    We loved our winter break to Old Forge Cottage, it was so cosy and relaxing. Very clean and comfortable and ideal for a peaceful getaway with four-legged friends. Highly recommended!

    Excellent cottage in a very rural location, Quiet local village with a pub 7 mins walk away. Local beaches within short drives and easy access to Wasdale too



    out of 10

    Fantastic holiday. Wendy and Brian were very welcoming and helpful. Everything in the cottage we could possibly want and scrupulously clean. The lovely, natural garden was a real treat to sit in with the dog while we looked across the river to the cow fields. We will definitely go back.

    Lovely cottage in the most wonderful peaceful location. We took both of our dogs and they enjoyed all the local walks and nearby beaches. We enjoyed the nearby pub and the good supply of jigsaws and dvds in the evenings. A great place to escape for some peace and quiet. We are already planning our next visit.

    out of 10

    Really lovely cottage with an enclosed garden (even for 2 spaniels & a setter). We were lucky with weather so able to leave door open most of the time. Everything we needed in cottage as we ate in most of the time. Good location for visiting other villages, lakes, etc. Nice walks from cottage too. Plenty information in cottage too



    out of 10

    Lovely beach nearby, lovely stay, would benefit from a thorough clean and some updating (bed and pillows especially)



    out of 10

    Beautiful little cottage , very lovely chilled owners . Great location



    out of 10

    The old Forge was one of the best cottages we have stayed in. Owners were really nice and helpful. Lots of nice walks from the doorstep. Our 2 dogs loved the garden. We will definitely be back again.
