Hospitality outstanding. Sally thank you for all the useful tips on dog friendly beaches and pubs. Very relaxing break, loved being so close to Dartmoor. Cream tea was a welcome surprise on our arrival after a very long drive. Hope to come back soon.

June 2013

cosy comfortable bed, quiet and tranquil, could hear the sheep bleating outside in the near field. A place to refresh the soul, away from the maddening crowds, although on a very narrow country road very little traffic passed the Smithy. Owners very kind and helpful, we had home made scones with cream and jam to greet us on arrival. The garden just yards up the road was beautiful with lovely country views, plenty of seating areas with tables. Very glad to have been there.
