Right in the heart of the village, Forge Cottage is a traditional and beautiful thatched cottage.

The charming seaside towns of Seaton and Sidmouth are also within easy reach.

    Made enjoyable...

    The situation of Forge Cottage was almost unbeatable as far as we were concerned - only bettered when sited on an NT estate eg Fountains Abbey

    High standard of accommodation and facilities

    The quality of the accommodation and facilities is always of a high standard. Milk/tea/coffee available on arrival is most welcome. Organisation through booking to directions to key availability is faultless.
