Stayed in this this wonderfully appointed cottage in the centre of the village of Groby.
A very cosy property perfectly located near to all local amenities, yet you still get a very private feel once inside the premises.
Great pub adjacent provides good food and refreshments.
Close to all major routes too.
Thank you for the experience, can't wait to return.
This was a perfect little cottage, great facilities, friendly helpful staff at the pub, couldn't fault it.
What a find! i am totally thrilled that we had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful cottage. I booked it for 1 night for my husbands birthday as we were in the area and thought it would be a nice change to a hotel, I only wished we could have stayed longer. The cottage is owned by the pub next door and we had the friendliest greeting from the manager and all the staff. We also ate here and had a really good meal so worth a visit. The cottage has everything you need and has been decorated beautifully. Thank you so much for our stay and we would defiantly return. :)
A fantastic cottage. Top notch specifications. A real Blend of old Thatched cottage with lovely modern amenities such as, Smart TV, great shower and fully equipped kitchen.
Brain was excellent, being linked with the Stamford Arms means you can relax in both the cottage and the Pub.
After working for 20 years in travel and tourism industry I tend to look for a home from home when going away, seen one hotel seen them all. I was initially attracted to this property as it looked quirky and very well presented. We had some slight hiccups at the booking stage however Brian the owner couldn't have been more helpfully, a sign of the hospitality we was to receive. We was greeted by the owners son who works at the famous Stamford Pub. The cottage was not a disappointment and the pictures do not do it justice. I have stayed in many self catering properties but none better equipped than the Blacksmith. Milk, juices, water, sweets, tea, coffee, I will have forgetten loads however all complementary. We also had fully stocked wine and beer in the fridge, obviously with the price of the cottage you must expect to leave payment for alcohol....but just everything thought of. It didn't finish there! Bathroom robs were available, high quality toiletries, well appointed dressing table, fabulous shower......and the bed!!! Soooooo comfortable. With all this you will be so tempted not to venture out, however we walk around the corner to the Stamford Pub and had a delightful evening. As mentioned previously the owners son works at the pub and we was welcomed with a warm smile. He told us about the history of the pub & cottage and really made us feel very welcomed. Tom was also very helpful when we requested he contacted owner of the cottage Brain to see if we could stay past check out time. We stayed for dinner and the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Overall an amazing stay.....they have just got it so right! Worth every penny and we will stay again!
