    Great Easter break , fantastic weather 😎 Cottage is next door to Scot Arms pub, decent food and drink if slow service ! Cottage is as described - in need to exterior paintwork - but suited our needs. Good equipment in cottage, flaky Wi-fi and limited basics provided ( 2 x half loo roll for 6, no shower gels etc) but overall a great stay in great location for Dorset area

    We had a fab time, it was so relaxing. Such an amazing location. We can’t wait to stay again. We had one small issue that the heating wasn’t working but the log burner and electric fires ensured we stayed warm. I can’t praise this place enough, we loved it.

    We had an very nice stay at the Old Forge. There were a couple of minor maintenance issues (broken oven door handle, several blown bulbs and a non functional radiator in the main bedroom). The two bedrooms that adjoin the road next to the pub are not well insulated from the cold or sound so we found it nippy at night (we stayed in late October) and woke a few times around midnight as people left the pub. However, with the log fire lit, the house was very cosy and it was a great base for exploring the area. We visited Charmouth, Abbotsbury, Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Lulworth, Corfe, Studland and Swanage without much trouble or traffic problems. There are plenty of nice walks from the property and we never had a problem with parking. Overall, we were happy with our choice to stay here and would probably stay again. A few little issues, but good value for money.

    We had a great time. There were a few maintenance issues with the cottage (leaking velux window, outside light not working, hot water switched off, only one tea towel, dishwasher consumables needed) but the cottage suited us well. Being next door to a good pub (if slightly overpriced) was gret but there were no shops in the village and no cash machines within 5 miles. Lots and varied things to do in the area.

    Very nice property. Need to be careful if staying with little ones, since all floors are concrete tiles and on several different levels but that should not stop you having a great time at the Old Forge.

    We all (two sisters and self)enjoyed the facilities at The Old Forge. Shower in bathroom attached to old forge bedroom did not have right temperature either too hot or cold. But could use the alternative bathroom, so okay.
