“Could not fault anything about The Old Smithy and beautiful Garrigill”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2016

We had a truly excellent stay - the house was wonderful with everything we needed. We are already looking to book for next year! Communications with the owners was very easy and everything was catered for - would highly recommend. Garrigill is beautiful with lots to see and do around the area. The pub served a fab meal - by far the best weve eaten out at in a long long time and the beer to match! Really happy that we found The Old Smithy and will definitely be back!

Owner's reply: Hi Laura, thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed it. Paul and Angela

“Perfect for a birthday surprise”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2015

I booked this cottage for my boyfriend's birthday and it was perfect for our needs. I had arranged for us plus friends to stay there for 3 nights. The March weather (wet and windy, the week before Easter) did nothing to dampen our spirits and the first floor fire kept us lovely and cosy. Paul, the owner, was very welcoming and made us feel at home. He explained what he had done to counteract a bad review for the cottage. If you read that review, ignore it. I'm really not sure what their issue was! Between our group of 9 we were all accommodated comfortably and used the kitchen for a big brunch every day. It's a cute and quirky cottage that is great for medium-sized groups. There is no mobile phone signal but when you're away from it all why should that bother you. The pub in the village should be open now. It was due to open the week after we stayed there. Alston is about 3 miles away. It's worth a visit. And this is a truly beautiful part of England, it's worth driving around. You're not too far from the Hartside Cafe either. Makes for an excellent stop-off the day you're due to leave! Overall, this is a nice, comfy and cosy cottage.

Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed yourselves, thanks for the review. Paul and Angela
