Description

Ideal property for a family holiday in a super location ideal for the coast and countryside with myriad attractions.

This former blacksmith’s forge offers something a bit different. It is full of character with exposed stone walls, a wealth of beams, high ceiling, and a minstrels’ gallery overlooking the spacious living area. There is also a grand piano to practise on! The ground floor bedroom leads off the living room and has patio doors with access to the Italian style garden with benches. The patio doors from the living room open out to a paved seating area overlooking the lake, a peaceful spot with a picnic bench from which to observe the bird life. A wrought iron spiral staircase leads up to the twin room in the gallery, and through to the en-suite double bedroom.
The Old Forge is attached to the owners’ farmhouse and provides a peaceful setting, the perfect base from which to explore the many attractions in this area. Weston-super-Mare has 7 miles of sandy beach and a famous pier, along with many traditional seaside attractions. Nearby are the smaller and quieter resorts of Burnham-on-Sea and Clevedon. Cheddar Gorge and Caves are a must, along with the caves of Wookey Hole. The city of Wells, with its magnificent cathedral and Bishop’s Palace, offers a delightful day out. Also within an hour’s drive are the cities of Bath and Bristol. Visit Glastonbury, with its abbey ruins and famous tor, and the Clarks retail village at Street. Shop 11/2 miles, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    We have had a fantastic week at this little gem! The cottage is quirky and not to everyone's taste but we really enjoyed this lovingly restored property. The location of the Old Forge is perfect for visiting many local attractions including Wells, Cheddar and Brean Down. The hosts were available if needed and helpful with any questions. The property is so spacious and comfortable, ideal for a family getaway with all ages. We found that the kitchen could be better equipped for cooking family meals however overall it did have most things that we needed. We were also not too keen on the wet room as it was indeed always wet! Not to our taste but a clean and functional room nonetheless. We would not hesitate to recommend the Old Forge as a great base for exploring North Somerset and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this peaceful location.

    We had a lovely time at the cottage. It's well equipped and very comfortable as well as warm. We were a family of four (children 9 and 11) with two grandparents. The cottage is perfect for 6 people and the very large living room area is the highlight. The cottage is decorated with care and it did feel like a home away from home. The hosts were really nice, incredibly helpful and always available.
