wife for all the little extras that make all the difference.

“‘’A delightful property equipped to a high standard in a prime location’’”
Reviewed February 26, 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We returned to the immaculate Smithy House, for the fourth time, for a short break and again had a great stay.
Booking through the owners is effortless and they kindly arranged for the heating to be on for our arrival providing a warm cosy welcome (the complimentary home-made jam helped too)
While it can sleep 8 it still has the cosy feel thanks to the way the owners have tastefully decorated and furnished it with their personal touches making it ideal for week-ends, short breaks, or longer holidays.
We enjoy lighting the log fire with the plentiful supply of ready cut logs and kindling. There are other complimentary items such as tea, coffee, hot choc. dishwasher tabs, toiletries etc. along with the Wi-Fi (if you can’t do without it), and even food for the birds and squirrels.
The Village has lots of amenities such as pub, hotel, shop, farm shop and tea rooms, all within a stroll and Penrith along with the northern lakes are a short drive away (or if you are feeling energetic there are 2 mountain bikes in the garden shed).
We have no hesitation in recommending this property and would hope to return ourselves in the future.
