The Smithy

Shades of London Stone and terracotta depict this picture perfect cottage which was once the working smithy for Crookham Eastfield Farm. In its beautiful and private rural setting amidst rolling fields, this charming little cottage is an idyllic romantic hideaway at any time of the year. With footpaths leading directly from the door, take a stroll to the local pub or for a longer ramble climb to the famous Battlefield at Flodden.

The old forge fireplace in the living room of tThe Smithy holiday cottage

Beneath the original beamed ceilings, there is a feeling of space and light yet cosiness in this little cottage. Comfortable sofas nestle around the original forge fireplace. The Smithy comes complete with well equipped artisan kitchen, state of the art shower room and a heavenly bedroom.

This retreat offers a peaceful welcome for a couple or single holiday maker wishing 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. Book this together with No 9 for larger parties.

“Had the most wonderful holiday, walking in the Cheviots and on the beaches. The Smithy is charming and the bed is so comfortable and all so tasteful, we plan to be back next year.”
