Forge cottage is a fabulous little cottage. It's beautifully furnished, very comfortable, cosy and clean. The location is very quiet and scenic with long walks from your doorstep. We loved our stay there and will definitely consider going back if we are in the area again. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a restful, quiet weekend.

Excellent, professionally managed property. The cottage was beautiful in appearance, well maintained and in beautiful condition. The cottage has all the amenities, excellently situated between, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge. The cottage also has a great fishing lake, which was visited several times by me and my stepson. An excellent holiday rental, well worth the money. A quality place to stay when visiting the South east of England.
