    What a fantastic place! Perfect location, great hosts. We could feel ourselves unwind a little more each day. Thank you so much for a great stay. Even the pooch had a smile on her face. Wonderful.

    We had a great stay here. Great location and great pub and great for the dog with a safe enclosed garden. The hosts Nic and Lance were wonderful. The cottage area may be small but they have got all the rooms tastefully furnished that makes it very homely. I would highly recommend. It is out of the way but thats what makes it so peaceful and your only 10 mins from the shops in Callington. We took eggs but don't has the house across from the Forge sells free range. Lots of nearby walks for your pooch.

    Another wonderful stay at The Old Forge. This cottage has everything you need and more! The owners are very helpful and friendly. Even on bad weather days this cottage is the perfect place to stay inside and relax with an array of games, dvds and books having been provided. The location is extremely rural which is great for a quiet getaway but if you are visiting Cornish or Devon coastal towns your looking at around a 30/60 minute drive.

    Lovely cottage, next to the local pub, but no noise at all. The hosts were charming and could not help enough. Quiet location close to the Dartmoor and cornwall. If you want a great value break ina cosy retreat, then this place is great... the dog loved the special treats left by the host! Thanks so much.

    This was an excellent holiday cottage very well furnished very warm. Lance & Nicci were very welcoming and friendly. The bottle of wine and sweets were a very nice touch plus there was some food for the dog. We would certainly consider revisiting.
