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....

Management response:

We’re so pleased you enjoyed your stay; we’ve tried to include things we’ve liked when staying in holiday cottages ourselves. Our ‘local’ is between landlords at the moment, but we’re hopeful they’ll be up and running and serving food again before long!

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....

About the neighbourhood
Close to the cottage are Draycote water for sailing (8 miles), Hellidon Lakes golf course (1 mile), Burton Dassett hills (scene of English civil war battle of Edgehill) (10 miles). There's plenty of good walks from the cottage across the fields and through the lovely village of Priors Marston. Fishing is also available just a couple of miles away.

A few yards from The Old Smithy is the excellent village pub, The Hollybush - good food and beers. Just a couple of miles away is the renowned Butchers Arms, in our sister village, Priors Hardwick.
