We really enjoyed our stay at Smithy Cottage. The location for our requirements was excellent, as some of the party wanted to climb mountains and some wanted to stay local. All the facilities at the cottage were excellent.
We had a meal at the pub down the road which again was excellent, and would certainly recommend this.
We are pleased you enjoyed your stay at the property and took advantage of the location of the property.
Thank you for recommending Smithy Cottage and Lakes Cottage Holidays hopes to welcome you back in the near future.

We had a lovely holiday staying at this cottage,spacious with private garden(despite the weather). The local pub served very nice food although probably more expensive than further afield. Good location for getting to most areas
Just a couple of niggles...No towels are provided and there is only one tiny wardrobe in the master bedroom, no others at all!
