    We arrived at the cottage, straight after lockdown was lifted to find that there was a renovation of a barn in progress next to the cottage resulting in noisy construction machinery which started up every week day morning at approximately 8am. A leaflet was left in the cottage by the owners advising that they could take no responsibility for the work which had started in April, after lockdown but they had not advised the booking agents. We were told it could go on until October. If we had known about the building site we would not have booked as we were looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday. it was impossible to have breakfast outside in the garden as it was too noisy and at times you could not have the French windows open. The garden area and garden furniture are in need of some maintenance. There was also an infestation of ants in the bathroom

    My husband & I had a really relaxing three days at the Old Forge, it was just what we were looking for especially as we could take our dog with us too! The bed & pillows were really comfortable which made for a good nights sleep! Will definitely visit again when the weather is warmer to make the most of the garden!

    It was a romantic Christmas break, and it was just that. Judy decorated the Old Forge and supplied a lovely Christmas hamper for us. The bed was so comfortable and the shower was great too. If I had a criticism it would be the coffee table is too big for the Forge but that is my own opinion.

    The Old Forge is a hidden gem. Peaceful and quiet. Easy walk 1.5 miles from a awesome local pub (Fox & Hounds) in Cattistock. Bed is amazingly comfortable and a large powerful shower ! Highly recommended place to use as a base to explore Dorset.

    Lovely place to stay in a quiet hamlet. Need a car to get about in the darker evenings and no shops close by.

    Fantastic holiday cottage for two in idyllic Dorset countryside. Dogs welcomed and the separate entrance hall allows you to deal with your wet or muddy canine friend easily. It only needs the stream running through the garden to be fenced off and your pooch could be allowed to run loose outside. Not a problem for us in November but in earlier months with warmer days you'd want to be outside on the patio and not worry about where your dog had got to!
