Read the terms and conditions carefully. I have had to cancel 11 days before visit because dog has kennel cough and have been charged 50%. Also I was told there was no way my dog could eat with me however I have read on here that someone was allowed to have their dog with them.

We went on 3rd September for a last minute change of plan for our wedding anniversary. We had no dog sitter so this was perfect, dog ate with us and really really lovely food, well above what we expected for such a last minute booking. Nice and clean homely feel, bathroom was across the landing but this was not an... More

The food was delicious and plentiful, service prompt and good company. On chatting to the other guests, they all agreed what a lovely friendly hotel. It is... More

Phillip and Nicky were very friendly and helpful with local advice about the best places to visit. The room was spotlessly clean and well presented. We ate in one night and the food was excellent. The only drawback was the noise from the road in the night; but we were there at a very hot time and needed all the... More

No Air-conditioning. Old building with multiple steps in and out of rooms. Hosts were like chalk and cheese, she very superior attitude, he was more pleasant. She was offensive following an... More

I stayed for 2 nights and ate in the restaurant both evenings. First off, Nicky and Phil are fantastic hosts and nothing seems to be too much trouble. You simply could not ask for a nicer couple running the hotel. They have great local knowledge which is a boon if you don’t know the area. Phil’s pub recommendation was spot-on!... More

I only stayed one night but the couple who run The Olde Forge were really accommodating. I needed to check in earlier than normal and then was going to be back late. They made sure I had everything I needed. The room was clean, tidy with everything I needed. Couldn't ask for more. Many thanks!

Very friendly couple, all felt very professional but welcoming and warm too. Liked the room and was treated with a truly great breakfast choice in the morning. Loved my stay and can highly recommend. Spacious bedroom with complimentary bathrobe.
