The Old Smiddy is a charming old blacksmith’s cottage, built in the late 19th century, around 1880. The owners have restored the property incredibly well and have created a wonderful holiday cottage, lovingly furnished with guests’ comfort in mind. This detached home’s situation beside the river is truly magical, and being only a short walk away from the coast (a couple of minutes at most), the property has the best of both worlds. River and sea are right on your doorstep, offering both adventure and relaxation depending on your preference.
Upon entering the property through the courtyard garden at the front, you are greeted by a large hallway with a spacious double bedroom off to the right, which boasts a river view and is the ideal choice for the less mobile. The family bathroom is at the back of the property and has a shower over the bath, great for a hot soak after a busy day. The kitchen/dining room is spacious and a great place to cook up hearty meals after long days exploring coast and country. Also leading off from the hallway is a small living room with an open fire, leading through to the main living room, with its vaulted ceiling and cosy wood burner with door leading into the garden. The large living room is a fantastic space for the family to gather and enjoy some downtime together. Upstairs are two further comfortable and spacious bedrooms, a double and a twin room, each boasting views out across the River Ewe.
Staying at The Old Smiddy you will immediately know you have made the right choice. It’s exactly what you want from a Scottish Highlands holiday cottage. You will find the National Trust Inverewe Gardens just a mile away, or if swimming is your choice of leisure, the swimming pool is only 600 yards away. Being based in Poolewe is a gift, it is such a wonderful area rich in flora and fauna, landscapes, history, and a warm and welcoming community. Beach 5 miles. Shop 300 yards, pub and restaurant 300 yards.
