The Smiddy Reviews
5 star reviewVery comfortable and had everything we needed and in a beautiful area.Thank you for taking time to leave a review, the owner and cleaner do take pride in the cottage and will be pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the Smiddy
5 star reviewGood cottage in a nice location. Cottage well equipped and clean. Only one small issue is the bin collection information as the bin men didn't empty the wheelie bin just the recycling bins (of which one had no lid and one was missing looking at the neighbours bins) Better info in the cottage would help.Many thanks for your comments. We believe refuse and recycling collection are done on alternate weeks at The Smiddy but we will certainly pass on your comments to the owners.
