“Peaceful”
Reviewed 5 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Garrigill is a lovely, quiet, peaceful, friendly, North Pennine village. Whichever way you travel you will find wonderful scenery. The Lake District is also accessible (though if you wanted to be visiting The Lakes everyday you may want somewhere closer).
Despite the village's size there is a swimming pool, sauna and jacuzzi that can be hired very reasonably within a minutes walk from the house ( the kids loved it). There is also a local friendly bar and a small children's play area.
The village also has a little Post Office that carries most essentials. The village of Alston about 3.5 miles away has more shops. We found Penrith to be the nearest town for shopping.
It is so peaceful, well away from the hustle and bustle, a fantastic place to relax.

The Old Smithy is a lovely old house, clean, tidy, quirky and a great place for a large family group. There's plenty of space, room to spread out and it is well equipped. It is very reasonably priced.

Every contact with the owners was helpful and pleasant.

We would all recommended staying at The Old Smithy, Garrigill.

“Great getaway”
Reviewed 24 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Nine of us booked the cottage for the weekend. It is an ideal getaway if its peace and quiet you're after. The cottage itself is clean, spacious and ideally located on its own piece of land in the centre of the village. There is a small, friendly bar in St. John's Spa located about 100 yards from the cottage, where you can get a pint of reasonably priced real ale and a bite to eat. There are several walks you can take, from the short and gentle to a 4 mile walk through the valley down to Alston, where several pubs are located selling fine ales and superb food. Loved the whole experience and have already booked again for later in the year. Highly recommended.

“Fantastic getaway”
Reviewed 19 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have had a fantastic stay at this wonderful cottage. We are 1 of two families that stayed with plenty of space and bedrooms. Clean, tidy and left with simple instructions on what was nessacary to do. No signal but that is a bonus when you run your own business! Definitely recommend the 4.5 mile walk to the waterfall which we found a leaflet in the top drawer on the ground floor. Even a baby in a carrier and 2 x 3 year olds did this it was fantastic to see and do. Will definitely come again thanks Paul!
