"We have really enjoyed our first visit to The Old Smithy and Riverside Lodge. We'll definitely be back to stay again! The Old Smithy is charming home from home with everything you could need for a relaxing break. Very well equipped and comfortable. Thank you very much for the thoughtful welcome pack, it was lovely to try some local produce. A perfect weekend. See you next time! " November 2019

"Our party of 11 adults, 2 babies and a 4 year old were easily accommodated between Riverside Lodge and The Old Smithy. We had a fantastic weekend celebrating a 30th birthday. The cottages are lovely and everything we needed was provided. [Handpicked Lodges] kindly decorated Riverside Lodge with 30th decorations for our arrival. We will certainly look into a return visit. Possibly making this an annual trip. " March 2019

"The lodges were amazing and gorgeous, both inside and out - perfect for our family weekend away. Judith was so helpful in the run up to our stay and the house was well equipped with all the information we needed about the house and surrounding area." December 2018
