    Lovely accommodation in a lovely quiet peaceful setting. Only negative was the green light on the emergency exit in the bedroom which meant the bedroom wasn’t dark enough when trying to sleep.

    Most relaxing holiday we've had in years. Lack of internet connection turned out to be a huge positive - it is possible to live without Facebook, Twitter etc. Hot tub meticulously maintained on a twice daily basis and we did take full advantage of it. Good big bedrooms with en suites and living space meant that 4 adults + energetic dog didn't feel like a squeeze. Good, easy and safe dog walking on the doorstep too. Cheery welcome and walk-through with James put us at ease from the very start. Would definitely consider as an option when looking at another cottage holiday.

    We really enjoyed the peace and quiet in the rural location. Highly recommend the hot tub which was very clean and well maintained.. Lovely local walks with our dog and fabulous food at pub about 25 minute walk away.

    Staying at The Forge was an excellent place from which to visit so much of surrounding Yorkshire. Plenty of walks nearby for taking the dog out? The owner was on-hand to make us feel very welcome and to give us advice.

    We had a lovely weekend away and would recommend this cottage to anyone as it was lovely and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The only downside we found that it is advertised as having WiFi, and so we took entertainment accordingly however, there is WiFi there but it’s very very weak and cannot be used for streaming or downloading only messaging and searching slowly.

    Fantastic place, I spent four days here with my family and our dog. A fab time had by all, we lit the log fire every night & also used the hot tub every day. I would definately stay here again it was a lovely relaxing break in a beautiful barn conversion. Lovely walks & not too far from York where we went for the day.....overall a perfect break in a beautiful place.....at a great price ?
