“Very nice cottage in an excellent location”
Reviewed 21 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Really nice cottage, clean and spacious in an excellent location. Very close to Bury St Edmunds but at the same time a feeling of getting away from it all. Owner very helpful.

“Lovely rural retreat”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed here with some Australian friends who were in the UK on holiday.
Forge Cottage is a really beautiful cottage in a stunning rural location, it was very clean and well kept, offering comfortable accommodation. There are lots of lovely walks around the farm and beyond.
In addition there is lots to do in the surrounding area and Bury St Edmunds is a really lovely old market town retaining a wealth of history.
This was an ideal place to relax and catch up with old friends. Would highly recommend.

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.
