Stay in a little piece of history when you stay in this beautiful cosy cottage. Some parts dating back to 1806, the house was totally renovated in 2012 to provide a stunning balance of modern luxury with uniquely beautiful period features. The Smithy is the old blacksmith's cottage and you can still see the old ford across the river where the horses crossed from the farms beyond and the large stones in the lawned garden where he did his work.
This charming cottage is located in an elevated position on the banks of the River Nethy with a beautiful enclosed, lawned garden perfect for children and dogs. Some wooden steps lead you down to a breathtaking seating area on the river bank to enjoy some summer evening relaxation or informal fishing, bird and nature watching.
The open plan living area is arranged around a huge stone fireplace with wood burning stove with views out across the south facing garden, home to a 150 year old Oak Tree.
Offering underfloor heating in the two bathrooms, dishwasher, washing machine, WiFi and Playstation 3, this cosy cottage retains its character and many period features whilst offering the very finest in self catering accommodation and quality furniture throughout.
The large master bedroom has a king sized bed, TV and DVD player and en-suite shower room. There is a large family bathroom with bath and a pretty second double room with TV and DVD player with garden views. Up the attic stairs is ‘the cabin;' a perfect hideaway for older kids with two comfy single beds, bean bags and twinkling stars.
On a charming quiet street, just a short walk from the beautiful village of Nethy Bridge, The Smithy is in the perfect location to admire the local wildlife literally from your doorstep or if you feel like venturing out, you are in the very heart of the Cairngorms National Park with a multitude of restaurants and activities to choose from.
