Great cottage, 8 - 12 miles from Coniston and Bowness via the the ferry. And Hawkshead. In the middle of Grizedale - great walks. Quiet and peaceful garden next to a stream. Well recommended.

Smithy Cottage was, by far, the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in! The cottage was in a a word, perfect! It is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, totally in tune with local history and the area, with so many lovely touches and yet it's comfortable and a joy to relax in. There was nothing that hadn't been considered - the facilities were amazing: the furniture, bedding, linen, crockery, cutlery, kitchenware and the appliances were high-quality. The garden is a brilliant space to breakfast or have an aperitif in the evening with the beck babbling past at the bottom. Our dog was safe and happy too - he was even left his own bowls and bones to enjoy! Communication before we arrived was excellent and information in the cottage was first-rate. Thank you so much for providing us with such an amazing stay ... loved, loved, loved it!
