    This is a magical location - right on the edge of Dartmoor National Park! We had a wonderful week there and would love to go again.

    Lovely cosy cottage down a very quiet single tract lane. Very welcoming owners, just 40 yds up the lane who are there if you need them but not intrusive. There isn't a garden attached to the Smithy but you are allowed to use the owner's garden & sit by their pond, with good views over the moors. They also have a field and a wooded area which you are allowed to use which was a nice bonus. Parking is beside the owner's property which is fine but you can park in a small layby opposite the Smithy just to unload cases etc. Good Wi-Fi but only mob phone reception for O2 users outside the cottage. Pay phone in village.

    Perfect spot if you're after a nice quiet relaxing holiday.Amenities just a couple of miles down the road.Beautiful location for walks.We had a lovely walk on the moors and climbed up to the top where the views were amazing.We were in the company of lots of ponies.Climbed up the hill to see Brentor church which again had good views from the top.Walk into the village of Brentor and you'll come across the "old railway station"that some-one has bought and now living in.Sally and Christopher are a lovely friendly couple.The only problem we encountered was that there was no phone signal or wi-fi.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Smithy. The owner, Christopher, was very welcoming and helpful and gave us a tour of the lovely garden with lots of useful information and tips of what to see and where to go - Chris and Sally also provided us with a cream tea on arrival which was a really nice touch. The location is perfect for getting onto the moor with only a short walk down a picturesque lane. The accommodation is small but perfectly appointed and we felt really at home in it. Thank you!

    Sally and Christopher were such lovely people, friendly, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was quaint, homely, spotlessly clean and in an ideal location for the moors. Sally & Chris's garden is beautiful to relax in to take in the view of the moors.We enjoyed a wonderfully, restful time at the cottage experiencing beautiful weather. The cottage's location enabled us to visit Port Issac(where Doc Martin is), The Eden Project, Newquay, Torquay, Padstow, Plymouth as well as some beautiful hidden gems within the area such as small hamlets and villages. Would definitely recommend it.
