The Smithy self catering cottage - Sleeps Two

The Smithy lies just across the yard from the main house and was the original Blacksmiths forge. It still retains many of the original features and blacksmiths artefacts and has made a wonderful conversion with views across the village green to Fontmell Down.

It also has its own private sitting area under a Pergola entwined with grapes and honeysuckle.

A perfect honeymoon retreat!
