I am sorry to announce that due to the COVID-19 pandemic I am unable to offer the level of safeguarding and  at the same time offer a warm welcome to my home. I am therefore closing the bed and breakfast accommodation I would like to thank all of my guests for their support and in many cases friendship over the years and wish you all well for the future.


The Smithy Studio Bed and Breakfast in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire is a welcoming and comfortable character B&B, a few minutes walk from the charming market town of Ashby de la Zouch, with free, private parking and free wifi. 

Enjoy the feel of an oasis in the country in this former 1770 forge, yet be within a two minute walk of wonderful restaurants and shops in Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire. 


Smithy's owner, Helen, a professional artist, whose work you can see throughout the house, offers a warm welcome at this unique Bed and Breakfast, ably assisted by her characterful but wonderfully obedient cockapoo, Mylo.

"Mylo is genuinely the cutest dog I have ever met,

we are working on a plan to steal her!"

The accommodation comprises a luxurious suite with a large double bedroom accessed by a spiral staircase from a separate ground floor sitting room (with a desk) that leads to a secret garden, and an en-suite walk-in wet room.  A further double room with its own private bathroom is also available.

Both rooms include a freshly-made homemade breakfast of your choice and free WIFI.

Guests are welcome in Helen's studio, where some paintings and others in the house are for sale with a special discount for staying guests.

"Really lovely accommodation, clean and spacious,

very comfortable with loads of character."
