The Smithy

Shades of London stone and terracotta depict this picture perfect cottage which was once a working smithy for Crookham Eastfield farm.

In its beautiful and private rural setting amidst rolling fields of corn, this charming little cottage is an idyllic romantic hideaway at any time of the year. There are footpaths direct from the door, you can walk to the local pub over the fields or for a longer ramble make your way up to the famous Flodden Battlefield.

Inside, beneath original beamed ceilings, there is a great feeling of space and light, and yet of cosiness too. A comfortable tobacco leather sofa sits beside the original forge fireplace in the oak floored, living space. The Smithy comes complete with well equipped artisan kitchen, state of the art shower room and a heavenly bedroom with twin bed option.

This retreat is inspirational in its peaceful, sleepy welcome for a couple or single holiday maker who wish to take time out to gaze over the tranquil Northumbrian landscape or equally those eager to get out and explore all the area has to offer.
