Holiday Cottage Guest Comments

Recommended by Adcote School - Shropshire Boarding School for Girls.

After hearing wonderful comments about The Old Forge, from both lecturers and parents, by the headmaster of Adcote School. We are delighted to say that becuase of this, Adcote School now recommend us to others.


"Wendy and Colin made our 3rd stay at The Old Forge, once again, a delightful and memorable experience. The Forge is a charming base for visiting some of the most breathtaking and beautiful spots in the UK. We loved the welcoming 'local' next door which serves great pub grub and drinks at a price that won't break the bank!. The Old Forge is full of character, splendidly equipped and the warm welcome (and magnificent hamper) generously provided by Wendy and Colin along with many kindnesses will long be remembered. We hope they will allow us to visit them again later in the year. Thanks a million"

Jacqui and Lyn - Middlesex

"Our 6th visit in this gorgeous cottage, this is our favourite part of the country. Colin and Wendy as always have ensured our stay was amazing. The extra little touches make it so special. Loving the comfy chair at the top of the stairs (Derek loved it!). We managed to get the Snowdon train to the summit, watch Shrewsbury Town play footie and visit Powis Castle to name a few. Had lovely food and drink all over Shropshire. Thanks again. X"
