    Lovely stay, very relaxing, comfy sofa and bed, nearby pub is great and very friendly although limited opening hours, lots of walks and very generous welcome basket and homemade jam. Just what we wanted :)



    out of 10

    The cottage certainly enhanced our visit to the area, but it was a shame that a) the weather did not help and b) we had to cut short our visit. The cottage was enjoyable, comfortable, well equipped (although we did not use all of it and had meals out)



    out of 10

    Had a fabulous holiday with a very warm welcome and some lovely goodies left as a gift. Would highly recommend to everyone and would definitely stay here again

    This the best holiday cottage we have stayed in and we have stayed in many. Owners have equipped it for total comfort and relaxation. Little touches of toiletries and jam and milk, plus books and dvds were wonderful. Such a peaceful location with a great pub 2 minutes walk. But then only half an hour from Ashford terminal. We went to Brussels, 90 mins on train. Have already recommended and will be back as we plan another Euro star trip next year and this is a perfect base.



    out of 10

    We had an enjoyable quiet week away at The Smithy. The cottage was warm and the woodburner was lovely to put on in the evenings. The local pub was friendly and the food excellent. If you want a break away from it all, but within 20 minutes of 'civilisation' this would be an ideal place to stay.
