Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. A well located cottage which was very clean and well maintained. Colin and Wendy were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, they were there if you needed them at any time but they were not intrusive. Unfortunately the weather was not very good but having a warm and cosy cottage to come back to made all the difference. I would recommend the Old Forge to anyone wanting a nice peacful holiday. June 2012.
  2. Really enjoyed our long weekend. Just wish we could have stayed longer! March 2012.
  3. Beautifully decorated and furnished barn, elegant but cosy. Oct 2011.

  5. Excellent location. A warm welcome. All we required. No problems at all. Sept 2011.
  6. Excellent -2 bedrooms -with a 5ft bed in one and twin singles/6ft in other .2 en suites. Everything you could want. Outside area. 2 minutes from pub -standard pub fare but good value -curry night about £6 each including a drink. Friendly but not invasive owners in B and B next door. Sept 2011.
  7. A very good location and cottage very homely. Welcome pack excellent. Had a great time. July 2011.
  8. Excellent accommodation in terms of comfort, space and fixtures and fittings. Welcome hamper was also very full and much appreciated. Next to a busy through road, but not overly intrusive. July 2011.
  9. The welcome we received on arrival at The Old Forge was both warm and friendly with a generous hamper waiting.

Our holiday was very relaxing and enjoyable - thank you. June 2011.

  17. The cottage is an absolutely beautiful conversion of former farm buildings. From the layout of the rooms to the location of the windows and intelligent use of the existing structure it was carefully planned and converted into a charming and characterful cottage, in a lovely location with easy access to the main road networks for visiting Shropshire and mid Wales. Nov 2010.
  18. Great place and location everything you need for a great break. Nov 2010.
  19. The accommodation was well situated as a base for touring Shropshire and North Wales. The property was extremely clean and well presented.

It made all the difference to be met by the owners when we arrived and shown around the property. Oct 2010.
  20. The property was fitted out to an excellent standard, both in furniture and fittings and equipment. The hospitality basket received on arrival far outweighted any expectations we might have had, as did the welcome given by the owners. Sept 2010.
