Exford, Exmoor National Park, England
The Old Forge is the original Blacksmith's workshop and even now being the beautiful cosy holiday cottage that it is, it still includes many of the original features. This two bedroom holiday cottage is nestled at the heart of Exmoor National Park in the quaint village of Exford. It is available to let all year round, for long or short breaks, making it the ideal location for families as well as for hunting, shooting ad horse riding holidays.
The cottage is well-equipped and cosy, in a prime location for exploring Exmoor, as well as the scenic North Devon and Somerset coast. Within a short drive you can see the Stags or Exmoor Ponies on the moors. You can even take an Exmoor Safari from the local pub!
Whatever your requirements the Old Forge Cottage and Exmoor itself will not disappoint!

Very comfy cottage, real home from home. Clean with all that you need for a fantastic holiday exploring Exmoor. Parking is easy either outside cottage but we preferred parking in free car park behind the cottage. Great to have two modren bathrooms, and the WiFi was a real bonus to my teenage son! Both pubs are great with friendly people...

Management response:

So pleased you enjoyed your holiday at The Old Forge Adele. We very much look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Best regards, Tess
