    • “Beautiful cottage with everything you could wish for to make your stay comfortable, set in very picturesque countryside.”

    Mrs Barradell, Melton Mowbray, November 2018

    • “Apart from the very comfortable accommodation, the surrounding area was simply stunning. We had not been to this part of Devon before but very much want to return. The owners of the Old Smithy were lovely people and nothing was too much trouble.”

    Mrs Jinks, BROMYARD, October 2018

    • “Exceptional property: Very tasteful interior decor; well equipped kitchen, thoughful touches eg arrival cake; idyllic setting and friendly, yet unintrusive, hosts. Highly recommended.”

    Ms Allen Bray, Waterlooville, October 2018

    • “A very comfortable, clean and well appointed cottage in a small Devonian village with rural views from the cottage windows. A lovely touch on arrival was a welcoming cake and milk to make yourself a drink. The hosts Mary and John were helpful with suggestions on things to do in the area. The lanes in this area are very narrow so take your time driving down them.”

    Mr Botterell, Deeside, October 2018

    • “Has I am having strokes now my hubby and I decided to take a trip down memory lane. We live by the sea so it was wonderful to be out in the country for a change, The old Smithy was so much better then I was expecting, being disable I managed the couple of steps in it OK. Would recommend this cottage to anyone but will explain the lane to it is rather narrow, only one lane and did get a few scratches on the car but it wouldn't stop me going there again.”

    Mrs Mills, New Romney, October 2018

    • “Lovely cottage. Very comfortable. Peaceful location. Friendly hosts. Just a welcoming place. Lots of lovely places to visit. Walks nearby.”
