    Resh ‐ 9 Nov 2018
    "Would love to come back."
    Susan ‐ 20 Oct 2018
    "We have been staying at this cottage for over 20 years and the friendly welcome and standard of accommodation have always been the same. It's a wonderful place for lovers of wide open countryside and is perfect for dog owners. The lack of light pollution makes for fantastic night skies. If peace and quiet and wide open spaces are your thing I would highly recommend it"
    Margo ‐ 19 Oct 2018
    "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Smithy. Sally and Christopher were available if required but were not at all intrusive. The cottage had everything we wanted except a dishwasher but that was an excellent excuse to eat out at some of the local Inns which were excellent! The woodland behind the Smithy and the garden were superb places for our dog to enjoy. Were we to return, then we would be very happy to stay at the Smithy again and I hope they'd be happy to have us."
    Sheila ‐ 23 Sep 2018
    "Lovely cosy cottage. Very friendly greeting by Sally and Christopher and a lovely welcome cream waiting. Everything there for your convenience."
    Richard ‐ 5 Sep 2018
    "We LOVED this little cottage. It's not huge, but it's perfectly adequate for two people. It's in a quiet location, down a very narrow lane and only about 100 metres from the cattle grid onto the moor. It's very clean and neat and a really nice place to stay for a few days. Sally, (the owner), has really made an effort to provide everything you could possibly want. All the things you'd expect, like a hair drier, but many you'd never expect - lots of kitchen utensils I've never seen in a rental place before - even a vacuum bottle stop and pump for half full wine bottles! If we go back to West Devon, we'll definitely stay here again."

    "The Smithy was fine for a couple, we liked the location, very quiet and superb views , no parking or garden was the the only drawback, the trees opposite make it a little dark when the suns not shining."
    Barbara ‐ 4 Aug 2018
    "Lovely accommodation in a super location for the moorsWe were made very welcome and had a cream tea waiting for us on our arrival."
    Mrs Doree ‐ 9 Jul 2018
    "The owners of the cottage could not have been more helpful and we enjoyed the cream tea on arrival. Having relatives in central Tavistock we felt too far away from them (should have taken more notice of the position of the cottage before finally booking) No local amenities was a bit of a downside to us. We thought there was a garden immediately attached to the cottage."
    Sandra ‐ 2 Jul 2018
    "Sally and Christopher very amazing hosts warm friendly nothing was too much for them . Even put out sun lounges in their garden so that we could use them .Lovely area two minute walk to The Dartmoor . The cottage even has a wooded area with a stream running through it this all belongs to Sally and Christopher brilliant for walking the dog in the summer heat ."
    Chris ‐ 8 May 2018
    "The Smithy is a small cottage but has everything you need for your stay. There are lots of extras provided, thick soft towels, hand and shower gels, there are extra heaters in all the rooms if you need them though the heating was adequate for us, there is even an electric blanket. The kitchen is very well equipped although small. We were greeted by the very friendly owners on arrival, with a cream tea and a huge bowl of flowers from their garden. The cottage is in a very quiet beautiful area, on a lane that leads onto the moor. The owners have a large beautiful garden that they encourage you to use. All in all a lovely warm comfortable cottage."

    "Beautiful isolated location, hence the score for amenities. But that was why we went, cottage was warm and spotlessly clean. Had everything you could need, proper little home from home. Hosts were welcoming and gave good suggestions for days out, would definitely recommend it to anyone."
    Angie ‐ 24 Feb 2018
    "I had a lovely weekend at The Smithy. Sally was really helpful with showing me where everything was in the cottage and how it worked before leaving me to it. The cottage has all the cooking utensils and basic necessities (e.g. washing up liquid, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, cooking oil) so you don’t have to worry about bringing them with you. Its very clean and pleasant to stay in. The location made it feel like a real break from it all. I would definitely stay there again."
    Ray ‐ 6 Jan 2018
    "We spent Christmas here and found it to be very cosy, warm and quite, just as we wanted, did not have to use the car.Walking is relatively easy with the moors adjacent within a quarter of a mile down the lane.The Smithy is well equipped and ideal for two plus a dog"
