About The Smithy

The Smithy is a comfy self-catering cottage in Cumbria, only a two-minute walk from the centre of Newton-in-Furness where there are welcoming pubs such as The Village Inn and the Farmers Arms. The cottage sleeps up to four people in two bedrooms and is popular with couples, families and friends who come to walk and cycle through the surrounding countryside and the nearby Lake District National Park.

Newton-in-Furness is the ideal spot for a fun-packed holiday whether you want outdoor adventure, history, food, or a bit of everything. Windermere and the Southern Lakes are just a few miles away, as is Morecambe Bay and the coast, but you only have to step outside the front door to have direct access to footpaths and cycling routes leading to stunning views and beauty spots. Piel Island and Earnse Island are both favourite places for a day trip, while the seal colony at the South Walney Nature Reserve always entertains. Take a picnic and soak up the atmosphere in the shadow of Furness Abbey, or meet the locals at the South Lakes Wild Animal Park.

Further afield, attractions include sightseeing trips on Windermere, shopping in Kendal and enjoying museums dedicated to the lives and work of Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth. There are opportunities to climb mountains, fish, ride horses, play golf, mountain bike, and visit elegant country houses and manicured gardens. Visitors can do something different every day or find a quiet spot to simply sit and breathe in the fresh air.

The cottage is well-equipped for self-catering but the owners, who live in the adjacent property, are happy to recommend local pubs and restaurants if you want to eat out. The Smithy is a lovely, year-round holiday destination with a pretty garden to enjoy in fine weather and a cosy log-effect fire to add warmth in winter.
