  • Offers Over £295,000


Wind your way through country lanes with views to the Pennines and you will reach Smithy Cottage. The most charming mid terrace property in Great Asby, a small village within the heart of the Eden Valley.

The property dates back to 1700 and has been thoughtfully converted into a gorgeous home with period features that will delight any homeowner and visitor…Come on in, kick off those muddy boots and prepare to fall in love with Smithy Cottage.

The quaint stable door opens and you’re given your first glimpse of what is in store…the wonderful kitchen diner is warm and cosy thanks to the log burner which is set into an exposed sandstone surround with a sandstone hearth and toasting those toes  is the underfloor heating which heats the terracotta floor tiles.

Open the double patio doors on a warm sunny day and step out to the beautifully kept cottage garden. A morning coffee or a glass of chilled white whilst listening to the bubbling beck just a few stone steps away. Gorgeous climbing roses give off their perfumed scent in summer and spring bulbs herald their colours until then. The lawns are perfectly kept with a wide border for additional planting and a gravel area to one side houses a small shed and the oil tank.

Come back inside and walk through the kitchen and into the generous lounge. The light is exceptional, thanks to the dual aspect windows either side. Beamed ceiling and large sandstone fireplace with a multifuel stove makes the room burst with character!

Take the stairs to the upper floor landing and you are greeting by beamed eaves and a bedroom at both ends of the hallway. A useful storage nook is situated to the right where plumbing for a washing machine is located. The current owners however use this space for storage and make use of the washing machine in the kitchen.

Bedroom one is unusually large for a property of this age and is also home to an impressive en suite bathroom! The duel aspect of the room gives magnificent views over the village and onto the fells on one side and to the garden and beck on the other.

Bedroom 2 has the same views as bedroom one. Both bedrooms have exposed beams and vaulted ceilings. Charmingly decorated and wonderfully welcoming.

The bathroom of Smithy cottage is tastefully modern and has discreet lighting which gives a gorgeous ambience to the room. Grey ’metro’ tiles reflect the light from the frosted window which allows the room to feel light and airy. Soak in the lovely bath or opt for a drench shower…the choice is yours!

The cottage is both modern but has a charm thanks to the owners delightful taste in decor and the abundant period features. It would make the most amazing home for first time buyers, or those looking to downsize.

Great Asby is a chocolate box pretty village which is approximately a 10 minute drive from the thriving market town of Appleby in Westmorland. It boasts a locally renowned primary school, a well attended church and a popular pub; The Three Greyhounds, where you can enjoy a pint with the locals or a meal with friends.
