4Self Classified Bed and Breakfast Ratings explained
Smithy Cottage Unthank,, Penrith, CA11 9TG
A very warm welcome awaits you at Smithy Cottage, luxurious B & B accommodation in the Eden Valley close to the Lake District National Park.

Smithy Cottage is ideally located to explore the breathtaking views and the activities that Cumbria has to offer. Easy access to lakes, mountains, coast and countryside make it an ideal location for a relaxing break.

Enjoy a relaxing stay in a traditional sandstone Cumbrian home fitted with modern comforts. Our bedrooms are large and light with underfloor heating, flat screen TV with freeserve, well stocked hospitality trays and hairdryers. Our en-suite bathrooms have power showers and a spa bath. Take advantage of the large sauna room which is available for your private use or simply relax in the comfortable lounge, conservatory or garden.

Smithy cottage is only five minutes from the M6 motorway, making it an ideal stopover when travelling into the borders and Scotland.

We welcome walkers and cyclists and can provide tailor made services such as packed lunches, drying boots and clothing and locked storage for bikes. By prior arrangement we can provide a pick-up / drop-off service from main line railway and bus stations at nearby Penrith or Carlisle and also to and from local restaurants and hostelries.

For cyclists doing the Coast 2 Coast cycle route, Smithy Cottage is close to the official route being only 2 miles along a flat road. Our accommodation is ideal for those needing special pampering at the start or end of a challenging days cycling.

Breakfast
The only thing that i can fault Smithy's Cottage on is having no beans served with breakfast. Thought this was very unusual as most English Full Cooked Breakfasts come with beans.

A steller stay: Five Stars are not sufficient to describe this wonderful B & B.
Everything about this lovely cottage spelt quality and care. From a courteous welcome to a personal goodbye our stay at Smithy Cottage was a delightful ingredient in an altogether wonderful weekend. Our room and bathroom (replete with bath and the most powerful shower this side of the Atlantic!), were spacious, immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, extraordinarily comfortable, and fully equipped with TV, Coffee & Tea making facilities, hairdryer etc. Breakfast was 'full' English in every sense of the word, and the service we received was efficient and personal. We cannot praise this beautiful place and its gracious owners too highly. Thank you.

B&B is in a lovely countryside setting, in a converted farmhouse. Very clean and comfortable room with a massive superking bed.
The hosts were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was delicious.
Would definitely stay here again.

You'll enjoy a lovely time at Smithy Cottage, hosts, rooms & views are stunning, will be going back.
For the price & standards that you get at Smithy Cottage, you'll have a bargain. The rooms are to a very high standard & breakfast is lovely. The views are stunning & very peaceful. And you'll get a lovely welcome when you arrive. Can't fault it!! Will be returning next year.
