“Last minute booking”
Reviewed 10 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Apologies for late review. This was my third visit & as before it was perfect. We stayed in the smithy. You want for nothing, very well equipped. The views from the smithy are amazing & it's lovely to sit out on the veranda late at night & listen to the owls. The village is just a 10-15 min walk away, where there is a local stores & a couple of very friendly pubs. Would definitely stay again & recommend to anyone wanting a peaceful, relaxing break. Thank you

“Peaceful retreat”
Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed at the Smithy for a weekend break and the dog was welcome too. The property has been refurbished to a high standard and is equipped with all you can you think of.
The property sits between the owners property and the other rental property, The Count House. We were the only ones on this site which was nice and quiet and the view down the winding river day and night is lovely. The only small negative I would give is that the heating boiler is situated on the other side of the bedroom wall which breaks into the dead quiet at about 5 in the morning. The road to this property is more of a bridle path than a road and this gives it the feeling of remoteness but is only a 15 minute walk along the river tamar to the nearest village of Calstock. The Tamar Inn comes highly recommended.

Thank you for your feedback - we're delighted that you enjoyed your stay.
We note your comment about the boiler. Whilst the boiler house is adjacent to the cottage, there is nearly two foot of solid stone wall between them. The boiler only operates when there's a demand for heat - generally that's during the day and evening. It can be so very, very quiet here so, you can be aware of even the slightest noise. We're sorry that your sleep was disturbed.

Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Beautifull views over the Tamar. Very peacefull with everything you could need at the property including WIFI. A 10 minute walk into Calstock for the local shop and a very nice pub.
We would highly recommend this place and will definately return hopefully in the summer next time.

“The most amazing place”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The Smithy is the most amazing place to stay ,secluded yet within easy reach of 2 good local pubs actually we only visited the pub one lunchtime as we were happy to sit outside having a drink and listening to the Owls flying around the woods in the evenings.We were lucky to have 3 beautiful days and even manage to have breakfast outside not bad for November.The walks in the area are fabulous as well especially if you have dogs.Nick the owner was very friendly and helpful .We could not fault the Smithy and I have fallen in love with it I felt really sad to be leaving but we do plan to return next year.

“Another wonderful stay!”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was our second visit to Okel Tor mines staying at The Smithy and once again we were not disappointed. Very peaceful and comfortable and perfectly situated to get around the area even as far as both the North and South coast. Our dogs also love it and love to play with Jess the resident dog. Hope to go back next year when we need to recharge our batteries.
