Great little studio cottage
We throughly enjoyed our stay at the old smithy, it had everything we needed although could do with some more kitchen utensils and wine glasses. It was Very comfortable and clean. The pub next door is lovely (they also own the property), good beer and very nice food. The staff are very friendly! Fantastic access for bike rides, hikes and runs. As the pub is next door, it was a little noisy at certain times, but if you go enjoy the pub then this will not be a problem! The wood burning stove is a nice touch, we had a romantic dinner in with it burning- very cosy! This is somewhere we plan on returning to! We fell in love with it.
