Introduction
Redgate Smithy is a 200 year old converted blacksmith’s cottage and forge, in a rural location, offering bed and breakfast accommodation. There are three Guest Bedrooms, all located on the first floor; two double rooms, and a twin room. Breakfast is served in the ground floor Conservatory, which guests may also use as a lounge. There is a wooded garden with various seating areas. The house is totally non-smoking.

Public Transport Links
Most of our guests arrive by car, but there is a mainline railway station at Liskeard, about 3 miles away, and taxis are available.

Approach and Car Parking
Redgate Smithy is situated about half-way between Doublebois and Minions, up on Bodmin Moor. The house is at the crossroads, on a quiet lane. There is a large granite chippings parking area for up to four cars, with ample turning space. A granite drive and path leads to the main entrance of the house. The car park is lit at night by three security lights on motion sensors.

Main Entrance
The front door is of standard width and leads into a glazed porch, over a raised threshold and small step down. The floor is slate tiled.

Public Areas (Ground Floor)
The main reception area is through a glazed door and is slate tiled. A step and raised threshold leads into the Conservatory, through glazed double doors, which is floored in wood-effect vinyl. A glazed double door leads out to the garden, with another raised threshold.

Garden
There are paved steps up to the paved patio area, and granite chippings/wooden sleeper steps to the rest of the garden. Granite paths wind through trees and shrubbery, leading to the paved top patio area. There are three gates out to the drive/parking area which are of standard width, and must be kept closed at all times, for security of our dog (a cocker spaniel) and any guests’ dogs.

Guest Bedrooms
The three Guest Bedrooms are on the first floor, leading off a small landing, accessed via a carpeted staircase from the main reception area. There is a banister on one side. The staircase is L-shaped with a mid-way landing. All doors are standard width.

Special Needs
Guests with special dietary requirements can be accommodated with advance notice. All of our breakfast dishes are prepared in-house, using locally sourced products where-ever possible.

Children
Children 12 years of age and over are welcome. We are not equipped for accommodating younger children.

Pets
Redgate Smithy is a pet-friendly B&B. We have a sprocker spaniel called Brydy who is quiet and well-behaved. Guests are requested to exercise their dogs down the lane, and pick-up bags are provided in the porch, along with towels. There is a waste bin near the garage. We can also provide dog-beds and bowls. Guests are requested not to bring dogs into the Conservatory during breakfast. They may remain in the rooms if there is no risk of damage, relax in their owners’ cars, or be tied outside in good weather!
