We had a lovely week in the Forge. There was plenty of room for all the family and great safe outside space for the children to play.

Fantastic celebration house with the best equipped kitchen I have seen for self catering. Lots of space. Plenty of hot water. Wifi was good enough for 3 to work on during the day and for live streaming of films and music by others. Excellent tennis court though can’t use the floodlights. Main open plan room catered easily for 16 and could have held more. My only negative comment is there are no grab rails in the wet room to allow those with mobility problems to move around independently- also needed in sloping hallway. Otherwise just perfect!
