Location description from owner

The England region

The Old Smithy is well located for exploring the South Warwickshire area, including the north Cotswolds. Attractions include historic Stratford-upon-Avon (30 mins drive away), Warwick castle (25 mins), Royal Leamington Spa - a lovely regency town with excellent shopping, cafes and restaurants (25 mins drive)

Southam

Close to the cottage are Draycote water for sailing (8 miles), Hellidon Lakes golf course (1 mile), Burton Dassett hills (scene of English civil war battle of Edgehill) (10 miles). There's plenty of good walks from the cottage across the fields and through the lovely village of Priors Marston. Fishing is also available just a couple of miles away.

A few yards from The Old Smithy is the excellent village pub, The Hollybush - good food and beers. Just a couple of miles away is the renowned Butchers Arms, in our sister village, Priors Hardwick.

“Fantastic in every way!”

Reviewed 26 Apr 2017

This has to be one of the best self catering properties I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in quite a few!! Lovely setting with private, sunny garden opening into the large and very comfortable living space tastefully decorated.Lots of quirky features that add to the appeal of the property. Very welcome wine and delicious cake(baked by the owner's daughter) on arrival! The village was charming and perfectly placed to explore the surrounding area including places like Warwick, Oxford, Stratford. I can recommend this property wholeheartedly and intend to return for another visit!

Owner's reply: Wow, what a lovely review; we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay. You're welcome back any time..

“Comfortable and warm welcome”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2017

Long term stay (almost a month). We were made most welcome by Martin and Snowy. Our dogs loved the available local walks. The nearby local amenities are very good, but the lemon drizzle cake made by Martin's daughter was an even bigger success. Shame about the pub, The Hollybush. We will come again.

Owner's reply: We're glad you enjoyed your stay; hope to see you again! The Hollybush is up and running again with a new landlord - fingers crossed..

“Stunning cottage, beautiful surroundings, A+.”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2016

I booked the cottage for myself, my husband & my parents. My father and husband had tickets for the British Grand Prix. Silverstone was about 20-30 mins away and the cottage looked lovely. We originally booked for the end of June and then the Grand Prix dates were changed....nightmere!! However the cottage was available for the new dates, I rang and spoke to owner Martin and he was only too happy to accommodate. It took a lot of sorting due to holiday lettings, but Martin was great and we eventually got it sorted. A week before our arrival Martin (the owner) e-mail over some extra information for our stay - directions to get there, local amenities and places of interest - very thoughtful and extremely useful. Now to the stay The cottage is open plan, stone floor with high ceilings and can feel a bit chilly at times. However there is a combi boiler to warm the house, a woodbuner (which we did not need to use) and the owners have also provided a fan heater for instant heat and a number of heat packs to warm in the microwave if need be. We stayed in summer ... but bet the cottage would be lovely and toasty in winter. The cottage is beautifully decorated with everything you could possibly need - dishwasher, washer/dryer, maiden, iron, ironing board, hairdyer, 3 TV's, DVD player, music system, game console, coffee machine, bookcases full of books, cd's & dvd's. With nothing done on the cheap!! The owners provided coffee for the machine, washing powder, dishwasher tablets, some food bits and bobs, a bottle of white wine, milk and a stunning home made cake for when we arrived. The owners ask you to bring your own towels, which I thought was a bit of a pain, until I saw what they do provide and taking my own towels pailed into insignificance. The garden/patio area is lovely, very secluded and private. It has a table and chairs for alfresco dinning but also has comfy patio furniture with cushions stored in your own shed. The owners must be into their music as the cottage had a good sound system, hundreds if not thousands of CD's and music artwork on the walls. The local pub is just out the driveway and around the corner- 2mins walk away. The menu was quite limited but the food was superb. Good quality, locally sourced food, cooked well and served with a smile. It wasn't cheap bar food and the prices reflected the quality. We ate there three nights out of our seven night stay. Southam is about a 20min drive away, a small town with a tesco, a lovely chippy, curry takeaway and two chinese takeaways - also a Greek restaurant we never got around to trying. Great location as very close to Lemington Spa, Warwick, Banbury and Stratford-upon-avon. The owners have put a wi-fi router in the cottage, however they don't advertise the cottage as having wi-fi as the signal is not great and it keeps dropping in and out. But it is there and does work for short bursts. It was a lovely cottage and a stunning holiday, would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.

Owner's reply: Wow! What a great review! Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a lovely report. I'm sure Lewis Hamilton winning the GP added to the enjoyment of your stay, but I sadly can't take any credit for that! Thanks again
