Very comfortable place to stay and welcoming owners. Excellent breakfast with a very comprehensive choice of items. Right next door to an excellent pub with very good restaurant.

We spent a very pleasant night at the old forge. The room was clean and had everything you would expect, breakfast was enjoyable. The hosts were attentive but not intrusive .

“Lovely, warm, friendly B & B, would definitely return!!!”
Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Thank you Colin & Wendy for a lovely stay - thanks for a friendly welcome, the room was so pretty with lots of lovely features, loved the old wood beams!
Breakfast was superb and there was no issues with asking for it at 6.30am!!... nothing seemed to be too much trouble!!
It was also lovely to be able to relax in the garden with a glass of complimentary wine!
This B & B was a little gem!!
Colin and Wendy go the extra mile make you feel special, thanks for the new toothbrush and the fantastic directions into Shrewsbury!! (missed all the traffic)
We cannot recommend this B&B highly enough.
Hopefully see you soon :-)

“Excellent ”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A lovely warm welcome by both Colin and Wendy despite not arriving until 8pm.

The room was lovely and clean with some nice touches such as bottled water biscuits etc.

Breakfast was nothing other than excellent and again a healthy list of choices was offered.

You get the feeling from Colin and Wendy that nothing is too much trouble.

One thing to note... Watch the beams, they are quite low as I found out *ouch*

“Lovely, would definitely return.”
Reviewed June 19, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A warm welcome by owners, large room was lovely & clean. Nice touch to have bottled water & offer of fresh milk for tea, much needed after long drive!
Lots of choice for good quality breakfast which is served in pretty dining room, again attention to cleanliness was obvious. We were visiting family who have moved nearby & would definitely go back, the self catering unit which we were shown looks lovely too, complete with wood burner so all year round potential. A nice touch is to be able to sit in the garden which we did as the weather was gorgeous. Felt the owners really cared and as a result The Old Forge is more than your average B&B.
