  • Diana says:

    We absolutely loved our stay in Smithy Cottage! We were welcomed with a lovely basket of local goodies, which really warmed our hearts. It is an adorable, very clean, cheerful cottage that looks even nicer than the photos. It appears to be very recently renovated. Beds were very comfortable. It is very well furnished with newer appliances and appointed with sweet Winnie the Pooh and Beatrix Potter sketches or other animal prints appropriate with the Hawkshead area. We managed to snap the shower head when we got there and found it replaced within a couple of hours of reporting it while we were out on a hike – amazing service! In short, Smithy Cottage has everything a family would need to vacation comfortably and even enjoy outdoor dining in the front garden area. I would highly recommend staying there and would definitely stay again. The house is located at the end of a quiet road just off the main street of the village and only footsteps away from everything including the grocery store, a pub, a tea shop, cat cafe, a major hiking trail head, post office and other lovely shops. I would highly recommend staying there and would definitely stay again!
