Well, what can I say! From the moment that we pulled up outside Smithy Cottage, we all knew that we were going to enjoy our stay here. When we opened the door and stepped inside we were not disappointed. The cottage is very well presented, with a very well equipped kitchen, complete with a very thoughtful welcome pack, very comfortable living room, and a good spacious toilet/showeroom.
Up stairs are two very comfortable bedrooms with Velux windows providing lovely views across the fields to hills in the distance.
We met owners Karen and Alan who are lovely, friendly and welcoming hosts, where nothing was any trouble.
We spent two weeks at Smithy Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was spotlessly clean throughout and although pets are permitted to stay, we would never have known. There were no tell tale signs or smells, a real credit to other users and to Karen and Alan. A truly lovely location to chill out and relax, and an ideal base for travelling and exploring around the area. I would have no hesitation in recommending Smithy Cottage to anyone, and hope to visit again.
We went to The Gatsby for my sister’s hen weekend.
We potentially had 24 people that could come so we needed a lodge that could take us all. Unfortunately that number dropped down to 17. On the plus side though, it meant those who came on their own didn’t need to share a bedroom with a stranger as Alex kindly made up all of the rooms for our stay.
The lodge was absolutely stunning and immaculate. It was well equipped with everything that we required. The only issue we had was that we kept running out of clean tea spoons because everyone used them at breakfast and then we needed them again for afternoon tea.
The beds were very comfy and big enough for those who were sharing.
The site says that there is only 6 car parking spaces however we fitted in 9 at least with space still to manoeuvre. There is space round the side of the lodge to park as well as in the front.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay and I think we were all sad to leave such a beautiful house!
