Set in the peaceful, secluded countryside of the Ythan Valley, Smithfield, the 200 year old home of the Thomas-Wright family, offers a warm and friendly welcome.

On the edge of the small hamlet of Ythanbank and nestled in the valley of the River Ythan this quality Bed and Breakfast is just 10 minutes from Ellon & Methlick and 30 minutes from Aberdeen & Peterhead.

Guests are welcome to relax in the south-facing sitting room, listen to music and enjoy books from the owners' wide and eclectic collection.

Smithfield's guest rooms include a spacious & elegantly furnished double room with en-suite shower room on the ground floor; and a tastefully furnished, single room with separate, private bathroom on the first floor. Both rooms have their own tea & coffee making facilities, sumptuous organic cotton mattresses and they enjoy views over the garden and the rolling countryside beyond.

Previous guests have complimented their hosts on the hospitable & friendly welcome, the tasty organic breakfasts tailored to individual tastes and the tranquil location - all of which have led to very comfortable and relaxing visits.

Smithfield Bed and Breakfast also offers the option of long stay accommodation at reduced rates for guests who may need an extended stay in the area.

There is also a splendid self-catering Log Cabin in the daisy meadow behind Smithfield. Please see other entry: The Little Lodge, Ythanbank, Ellon.

Guest book comments:
'Hospitality second to none - Thank you so much for our introduction to Aberdeenshire.'
'We were expecting a 'bog-standard' B&B, not a 5 Star Hotel. The food was wonderful; we are now organic converts.'
'We booked at the last minute - what a wonderful surprise. The attention to detail is fantastic.'
'As good as it gets...."

The Thomas-Wrights are happy to supply advice & information on all local places of interest, as well as regularly updated What's On information.
