Due to the The Forge structure being a mix of canvas roller blinds, natural stone and timber decking, the living area is more open to the elements than that of a sealed building. The result is that on your stay here, you’re likely to encounter a few creepy crawlies and extra drafts. Should this be of concern, we suggest that you opt for one of the self-catering cottages instead.
