Really enjoyed our two night stay at the Old Forge. The owners, Tim and Lucy were very helpful and friendly, breakfast was great and the BnB was full of character and charm. Service was great and I really liked that all the breakfast was either home made or from local produce. Couldn't have asked for more. I would definitely stay again.
The Old Forge was a pretty thatch with all the things you would expect . Lucy and Tim were very friendly and the breakfast was delicious as all the produce was either home grown or sourced locally . We could not of found anywhere better to stay
the whole package. breakfast. comfy bed.very welcoming hosts very eager to please. grounds lovely
nothing to dislike
We stayed the weekend with my partner and his parents to attend a wedding. It felt like having our own country house, cozy, familiar and really nice. The couple that run the B&B were away but the son and daughter were very nice and we had amazing stay.
Very cute place, super friendly and helpful people, delicious breakfast! Great experience!!
Tranquil setting, good food, wonderful hosts
I dont know how big the property is but it is in a very pleasant rural location not far from Shaftsbury. The room we had was comfortable and very clean and we had a great breakfast there. Although it is right next to a busy road we heard very little noise from there and had a very good nights sleep.
No phone signal
Fabulous location and lovely comfy beds!
The property is a cottage, lots of roses growing up the walls with a rural feel about it. The owners were very welcoming and interesting people
The food was excellent and the owners very helpful.
The bed was a bit small but still comfortable.
The breakfast was wonderful comfortable bed nice people who run the hotel would stay again very clean room
tv to small in room ,
Really great location. Lots of interesting things to see inthe Workshop. When interested in restroring old cars and whatever just go....
Nothing really, driving to Pubs and/or Restaurants nearby calms you down....
It felt like a home full of history!
Not having a shower, the bath is nice but you can't beat the shower for speed.
Location, staff, breakfasts
No easy chair in room, shower rather small
Great breakfast - delicious and generous.
No mobile signal: but that's not the responsibility of the B & B, but my network O2 (shame on you)!
LIke an oasis in the desert, this splendid ancient forge, with its warm and handsome old house, was indeed the right choice for two weary travellers such as us. Hosts Nick and Lucy are more than just welcoming; they set out to make their home a haven. Having experienced B&B all over Europe, I can heartily recommend 'The Old Forge' as my number one place to bide awhile. If, like me, you are a classic car buff,your bonus will be listening to Nick, expounding on his 'old cars and odd characters' life. Don't miss this place, it's well worth a detour.
Very welcoming, superb breakfast
Everything. The atmosphere was fantastic. Love the room decoration and the whole property.
