    The Old Forge was perfect for us, 2 adults & 1 dog. The garden was a good size & enclosed. Very pretty surroundings, nice country walks, nearest shop & pub took half an hour to walk to. Comfy bed & powerful hot shower.

    We found the Old Forge very comfortable. We also liked having a garden for our dog to use.

    I had a fabulous quiet, restful time at the old forge which was well equipped, with lovely unexpected extras. It was peaceful and off the beaten track but only 30 mins drive to the Jurassic coast. Walking routes were on the doorstep.

    Warm welcome, cosy cottage, tranquil setting with good walking nearby and in the area. Convenient for Bridport, Sherborne, Beaminster and Dorchester. Good pubs nearby - the Fox and Hounds at Cattistock around 2 miles away, walkable when the weather is good/days longer. Hope to return.

    Beautiful cottage in a lovely out of the way spot. One mile to the pub and shop and both worth the effort.

    Last minute booking to avoid some of the 5th Nov fireworks. Lovely cottage in a quiet location, but not too far from many interesting places to visit. Our standard poodle loved galloping about the garden and we were thrilled to see nuthatch, woodpecker and marsh tits visiting the feeders. Nice touch from owner with local eggs and biscuits etc. Will book again.

    We described The Old Forge as an absolute gem !! In such a tranquil place this idyllic cottage felt like a home from home !! We enjoyed such a relaxing four night break we are already recommending it to family & friends !! Without doubt a revisit is on our tick list !! Judy Thompson made us feel very welcome & we thank her for the eggs, milk, biscuits, tea & coffee which we found on arrival !! Only one slight grumble... Why such a huge coffee table for two people ?? Overall a simply marvelous place !!
