This cottage has everything you could want. The location is peaceful with fantastic views and no-one nearby. The cottage is cosy, clean, well decorated, well equipped and furnished. Karen is very helpful, the welcome pack is one of many lovely touches and the log burner adds a that extra bit of pleasure when the weather closes in.
This is the best I have ever stayed in.
A home from home. Very nicely decorated cottage, equipped with everything I needed. The signal for the TV not so good on some channels however.
This was our 4th stay at Smithy Cottage and yet again, it was cosy, comfy, stylish and beautiful. I even proposed to my lovely Haze here, after another fabulous meal at the Kildrummy Inn. The log burning stove and candle lit cottage, with roe deer in the garden in the mist truly set the tone.
We adore this place and how Karen treats us - she delightful and she had left us a lovely bottle of fizz to help us celebrate too!
Many many thanks and we shall be back again in February at the latest.

Another fantastic week at Smithy Cottage despite the rain, warm and comfortable can't recommend this lovely place enough, visited places not been before in Alford Heritage centre and Transport museum as weather not good still plenty to do looking forward to our next visit. Lovely welcome basket just what you need after a long journey to save shopping till next day at the local co op where there is everything you need, also recommend visiting the local charity shop in Alford where there are always some unusual finds
Having stayed in quite a few pet friendly cottages you never know what to expect. Oh my goodness, I was blown away by the condition of this cottage, it is stunning. The location is in the most beautiful part of Aberdeenshire. The cottage is so well looked after. I fell in love with it totally. So clean and I loved the little hamper of goodies, so many other places I've stayed in don't even give you toilet roll! I took little videos to show my husband (he had to stay at home and work!), I have even asked for my kitchen to be like the one in the cottage.
Karen, helped me locate the supermarket and her help was invaluable. Thank you for that. I am hoping to come again and stay in Smithy Cottage as it was gorgeous.
Smithy Cottage is superbly equipped and extremely comfortable and sits in a beautiful part of Aberdeenshire. Views over the surrounding countryside are spectacular and the facilities of Alford are close at hand. Our visit was enhanced by Karen's kindly advice and attention. We were delighted that there was no problem whatsoever about taking our dog. Every part of our stay was enjoyable, peaceful and relaxing.
Amazing countryside, beautiful views, completely relaxing in very comfortable cottage. Great for any break
