To ensure that you enjoy the unique character of the cottage, we have left many of our treasured possessions, books and games for your enjoyment.

Old Smiddy Lounge

The original blacksmith's shop is now our large comfortable lounge with old beams where you can relax in front of the open inglenook log fire. ...Listen to the fire crackle and smell the wood smoke, or dine by candlelight at the antique oak table.

In the corner by the fire are the old bellows and smithy tools. The horse shoes and horse brasses are a reminder of days gone by. There is a hi-fi and we have left our books and games for your entertainment.

Old Smiddy Cosy Room

Sit by the log burner. Read a book, watch TV, discuss the days events, plan for tomorrow or just relax.
