The Old Smiddy, Poolewe

A delightful old stone cottage situated right in the centre of Poolewe, in a very picturesque spot overlooking the River Ewe, so combines both lovely views and the convenience of amenities close by.

This blacksmiths cottage and adjoining smiddy were built circa 1880 and both have been sympathetically restored by the current owners’ to provide comfortable holiday accommodation whilst retaining its character. Poolewe is a very pretty village and has a shop/Post Office, a hotel/bar, café, indoor swimming pool and a village hall, which hosts a weekly market.

The cottage is next door to Riverside Cottage and Seapool House.

The cottage is ideally situated for walking, there being many excellent walks close by, and there are many sandy beaches within a short drive. The world famous Inverewe Gardens are only 10 minutes walk away and the River Ewe is one of the best salmon fishing rivers in the area. Gairloch, the nearest small town, is only 6 miles away and there you will find more shops, restaurants and hotels. From Gairloch pier, fishing and wildlife cruises can be arranged and there is also a golf course and pony trekking centre.

We have been holidaying in this area for over 20 years. The Old Smiddy is our sixth cottage in Poolewe and definitely the best location, a clean and comfortable cottage.


The Downie family

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at The Old Smiddy. The house was so handy for local walks and attractions and we loved sitting in the large lounge in the evening looking at the river - who needs a telly! Of course we were very lucky with the weather and lack of midges when we were there but I'm sure we would have had a relaxing time whatever the weather.

Thanks again and hope to make a return trip in the future.


The Cousins family

Fantastic wee cottage! Very comfortable and cosy - needed when the weather wasn't so great. Very nice waking up to the river. Loved the old photos dotted around the cottage. Thank you.


The Swinbourns

We have been coming to Poolewe for a few years and always stayed in a house along this road. It is the first in this house but it's been AMAZING. I loved the house, it was so cosy. A wonderful week, we had a wonderful stay. Many thanks.


Kathy & Jim Anderson and Ralph the dog.

Loved the cottage very comfy and quaint. Great location. We had some lovely walks and would definitely return.
