We were all very impressed with the quality and charm of the cottage. It's spacious, well equipped and felt far from the generic rental place I've experienced before. The beds were very comfy, it's incredibly quiet and we arrived to a home baked cake, bottle of wine and the house being warm and cosy.
I would strongly recommend to anyone. Not much in the way of food/restaurants nearby, but we went to a pub which was about a 10 minute drive and cooked - it's a well equipped kitchen with lots of extras like salt, pepper etc.
We had a fantastic time in The Old Smithy and highly recommend this as a place to stay in this area. The cottage was authentic and well designed with all the mod-cons while still retaining original features.
The location was perfect, half an hour or so to all the places we wanted to visit, Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa and Warwich Castle. The village is perfect for afternoon strolls with the dog, very pretty.
Finally, the multi-media collection was amazing, we needed more time there to catch up on some of the box-sets...
Thank you for a lovely stay.
Good central location. We visited Kenilworth and Compton Verney. Very good conversion, all on one level, comfortable and very quiet. Martin (the owner) friendly and welcoming. Wine, free range eggs, and milk provided, as well as delicious cake. Amazing CD/DVD collection.
Great break. Owners very welcoming. Beautiful cake, good wine plus other essentials provided. Excellent choice of CD's and DVD's. Good location for visiting Warwick, Leamington spa, and Stratford upon Avon.
Fantastic cottage in a very central location. Martin the owner came to see us as soon as we arrived to help us settle in. There was a bottle of wine, 4 pints of milk and the most delicious Lemon Drizzle cake waiting for us. The cottage has fantastic facilities, everything that we needed in the kitchen and the most amazing CD and DVD collection at our disposal. We visited Oxford a 50 min drive, Warwick castle 30 mins, Leamington Spa 30mins and Stratford-upon-Avon 40 mins. The garden and outside areas were lovely and the local pub is less than 1 minute walk with it's beer garden near the cottage. We were never disturbed by the noise. We had a fantastic holiday and would certainly recommend The Smithy to anyone.
we received a warm and friendly welcome from the owners and the lemon drizzle cake,wine and milk was a nice surprise. The cottage was amazing, everything you could wish for was there, It was very comfortable and in a lovely quiete location. would definately recommend to others and would come back and stay again.
