The Smithy - what our guests say ...

July 2024

Wonderful cosy cottage, so peaceful, letting you completely relax. The field and wood land great for the first morning walk with Alfie. Thank you for the delicious cream tea and and thank you Sally for being so warm and friendly and helpful.  Great place to stay, thoroughly recommend.

June 2024

Great accommodation for 2 people and a dog. Now that we have discovered the walk through the woods, (2nd gate downhill on the right) to the stream and back to the field we will have to come again to take maximum advantage, Can recommend the walk up to Bren Tor to the church to the church which is far less taxing than many of the guide books suggest. Nice meal in Peter Tavy Inn. Stanley (the dog) loves the field. Thanks for a wonderful week!


June 2024

Thank you for a lovely stay. Everything was perfect. The cottage is cosy and spotlessly clean and well equipped. Such a great location on Dartmoor. It was the peaceful retreat that we needed. Christopher and Sally are lovely hosts. That all added up to the perfect week. The cream tea was a lovely welcome too!

May 2024

Thank you Sally and Christopher for a lovely stay in the cosy 'Smithy'. Super relaxing week catching up with friends and family in Tavistock. Heard a cuckoo many times, 1st since I was a child!!

Apr 2024

We have had another relaxing stay at The Smithy with our wonderful hosts Sally and Christopher. Weather not the best but being prepared we were very content. Look forward to our next stay with better weather. Thank you.

Mar 2024

Another splendid week at The Smithy as before, perfect in every way. Such lovely welcoming owners: Sally and Christopher. Every provision made for a cosy, comfortable stay. Loved the location re: scenery and walks with our dog and the cottage is wonderful to relax in between outings. Loved the drift of snowdrops everywhere. Thanks for the cream tea and cream, first whilst in Devon! We will miss The Smithy.

Feb 2024

A lovely relaxing week. Perfect for the well needed break from work and day to day life!! Brilliant facilities and despite some rain, we have had chance to visit a beautiful part of the world, thank you Sally and Christopher. We have had a great time and loved the cream tea and the marmalade.

Jan 2024

Once again a lovely stay at The Smithy. Warm, snug and just perfect for our needs. Thank you Sally and Christopher.

Dec 2023

Cosy cottage to spend Christmas in. Thank you Sally and Christopher for the special touches like scones and cream! It has been a nice relaxing time, weather was trying!! Walked up to St Michael's for the Christmas service which was so special. 

Nov 2023

Dear Sally and Christopher, it has been perfect for us staying in The Smithy. We have loved staying in your cosy cottage. It has been a busy few days so this has been the perfect retreat. 

Oct 2023

Another return to a wonderful area. The Smithy, as usual, was perfect, tidy, clean and well located for my week's walking. I had the added bonus of ringing bells before the service at St Michael's. Sally was her usual energetic and helpful self. Long may my visits continue.


Sept 2023 

Enjoyed staying at The Smithy again! Wonderful location and lovely ambience all round! Thank you Sally for your advice and recommendations. Hope to see you again.

Aug 2023 

We have had the much needed rest and sound sleep we hoped for. The quiet and countryside so close to us helped restore our energy. Thank you Sally and Christopher for being so kind and attentive and we look forward to our next visit.

July 2023

Sally provided excellent information to make our stay more enjoyable. Very friendly and a good advert for the County of Devon. Mike.

June 2023

Would thoroughly recommend. Very clean and comfortable and well equipped. Well located for exploring Devon and North Cornwall. Sally and Chris very friendly and helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to book for a second visit. David.

April 2023

We stayed for a week and found The Smithy perfect for our needs, the cottage is small but has everything that we required. It is a quiet location but is just a short drive to Tavistock. The owner was helpful and friendly. We would go back if returning to the same area. Jim.
