About the property

The Smithy is a cosy cottage with a courtyard garden situated in a rural hamlet a few hundred yards from the Mortimer Trail and on the edge of the ancient Mortimer Forest. Close to the beautiful market towns of Ludlow and and Leominster and an easy drive to Hereford or Hay on Wye. Edward IV is reputed to have had his horses shod here. Wonderful walking for people and their dogs (which we welcome).

Comfortable, cosy and ideal for a couple to get away from the busy world and relax. Everything you need for a short or longer break in the heart of a beautiful area ideal for exploration. Walk, drive, whatever takes your fancy.

A beautiful and well equipped cottage perfect for couples

  • 5 of 5

This is an idyllic setting, rural location with plenty of country walks and nearby Leominster for your essentials. The Smithy is owned by the lovely Philippa and Warren who were very welcoming to us and gave us lots of advice about the locality and even brought round a stash of DVDs when the WiFi was disrupted. The Smithy is lovely, well equipped kitchen, bathroom and a gorgeous wood burner which we and our dog adored. If you are seeking a pleasant country break in a sleepy village location this is for you. Local pubs are superb and foodies can’t miss a trip to Ludlow. We also went to Hereford and bridgenorth for the Severn Valley railway all within easy reach. Thankyou to Phillipa and the doggies !

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very welcoming hosts and lots of things to see and do locally. A very well equipped and cosy cottage. Great for dogs too as Croft Castle is close and the walks there are fabulous. Our Labrador knows when we pull into the car park there that a swim is coming up!

Lovely cottage in a quiet peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Dog friendly cottage in a great location, 20 minutes from Ludlow and close to Leominster. Nice touches like flowers from the courtyard garden on the dining table with a pot of marmalade, teabags were provided and we found milk in the fridge, perfect after a long journey. Very helpful owners live next door, had a lovely surprise of fresh eggs delivered the day after our arrival. Kitchen is well equipped, and the lounge is comfortably furnished, larger than expected due to the layout. The bedroom was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. Lots of books and dvds to keep you entertained, the weather was sunny so we didn't get to try the wood burner but can imagine it being a lovely snug room during colder days. Would loved to have stayed for longer as the weekend went too quick, our two dogs loved it and didn't want to come home. Definitely a cottage we will be revisiting!
