I cannot recommend the Smithy highly enough! We stayed for 4nts and it was perfect for our family of 4 with 2 younger children. It is in a great location in a quiet side street. The cottage provides a parking permit for a nearby car park which we were able to park in easily. The welcoming gifts were a lovely touch and we instantly felt at home. The highchair, stairgate and travelcot were already set up for us. The cottage is done out beautifully. It is welcoming and comfortable and very spacious. The kitchen and cottage itself is fully equipped with all the usual bits you normally have to bring so that was great. It is a welcome change to stay somewhere where people have thought of everything so you don't have to worry. We have stayed in a number of places and I can honestly say for us this was the best by far. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage for a holiday in the Cotswolds and we will definitely be returning. Thank you for having us.

Thank you for the wonderful review Jemma. We're so pleased to hear that The Smithy exceeded your expectations and that your family had a relaxing stay. We very much hope to see you again sometime soon!
