The location is ideal. It is opposite the Raeghead Centre and close to Penrith town centre for amenities while being far enough away to feel you have escaped from the daily hustle and bustle.
Our family stay here every year and everytime we pull up outside the gates we immediately feel at home.
Our time there usually starts with a visit to the local pub for our evening meal before coming back to retire in front of a roaring log burner. Who could ask for more?!
The pub is everything you would expect from a small local pub, cosy, friendly and the meals are fantastic. Not badly priced either. It is a two minute walk from the cottage and well worth a visit. I have not been to the nearby hotel but I have had good reports about that too.
The house is a very short drive away from Ullsawater Lake and Pooley Bridge and it is just off the main road so very accessible for other vistor attractions in the Lakes. For us, a visit to the market in Keswick and a whole host of amazing walks for all from beginners to keen walkers.
The slipper bath in the downstairs bedroom is a real luxury especially after being on your feet all day! Add that to a complimentary tipple from the owners and all is well with the world.
The wonderful range in the kitchen brings extra warmth on the cold nights and the kitchen is a pleasure to cook in.
There are also board games aplenty if you do not fancy watching television.
For us Smithy House is a real treat. Quality family time in the lap of luxury, Definitely recommend. Can't wait for our next visit!
