I loved my short stay in the Forge, the place has so much character it has to be seen to be believed. The instructions in the pdf sent prior to my arrival were clear and I had no problems throughout my stay. Lots of dvds in the cabinet and books, plus leaflets on things to do around the area, wish I hadn't been staying for work! It was nice reading the visitors book with other peoples comments and where they'd come from too. I would love to come and stay again and would highly recommend it to others.

The accommodation was absolutely beautiful and just what it looked like in the pictures. There was lots of character, with great decor and the log fire was a great addition (especially as it was a bit rainy on Saturday afternoon). I spent a weekend here with my partner and it was perfect for our short break. It was well equipped: the kitchen had all the essentials, bed was extremely comfy and there was a useful booklet with all the instructions. We had no problems and Jules was a wonderful host. I would definitely recommend this accommodation.

I spent one month in the Forge and I must say it was a lovely stay and I didn’t have any problem. It is a unique place to stay with lots of character and very cozy. It is well equipped and has all the comforts, even for longer stays. Jules was a great host and always very good at communicating. She gave perfect instructions for everything. Totally recommended!

The Forge was the perfect cosy place for a new years break. Jules provided perfect instructions for finding it and communication with her was excellent. We loved the log fire, the kitchen is well equipped and the surrounding countryside was ideal for a new years day walk. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We loved the Forge! Jules sent instructions on how to find it well in advance. The forge is beautifully designed and decorated. The kitchen is well equipped and we loved the log burner. The bed was sooooo comfy. We went with a baby. Jules did warn us beforehand of the stone flooring and she was right. The forge is probably more suited to couples. I would definitely recommend this place to stay.

The house itself was absolutely lovely and cosy, with a lot of character. Great for a christmasy break! Local walks were a bit hard to find without a car - so a map of footpaths would be helpful. There were helpful instructions on how to use the facilities. All in all really nice!!
