As its name suggests The Old Smithy is understood to have been originally the village blacksmiths shop which in more recent years has been converted to provide an attractive and surprisingly spacious, three-bedroomed, detached cottage.

Situated on the outskirts of Parwich but within easy reach of the villages local amenities (shop, pubs, village school, church etc). The property now provides surprisingly spacious, three bedroomed, propane gas fired central heating.
