  • “The property was generally clean and well presented.”

    It is situated in a lovely village. Overall we had a good time. We note the roof on the adjacent barn has collapsed, which is different to the image to advertise the property. This provides a negative impression on arrival. The 6pm check-in is not ideal, almost all other cottages we have booked have a 3pm check-in time. You should consider changing this. On arrival there were a number of issues with certain facilities. For example the downstairs toilet flush was broken. This was repaired very ...

    It is situated in a lovely village. Overall we had a good time. We note the roof on the adjacent barn has collapsed, which is different to the image to advertise the property. This provides a negative impression on arrival. The 6pm check-in is not ideal, almost all other cottages we have booked have a 3pm check-in time. You should consider changing this. On arrival there were a number of issues with certain facilities. For example the downstairs toilet flush was broken. This was repaired very quickly. Additionally, the downstairs toilet seat would benefit from changing, the left hand runner for the upper shelf in the dishwasher needs replacing and one of the under cupboard light bulbs in the kitchen needs replacing. I replaced another bulb in the hall. Finally there were only 3 teaspoons and 3 dessert spoons amoungst the kitchen cutlery.

The property

The Smithy, Broadwell is a true Cotswolds gem and one which we feel offers a wonderful and authentic experience in a location that is hard to beat.

As the name would suggest, The Smithy was many, many years ago the home to the village blacksmith, with his workshop tucked next door, a cottage packed with history and well known by the older locals!

In recent years the house has undergone a wholesale update but pleasingly the house retains much of the original period charm including the beams, mullion windows and a flagstone floor.

In fact the old workshop barn next door hasn't been touched, so part of the original history remains intact.

Otherwise, the building has been transformed into a beautiful and stunning home for up to 6 people, with all the modern facilities you'd expect.

Downstairs is an attractive kitchen/ diner and cosy Living Room , while upstairs across two floors are three good sized bedrooms and two modern bathrooms.

Outside is a huge garden too and altogether this top-notch cottage has plenty to offer.

All this in a wonderful village that also has an excellent pub too (about 4 mins walk!) We feel this is an exceptional holiday cottage, ideal for families or small groups - in a location that is perfect for enjoying the best of the Cotswolds region.
