“Super comfortable cottage with charming hosts”
Reviewed 26 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Extremely well provided for and well kept cottage in the Cheshire countryside. A real home away from home and the owners could not be more helpful (though very respectful of their guests' privacy). The wood fire works beautifully and made our stay even more cosy.
Highly recommended for a country escape.

We have just returned from staying at "The Old Smithy" for a 4 night stay. It is a beautiful cottage with lots of space for two people. It is very well equipped with lovely fluffy towels and comfortable bedding. We were met by Eileen who was very friendly and helpful.

There are plenty of places nearby to visit with a huge garden centre only a mile away.

Although there is WIFI it did keep dropping out depending upon whereabouts in the property you were.

Really enjoyed our stay here, lovely cottage in beautiful countryside. Great base from which to visit many tourist attractions and to enjoy good meals in the great pubs in the area.
The cottage was very clean and well cared for with the owners across the courtyard who are there to offer help and advise if needed.
We can thoroughly recommend this cottage and this location.

We couldn't recommend The Old Smithy too highly. It offers excellent, comfortable and relaxing accommodation and a really warm welcome from the owners who couldn't have done more to make our stay more enjoyable.
We have stayed in more than 40 cottages over the past years and this was up there with the best. If you're looking for style, convenience and location look no further. The Old Smithy is well placed for touring and next to two really good pubs offering very good value meals.
We will definitely be back and will recommend to all our friends and family
