Excellent family accommodation! by Margaret Fell on April 6th 2018
Excellent warm family accommodation , all on one floor and with a choice of appropriate sized beds, two bathrooms, and a large table. Friendly helpful owners next door with a lovely dog, Archie. The cottage coped well with 7 people in wet weather. Generous 'Welcome Basket' with fresh local eggs. Wonderful view of the church with well kept grounds and sounds of the rooks in the local trees. It is everything it advertises to be.

Excellent provision for disabled by Donoghue Family on September 26th 2017
All were impressed with the cottage, which is fitted out to the highest standard and spacious enough for everyone. Cooking, eating and socialising for seven is never easy, here the layout provided space for all such activities. Access and provision for elderly and disabled was excellent (ramp, all rooms on one floor and walk in shower). Location is a little off the main roads but this was compensated by quiet roads and lovely views as we headed out to other attractions. Local pub was very welcoming though need to check when open.

Great tourist info by Edwards Family on August 12th 2017
A lovely little village with an easy to find building next to a quiet church. We were met on our arrival by Caroline , who escorted us around and explained everything. We especially liked the tourist standard info section for local attractions and places to eat and drink, the comfortable beds and luxury linen, convenient for the local pub.
Lots of options for days out by Darren Woodhead on August 11th 2017
Everything you could need and set out well. Plenty of space and the games were used on the only wet-weather day we had. (This was a blessing because we visited lots of places each day, coast and moorland , Abbeys and Castles, pubs and restaurants ...a rest day was welcome) The tourist information within the Forge is excellent and helped us plan our days out with lots of options.
First class facilities by Bernard Faulkner on August 3rd 2017
Facilities at Old Forge cottage are first class. We were only able to stay 3 nights but beds very comfortable and 'welcome pack' just what we needed. We enjoyed driving through Hockney Yorkshire countryside and made the most of good access to coast. A lovely stay in clean well-appointed accommodation.

Very comfortable beds by The Taylors Hansons & Marneys on May 15th 2017
Thank you for a fantastic weekend in your beautiful cottage. The welcome pack was such a lovely touch, thank you. The beds are very comfortable. We look forward to visiting you again.

Awesome for Pyromaniacs by Luke Griffiths on May 1st 2017
First of all, the beds and free Wifi were excellent. We had a wonderful time here, enjoying the stream and exploring the local village & countryside. While staying at the cottage, we enjoyed the wide variety of board games, and the fireplace entertained many of us pyromaniacs. Monopoly really stood out, along with the pubs, and long mile countryside walks. Thought the DVD's provided were amazing especially Harry Potter. Our three enjoyable days are going to be remembered through history in our minds (especially the fireplace). Sincerely Jonathon Samuel Law, Leila Rose Griffiths-Law, Adam Law, Emily Law, Luke Griffiths, Carla & Grandma!
