Gardens with BBQ shared. Fishing on-site. Private parking for 2 cars. This delightful cottage lies in the picturesque Ithon Valley conveniently situated on the A483 allowing access into the heart of this unspoilt region. Originally built in the 19th century this tasteful refurbishment retains much original character and feel of this tranquil setting whilst providing all modern amenities. The Old Smithy has a very large kitchen and dining room with a farmhouse table as well as a conservatory overlooking the river. This property is brilliant for the model railway enthusiast as the onwer had built their own model railway in a 100ft x 30ft building in the grounds. The shared gardens extend 200 yards along the riverbank where guests enjoy private fishing rights. Otters a kingfisher and other wildlife often visit the garden. The river is fenced but at certain times can be fast flowing - care should be taken with small children. Shop and pub 2 miles." https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/123/840/123691.jpg 14268

    The old smithy is a Fabulous cottage, at the end of a row of cottages, yes it is located on a main road which some may have a problem with the traffic noise. That said we still found it to be a place of peace and tranquility at this location. Peter the very friendly owner is there to greet you on arrival, gives you a complete guided tour of the cottage and garden and how things work, nothing was ever too much trouble. Sitting in the conservatory watching the river in your garden and birds visiting the feeders daily, what’s not to enjoy.

    Cosy retreat, well equipped with a peaceful and scenic enclosed garden which the dogs loved. A busy road runs past the cottage which we didn’t have a problem with and it gave us good access to all parts of Wales, local attractions such as Elan Valley and the coast. Some good walks also start at the cottage, the owner was very helpful with directions as the local signposting is not too good. We would visit again as there is still so much to see and the accommodation good value for money.

    Lovely retreat, great views of river and birds. Flys a nusiance. Road dangerous because of dog. Owner very helpful. We will return. Cottage very well equipped with good quality pots pans and everything needed for your holiday.

    A lovely cottage with a beautiful garden. Very clean and comfortable. It is in a good location to travel out from to many areas of Wales. The are some great walks very close by as well. As a family we really enjoyed our stay.

    Location literally on the A483 which is a 60 mile an hour road, not the busiest but can be noisy and a concern with a child and a dog. The cottage felt a bit damp but next to a river in Wales, I guess cannot be helped. There was a problem with the shower going cold and stopping if taps were on downstairs. Peter, the owner, was unable to fix it but was very apologetic. The kitchen was well equipped and cottage clean and tidy. Overall, Peter was very helpful and being next to the river was very pretty, we saw Kingfishers everyday, but the cottage is in need of a bit of a makeover.

    Lovely cottage, spotlessly clean, however location although on a main road is quite remote. Difficult to find nearby places to walk dogs.

    Such a beautiful and cosy cottage. We had the most amazing time on our weekend stay. The garden was picturesque, honestly it would be impossible not to feel calmed and happy sitting there in the sunshine. Our dogs absolutely loved the garden and Denzil Our chocolate lab was thrilled about having his own stream to play in! Lovely walks close by! Make sure you arrive well stocked with all you need (milk, tea/coffee, sugar, shower gels, toothpaste etc.) As the nearest shop is a good distance away. Also we struggled on a Sunday evening to find any pubs that were open and serving food. The only one was the LLanarch Arms which was brill but a good drive away. Overall we had a brilliant time and would highly recommend!
