    The cottage is in a great village and not far from a park! And a good location. They layout of the cottage is great. But it does need some serious TLC!

    We enjoyed the holiday as far as we could get to other locations easy. The villagers were very friendly and Mrs Tester was very welcoming the weather was excellent.

    It was not a nice place. I paid extra for my dogs and it was not dog friendly ,there was no safe place for them to be outside. The single bed was uncomfortable and the spring base rusty. The stairs to the loft room were dangerous rather than a bit steep. The cleaning left a lot to be desired . We left after 4 days having paid for a week.This is of course just my opinion and others might call it rustic and countryfied. I was truly elated to be back in my home village.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I'm so sorry the lady from Bedfordshire was uncomfortable in the Blacksmith Shop and had I realised I would have strived to improve the situation. However I looked into her comments carefully, the single bed is quite old but not rusty and has a new memory foam mattress; the stairs are steep but that is stated in the description; the house was not dirty although I did have to do some extra work on the oven glass (apologies for that); and the dogs - well, are cottage owners supposed to offer a dog run and toilet in their back garden? I thought people with dogs took them for walks and picked up after them. Dogs will continue to be welcome at the Blacksmiths Shop but please note that many owners don't allow dogs because of this kind of comment.
