Lovely, character cottage in picturesque village. Great location for visiting Cotswolds, Warwick Castle, Stratford upon Avon. Well equipped, warm with plenty of Dvds/ CDs for any rainy days. Garden totally secure for visiting dogs. Owners very friendly and welcoming. Really enjoyed our stay, would highly recommend.

“A hidden treasure”
Reviewed November 1, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We were all very impressed with the quality and charm of the cottage. It's spacious, well equipped and felt far from the generic rental place I've experienced before. The beds were very comfy, it's incredibly quiet and we arrived to a home baked cake, bottle of wine and the house being warm and cosy.

I would strongly recommend to anyone. Not much in the way of food/restaurants nearby, but we went to a pub which was about a 10 minute drive and cooked - it's a well equipped kitchen with lots of extras like salt, pepper etc.

We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay; we’ve tried to include things we’ve liked when staying in holiday cottages ourselves. Our ‘local’ is between landlords at the moment, but we’re hopeful they’ll be up and running and serving food again before long!

“Fantastic mid week break!”
Reviewed October 30, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had a fantastic time in The Old Smithy and highly recommend this as a place to stay in this area. The cottage was authentic and well designed with all the mod-cons while still retaining original features.

The location was perfect, half an hour or so to all the places we wanted to visit, Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa and Warwich Castle. The village is perfect for afternoon strolls with the dog, very pretty.

Finally, the multi-media collection was amazing, we needed more time there to catch up on some of the box-sets...

Thank you for a lovely stay.

Good central location. We visited Kenilworth and Compton Verney. Very good conversion, all on one level, comfortable and very quiet. Martin (the owner) friendly and welcoming. Wine, free range eggs, and milk provided, as well as delicious cake. Amazing CD/DVD collection.

“Quiet, central retreat”
Reviewed June 3, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Fantastic cottage in a very central location. Martin the owner came to see us as soon as we arrived to help us settle in. There was a bottle of wine, 4 pints of milk and the most delicious Lemon Drizzle cake waiting for us. The cottage has fantastic facilities, everything that we needed in the kitchen and the most amazing CD and DVD collection at our disposal. We visited Oxford a 50 min drive, Warwick castle 30 mins, Leamington Spa 30mins and Stratford-upon-Avon 40 mins. The garden and outside areas were lovely and the local pub is less than 1 minute walk with it's beer garden near the cottage. We were never disturbed by the noise. We had a fantastic holiday and would certainly recommend The Smithy to anyone.
