Half way between Patterdale and Glenridding about 1\2 Mile each way, lots of nearby walks and the views are beautiful.
The cottage has clean comfortable beds (a double, twin and single), a well equipped kitchen, seperate dining area and a cosy living room both with views of the lake. The enclosed garden, with side access is perfect for wet dogs and people! A double parking space at the front of the cottage.
We were there with 2 labradors. We had a wonderful, restful, quiet week and would recommend a stay at the Old Smithy Grizedale
Even if it's just for the views and local walks
We have just been to the Old Smithy for the weekend with some friends and had a wonderful time the cottage is well situated and has marvellous views it was immaculate and had everything there that we could need especially the log burning stove perfect for a cosy night in.
The Old Smithy is a wonderful well equipped, spacious ground floor cottage.
There are thoughtful touches such as 'doggy towels and blankets' that reflect the fact that the owner is local and understands the needs of fell walkers and their companions.
Lovely to have hot water without having to wait for it to heat up and a good Wifi connection.
Within walking distance of both Patterdale and Glenridding, you are within easy reach of the fabulous Ullswater and many walks of varying demands. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing comfortable stay. We arrived in the dark so were not aware of the breath taking view that greeted us in the morning, and what a view. Ideal for those with dogs who will have a ball in this lovely peaceful cottage. The only thing wrong with our stay was that it wasn't long enough, would love to go back. Thank you for a lovely weekend.
We felt instantly at home in this clean, spacious cottage with stunning views. The cottage was well equipped with everything you could need. Ideal for us with our two daughters and dog. The girls loved playing the piano - hopefully they didn't bother the neighbours! Easy walk into the village for shops and places to eat out. Would love to return.
