“A wonderfully cosy cottage”
Reviewed 20 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Rosamund provided a great couple of days break away in her cottage, starting with a warm welcome. We only had two days and had everything we needed. Cosy, warm and clean with a very comfortable bed. The village was quiet and there were numerous fantastic walks straight from the door of the cottage. There was a good amount of detailed tourist literature, a local map, and printed walk guides. We loved it.

“Cosy & relaxing”

We spent the week around New Year at Forge - a very well-equipped, warm, cosy cottage. It is in the middle of Wootton Courtenay, a very quiet village, just off the Minehead-Porlock road, with a small community-owned shop & Post Office and a walkers paradise. The friendly, welcoming owners are just next door if needed, but don’t intrude at all. Locals are friendly. Dog was fascinated by the horses that came past the cottage every morning. Off-road parking was very welcome. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay again if in the area.

Forge Holiday Cottage is in a picture perfect village with delightful owners and neighbours! The cottage is very cosy and ideal to return to after a fresh air filled day of walking and exploring the beautiful countryside of northern/coastal Exmoor. Endless well signed paths and walks straight from the cottage door, thereby making a perfect holiday for humans and dogs! Everything you could want in the cottage for comfort and easy living. We will certainly return.
