Very Good


Reviewed 27 Nov 2016

What a delightful piece of the country side! Perfect location to recharge our batteries! Wonderful scenery and peaceful vibe all round! We will definitely be returning! My dog loved it too!

“A truly relaxing location”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2016

A relaxing location, wonderful unspoilt views across that Tamar valley. Navigating the final approach and departure is a little tortuous but that only adds to the charm.

“Relaxing break in stunning location”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2015

The Smithy is an absolutely perfect spot to enjoy stunning views, gentle walks and a sense of seclusion. The property is very comfortable, well-furnished, quiet and ideal for a couple wishing to get away from it all (possibly with an energetic dog to exercise). We stayed with our two young kids which put indoor space at a bit of a premium, but we spent so much time outdoors enjoying fascinating local walks (some of which led direct from the property) that this wasn't a problem. It also has the bonus of being a 15-minute stroll from Calstock allowing the opportunity for a star/torchlit amble home after an evening in the pub.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your Trip Advisor review. It's good to know that guests find the cottage very comfortable and the area fascinating - we're delighted you enjoyed your stay and your star-lit walks home from the pub!

“Amazing Location”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2015

We had a fantastic stay at The Smithy. The view is simply amazing, looking over the River Tamar. Even though The Smithy is small has everything you need and was furnished lovely. Nick was very helpful, and the remains of Okel Tor Mine were very interesting and easily accessible. We enjoying sitting on the veranda just enjoying the silence and the changing landscape.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your recent review of The Smithy. We're pleased that you appreciated the cottage furnishings, the views, tranquility and mine ruins, and had everything that you needed. We hope to see you again!

“Wonderful peaceful hideaway”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2015

The Smithy is a wonderful get-away-from-it-all place but with pubs, shops and amenities only a short walk away in Calstock. The views are simply stunning and despite the (relative) proximity of the other cottage and owner's house, The Smithy feels very private and secluded. The verandah offers great shade when it's sunny and shelter when it rains (both of which it did when we were there!). There are some lovely walks right from your door and it's great for dogs. There's lots to do around the Tamar Valley and further afield. We will definitely return.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review of The Smithy. We're delighted to hear that you appreciated the views, feeling of seclusion and proximity of the village. We're also pleased that the verandah came in useful! We look forward to welcoming you back!

“Stunning cottage and location”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2015

Tucked away down a bridle path is this lovely cottage, set in a stunning location. Ideal for both the north or south coasts. Never short of places to see! Breakfast outside taking in the wonderful views, very relaxing.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review. We're pleased to hear you loved the cottage and location, and enjoyed having breakfast on the verandah whilst taking in the views! We hope to see you again.

“Relaxing and Peaceful Holiday”

Reviewed 4 Aug 2015

A quirky holiday hideaway, but with everything you need. The interior is clean and tastefully decorated with those added extras that make all the difference. Its in beautiful secluded surroundings but within a 10 minute stroll of the local village and pubs, both of which serve lovely food. There are plenty of lovely walks nearby. Easily drivable to both north and south coast beaches or nearby country homes or gardens. Had a lovely time and will go back.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your recent review of The Smithy. We're pleased you had a relaxing and peaceful holiday, appreciated the cottage decor and enjoyed the local walks and pubs. We look forward to welcoming you back!

“A beautiful peaceful hideaway overlooking the River Tamar”

Reviewed 18 Feb 2015

A magical location on the wooded banks of the Tamar. It's a beautiful spot, and with only the owner Nick, and the small Count House for neighbours, it is a peaceful place to be. Well organised, clear and prompt communication when booking. The Smithy was furnished to a high spec, with everything you need from logs for the burner, to a local books, to a fully equipped kitchen. Would certainly recommend a visit.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review and kind recommendation. We're pleased to hear that you had everything you needed for an enjoyable and peaceful stay.

“Perfect venue in a beautiful, peacfull location.”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2015

We'd really been looking forward to our week away for some time and could not have been more delighted when we arrived at The Smithy. It was stylish and comfortable with real thought having been put into creating the perfect getaway for anyone staying. Arriving in the dark meant that waking up the next morning to discover the wonderful views was an added bonus. Lots of great walks with our dog Eric and only a 10min stroll from the local village with shops and 2 pubs meant not using the car for a few days was perfectly do-able. The friendly relaxed atmosphere created by the owner Nick makes you feel completely at ease and we really look forward to returning again hopefully this year.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your Trip Advisor review and lovely comments about The Smithy. We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay with your dog Eric and we look forward to welcoming you back!


Reviewed 3 Dec 2014

This was our second visit, It is really amazing, relaxing & beautiful. We took our friends the second time & they couldn’t believe how beautiful it really was. The firework were amazing as well, that made the weekend even more special. We will be returning soon as we love it at the Okel Tor Mine

Owner's reply: A belated thank you for your review. We're delighted to hear that your friends enjoyed their stay too, and we look forward to seeing you again in November!
