• About The Old Forge

    A wonderful place in which to relax and unwind, this comfortable and charming 17th-century brick and flint cottage was once the village blacksmith’s shop and still retains its original brick forge.

Shop 100 yards and pub serving food 0.25 miles.

    The Old Forge was full of character with its history. The attention to detail relating to comfort, cleanliness & a most welcoming atmosphere with tea, coffee, milk, jam & apple juice was a wonderful extra after a long drive & was very much appreciated. There was everything there that could be asked for; home from home. We will definitely be returning.

    Would have been a ten on cleanliness and comfort but. Just needs attention to shower tiles, a bit of grout would do the trick, only at the bottom of the shower. The Old Forge is clean and homely. The welcome pack always appreciated. Garden is a real bonus for parking and has a washing line. A table and four chairs supplied, a lovely place to sit and relax. The owner was pleasant and although we booked late still let us arrive at 12 noon. Great time as you seem to get an extra day. We have stayed before and will definitely stay again. A real gem in a small Suffolk village.

    Great place to stay. The off road parking was perfect and the dog was safe in the yard. The cottage was really well equipped and the welcome was excellent. It was a great c nitre to explore the coastline from and we really enjoyed it all.

    We thoroughly enjoyed staying in 'The Old Forge' as we felt it a privilege to stay in such a unique and historically interesting cottage. All the artefacts in and around the cottage were from the days when it was a working forge, and the photograph album showing the stages of the renovation were most interesting.

    we enjoyed our stay at The Old Forge, the property was comfortable and clean and very well equipped.Our only issue was the noise levels from outside as we are used to living in a very quiet area
