    We were extremely pleased with Forge Cottage. When the weather is inclement outside the cottage is very cosy inside. It has all the facilities that one needs on holiday. The garden was very good particularly for our dog. Stiffkey is located in a wonderful area especially if you like walking.

    The cottage is in a good location and has a great garden for small kids to go exploring in BUT the cottage and garden would benefit from some ongoing maintenance. For example, just tidying up the flower beds, cutting down the brambles near the front gate, cutting down the nettles, putting up the fencing panel that has fallen down are all things that could occur in the garden. The open fire in the lunge was not cleaned out properly - loads of ash left behind, the sofa and armchairs are looking tired and are not that comfortable, the rug in the living room although it had been hoovered was filthy dirty. Although the cottage is for 4 adults (we were 3 adults and one 5 year old) it would probably be a squeeze with 4 adults. The stairs are very steep for either elderly people or young children and this SHOULD be mentioned in the description. SOME of the upstairs windows had child locks on, others did not or were broken. The cottage and gardens could be lovely but at best at present is average. There should also be mention that there is car parking for one car for each of the cottages - you could possibly fit 3 small cars on the parking area but this could be a squeeze but there is plenty of parking just down the road.

    We would stay again if the electrics were upgraded ie TV, bedside reading lights, fridge, CD player etc. An additional front door key is essential. Area great , village perfect.

    Gorgeous cottage in lovely setting. Local pub and little shop both fabulous. Cottage generally a bit tired inside. Dirty crockery, stained bedsheets, towels cost extra and the cottage was already pricey, cobwebs, lamp and tv didn't work. Shame.

    Lovely cottage and garden needing just a little TLC but ideal for dogs. Would stay again but probably in the Blacksmith cottage, better position to use garden.

    Comfortable, well equipped cottage in a lovely location. Local pub, The Red Lion, very friendly with good food and dog friendly! We visited in January when the weather was cold and the cottage was chilly, particularly in the kitchen and bathroom but this did not spoil our visit. Cottage was very clean, welcome tea and biscuits on arrival was a nice touch, had a really lovely break and would visit again.

    This is a basic cottage with absolutely no frills. Two up two down suitable for two adults or possibly small family if children old enough to navigate the steep stairs. Not four adults. Requires serious updating to warrant the price paid at new year or high season. Additional cost for towels, dog and wifi incurred. (wifi very poor)Was barely warm enough when the temperatures were close to zero. The open fire is nice but bring your own wood/coal, firelighters, matches etc! This may have been acceptable 20 yrs ago but standards have improved dramatically in this sector of the holiday market.

    Great location: fantastic short walk to the local pub, where food and service received was excellent. Great local coffee house. Cottage has good basic amenities. Need instructions on use for fire to be left for renters to view and use. Along with where to be able to buy wood/fuel to burn? Better heating needed in twin bedroom, as beds were damp. Advise renters as to which gardens can be used? Fantastic cottage for birding and walking. Excellent owner, very knowledgeable and friendly. Looking forward to staying again.
