    We had a wonderful 2 weeks at the Forge with our 2 children aged 8 and 6. The pool was a wonderful for the children who were in it every day, often several times a day. The property was well equipped and comfortable and the garden was very private with lovely views. The owners were very friendly and helpful - we really felt they wanted us to have a great holiday. The property is in a rural location with lovely walks from the cottage and more lovely countryside all around and we found we could easily drive to everywhere we wanted to visit in 30mins or less (the coast, the cheviot hills, cragside national trust). Also there were good shops/amenities in Alnwick which was only 10mins away. We would definitely like to return to the Forge

    8 and 10 year old girls loved pool and were wet all week. The tumble dryer was a godsend!!

    Excellent accommodation would highly recommend for a secluded hideaway. It even had a personal pool. Would go again.
