Stayed for two nights with my daughter.
Travelled to/from the Download festival on Saturday & Sunday. Helen was a great host, made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended, great alternative to chain hotels.
Prepare to be thoroughly spoilt!
From the moment I stepped into Helen's wonderful home, I knew this was just the place of retreat I needed before a long day of meetings.
The Smithy has been lovingly preserved, offering a cosy place to stay, with all the comforts of home and more. Helen's beautiful paintings add to the tranquil atmosphere. The two-storey self-contained lounge/bedroom/wet-room is sympathetically furnished, with more than enough room for two, and has everything you need for that night away. Helen's relaxed approach allows for you to come and go as you please, and she'll manage her timetable to suit yours. Breakfast is a lavish affair and will more than set you up for the day - I dare you not to be tempted by the fresh fruit compote, while your eggs and bacon are cooking. A wonderful find, with great links to Central England. I will definitely be recommending the Smithy Studio to my more worthy colleagues!
