What a fabulous place to stay. Barbara & Dave were lovely hosts. The Forge offered us everything we wanted for our family holiday, with lots of places to visit near by. We visited a different beach every day and lovely walks straight from the front door.

Had a lovely visit with family. The cottage is beautifully presented and Barbara and Dave were wonderful hosts. Very nice personal gestures made for our sons birthday and our puppy Lola appreciated the dog hamper greatly!
