Our Cottage

Old Forge Cottage is a recently refurbished, grade II listed cottage with exposed beams and period features, reusing the original materials and resources where possible, yet adding contemporary touches.

We have put a lot of time, effort and love into refurbishing Old Forge Cottage and we hope that it shows.

Ground Floor

Old Forge Cottage ground floor consists of

  • An entrance area with hooks for coats, dog leads etc and a tray for those muddy boots
  • A cosy snug with sofa, armchairs and smart TV and DVD player. The perfect place to escape the family hustle with a book or for the children to relax and watch their own TV programmes whilst the adults get dinner ready. French doors out to the patio
  • A welcoming open plan lounge, dining and kitchen space, perfect for family or friend groups
  • The lounge, with wooden flooring and oak beams has two comfortable sofas as well as an armchair. There is a 55” smart TV and a cosy gas log-effect fire, perfect for gathering round on a winters evening or post Wyeside walk
  • The dining area has a large farmhouse table with handcrafted bench seating and chairs.  A highchair is available for our little guests. From here the garden can be seen through the French doors
  • The kitchen cupboards are fully stocked with everything you need to make your stay hassle free and you will find an electric double oven, induction hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave, 4 slice toaster and kettle
  • A downstairs WC with hand basin and door hiding away a washing machine, airer, ironing board etc


Old Forge Cottage has 4 stylish and comfortable bedrooms set over a first and second floor.

  • A retractable stair gate is fitted to the top and bottom of the stairs.



  • The courtyard garden which is a secure, walled suntrap, features an original cobblestone square and handmade seating area.

The perfect place to relax and soak after a long walk or to bathe the children. There is also a shower over if baths are not your thing. There is also a high level cistern toilet and hand basin.
