The Smithy lies just across the yard from the main house and was the original Blacksmiths forge. It still retains many of the original features and blacksmiths artefacts and has made a wonderful conversion with views across the village green to Fontmell Down.
It also has its own private sitting area under a Pergola entwined with grapes and honeysuckle. Accommodation consists of a sitting room/dining room with wood burning stove, steps down to a kitchen and bathroom. Steps up from the sitting room lead to the galleried double bedroom. A perfect honeymoon retreat!
Tim and Lucy share their home with two dogs, a cat, two horses, one donkey and ten chickens! Pudding and Pie are both miniature Labaradoodles, and a very fluffy cat called Nala. Sam and Mabel are kept company in the adjacent paddock by Scrumpy Jack the Donkey, Jasmine the Arabian and her young mare Lily. The chickens are free range in every sense of the word and never far from sight.
Glamping is also available in our two shepherds huts Mabel and Sam. The stress of modern day life is a distant memory here as you gaze across the scarp slopes of Melbury and Fontmell Down.
