    Lovely cottage, comfortable stay in the peace and quiet. The owners left milk, wine, bread and cake for us which was a big surprise. Gate would have been better placed where the path is but overall a lovely place to stay.

    We felt it was in need of a makeover.As it is up for sale at the moment we felt it was not up to normal standards. We also did not like the owners showing prospective buyers over the property while we were out without our knowledge

    I would have appreciated more written information on rubbish collection and recycling as the owner was away when we arrived. On the whole it was well situated and contained all we required.

    We enjoyed our stay in a comfortable cottage/barn conversion. The cottage has excellent views of the country side on the out skirts of Knockin village. We were greeted by a lovely hamper / starter pack with essentials plus wine and cake. A lovely base for our exploration of the surrounding areas. The owners operate a busy B&B next door and responded to any requests that we had. Yes we would love to stay again in the future.

    Brilliant cottage right next door to a good pub. Really friendly helpful owners, we had a problem with our arrival date (illness in the family) and they made other arrangements for us with absolutely no fuss. Super terrace, almost too hot! with nice garden and country views. Would we go again - definitely.

    Had an amazing time at The Old Forge for a week 23/3/18. Its a beautiful cottage. Would definately love to visit again in the future. Colin and Wendy are so welcoming and friendly. The cottage has everything you need. Its great having The Bradford pub on the door step for evening meals and a pint. The beds were comfortable and rooms so cosy. I would recommend for couples and families to stay here. Thankyou Hargreaves family x
