Would definitely recommend with no hesitation. Everything you could think of was supplied, lovely welcome basket, flowers and home made cake . My parents use walking sticks and there wasn't anywhere in the accommodation they had a problem with due to it all been on one level.Walk in shower in the bathroom for them a real bonus. Our family aged from 86 down to 4year old and there was something in there for everyone of us, games, dvd's. Fully equipped kitchen including washing/dryer machine, dishwasher, fantastic when there was 8 of us. Caroline made us feel very welcome when we arrived and not forgetting the wagging tale of Archie when we returned from our days out. Booked direct with Caroline, so much easier and each email was answered the same day.

From our own beautiful area to a new one - wonderful! Excellent accessible accommodation - the access statement was really helpful - and a great modern country feel. We've enjoyed meals out at The Three Tuns here in the village and The Star at Weaverthorpe, both of which were very good.Days out to Scampston Hall Garden, Castle Howard and Flamborough Head were very enjoyable. Also local trundles/walks were fun along quiet roads and bumpy tracks. Archie & The Donkeys (a new band?) provided four legged friends, and it's been good to chat with Caroline here and there. All in all, an excellent holiday in a beautiful location. Thank you very much! Liz & Richard. PS Welcome basket was lovely, especially the lemon cake!

We have really enjoyed our two weeks holiday in the lovely and well equipped Old Forge. The highlights of our visit were a visit to RSPB Bempton Cliffs, dining in the Pullman on The North York Moors Railway, York (so much to see there!) and the whole unspoilt landscape, plenty of lovely walks. A big 'thank you' to Caroline & Nigel for making us so welcome, the vast array of information provided & the much appreciated welcome pack.

We have had a lovely stay. The weather has been fantastic too! Quiz night at the pub welcoming, but we were rubbish! We've visited childhood places of happiness, Bridlington, Hornsea. The trip to Sledmere House is a must for future guests and only minutes away. A visit to Eden camp is a must for all ages. The cottage The cottage was very relaxing, beds comfy and welcome pack just that, 'Welcoming.' Thanks to you all.

Superbly comfortable and spacious accommodation, short of nothing with very welcoming hosts. The basket of goodies was much appreciated by the family. The renovation of The Old Forge is a credit to you Nigel & Caroline & you seem to have thought of everything. Thank you both so much for our most enjoyable stay with our Australian family. Neville & Hazel, Alison & Shayne Summers, Liam & Sam

Thank you Nigel & Caroline for a warm welcome and for allowing us to stay in this beautiful place. This has been the perfect base to explore North Yorkshire. You have thought of every convenience and comfort. We've had a great time here. God bless you both.

We've had a lovely weekend, and the cottage has been an ideal place for our family get together. The flowers, cake, and birthday card were a lovely touch - thank you very much. We'll be sorry to say goodbye to Archie!

Very high standard of accommodation. Well equipped for up to 8 persons, very clean, comfortable and warm. Good off road parking and control spot for exploring North Yorks Moors and surrounding area.
