  • "The Forge is a delightful place to stay with lovely hosts Jane and Dean."

    Clean and comfy with all you need. We would hope to return and explore area further as our trip was cut short due to health issues.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at The Forge."

    We had everything we needed and it was a very cosy cottage to relax in after a day's walking or sight-seeing. Also, the cottage is in a good position, between Hereford and Ledbury, for visiting Herefordshire.

  • "This amazing cottage was exactly as depicted in pictures."

    In addition, I did not expect it but the garden behind the house is not used by the owners and is very secluded and very nice place to relax, meditate or have an exercise. There is plenty of nice walks nearby and places to visit. I will be definitely coming back to this charming cottage and very hospitable owners.
