Silas the Silo

Hello all! Sorry we have been so quiet recently, Tim has been busy over the winter making The Old Forge’s next creation! Say hello to Silas the Silo, a gazebo/BBQ hut. A £100 grain silo rescued from the local farms skip. All made with upcycled materials. A haven for our Glamping guests to BBQ and keep toasty warm with the fire pit. Coming soon accompanied with a hot tub so you can bathe under the stars… watch this space!

Rosie is now sold!

Rosie has now found a new home, and will be off on the 8th July to her new home. She will be going to a lovely couple called Chris and Rosie, who plan to keep Rosie going on her Glamping adventures in Hertfordshire. This is your last chance to stay in Rosie at The Old Forge before she leaves us!

Rosie for Sale

Regrettably, due to semi-retiring and other exciting plans for The Old Forge, Rosie our beloved Gypsy Caravan is up for sale! Fully wired with optional heat and lighting. Rosie is a current thriving Glamping unit.

End of B&B…

Up until the end of October 2018, Lucy has decided to hang up her apron after 30 years of serving homemade breakfast to her guests! The last six years we have been awarded the Gold taste of the West award and now want to spend more time with our seven grandchildren Darcie, Zola, Willow, Kitty, Iris, Primrose and baby Ralphie! All our accommodation is now self catering.
