Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Great location on working farm. Quiet and peaceful spot. March 2012.
  2. This is the second time of visiting The old smithy cannot recommend this cottage enough, very comfortable with a cosy real log fire and excellent and well maintained kitchen and bathroom, this is the perfect get away location if your looking for a quiet and relaxing experience. Excellent walks on the hills and pikes right on your doorstep. Feb 2012.
  3. Excellent property on a proper working farm amidst lovely scenery. The owners are friendly and accomodating and happy to let you roam around the farm and even help with the feeding of the animals, which the kids love (and the over excitable grown ups too!) The Old Smithy is beautifully warm cozy clean and has a way of making you not want to leave. The log fire is a pure joy and nothing was nicer than returning after a cold day out! If you are really lucky, there is a special little border terrier that also comes in for a warm up and a custard cream! Will definately be returning. Dec 2011.
  4. We enjoyed the cottage. It would be useful to have an empty cupboard in the kitchen for food storage. Oct 2011.
  5. The cottage was lovely, nice walks straight from the door - watch out for the owners’ border terrier though - she will follow you on walks! March 2011.
  6. Loved the proper open log fire, spent a lot of time reading and dozing on the very comfortable sofas, took trips to nearby Penrith as well s to Keswick, Honister and Windermere so enjoyed amazing scenery despite the (very) low cloud. Perfect place just to chill out and escape for a few days. Everything extremely comfortable and well provisioned. Will definitely visit again. March 2011.
  7. Although the cottage is on a (working farm) it is still clean and tidy. The cottage is very cosy and well equipped. Feb 2011.
