We were very pleased with the cottage, it was an ideal base for our holiday. It is in a nice quiet location but was only two miles to Bridport with all necessary amenities. Would definitely visit again.

The Old Smithy was lovely, with an old, quaint feel to it. The log burner was lovely and kept us all warm and snug. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for our holiday. The Old Smithy is in a quiet area, near the town in a pretty hamlet. It was easy to find and had a good little garden and easy parking.

We have had a very enjoyable week at The Old Smithy and would both recommend this cottage and would come back again ourselves. It is very well maintained and I have no complaints at all, our holiday here was excellent.

Truly of a very high standard, this cottage must rank as the best of the best. This cottage leads the way, others should try and follow!
