After passing a junction with two small roads down to the right continue for a short way coming to The Smithy on your left. Then continue as above.

Inside you will find the vendors have created a warm and welcoming atmosphere that blends 21st century comforts with period charm and character. The garage and outbuildings offer the new owners plenty of space to work or play and the delightful south facing garden takes in the open southerly aspect with sun all day long.
