    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

    We had a great time at the Smithy - we love walking and cycling and open access to the moor is just down the road from the cottage. We had five days at the Smithy and went walking or cycling from the cottage door on 4 of the 5 days! The cottage is warm, comfortable and well-equipped and the friendly and helpful owners live just up the road if you need them. Good shops in Okehampton and Tavistock for all supplies. We hope to return.

    We spent a lovely week at The Smithy 2 weeks ago and were very lucky with the weather as the cottage is right on the edge of the moor. The owners were just so nice - friendly, welcoming and helpful. We couldn't have asked for more!! If you want a charming cottage to spend some peaceful time in then go to The Smithy! That's why people keep on going back.

    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.
