“great location & wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 26 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Forge is in a great location close to Dartmoor National Park and the coasts of Devon and Cornwall. There is lots to see and do and if you love the outdoors this is a great spot to explore from.
Andrew and Carole were excellent hosts who provided us with lots of information. The accommodation was well cared for, kitchen stocked with all you need and bed was comfortable. We found it a great spot to relax at the end of the day. While we were here for only 4 nights we believe you can easily spend a week or more exploring the area.
We would definitely consider staying here again if we return to this area.

This was a wonderful trip, the accommodation was perfect for 2 it was beautifully furnished, very well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. The owners were very helpful, they were there to greet us, they recommended walks to us and even gave us a compass and a flask for our trips. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it..

A beautiful Cottage with an air of Calm and a sense of tranquillity. Inviting and homely.
Owners Andrew and Carole were welcoming, friendly and made us feel very much at home.
Nothing was too much trouble. We even enjoyed cuddles from the resident doggy.

Excellent walks in the countryside, good local pub food and very friendly villagers.

Would totally recommend a stay here and we will definitely re- visit THE FORGE again.

Andrew & Carol were excellent hospitable hosts, met us on arrival and gave us all the local information we required. We loved the cottage, well equipped and extremely comfortable. The location is in a lovely village with a friendly pub and walking distance from the Garden House and the moors. Thank you for an excellent holiday.

“Idyllic Self-Contained Lodge.”
Reviewed 27 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Wonderful! Really enjoyed our stay at The Forge at Bedford Cottage, a very big thank you to Andrew & Carol, who made us feel very welcome & such a friendly couple. The cottage had everything one would need & expect. The area of Buckland Monochrome it's self was just lovely; although a tad too tight for me at certain parts of the road, but that's Devon for you!
Thanks Carol & Andrew
