A lovely property for a completely peaceful escape surrounded by beautiful gardens lovingly tended by the owners. Plenty of privacy and outside space and not an un-natural sound to be heard!!!! The Forge was perfect for our party this time which included a fragile 97 year old parent (who totally loved her stay).
Convenient for visiting Dartmoor and the coast. Mr and Mrs Jamie were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Excellent property and amenities but shame the WiFi was so very poor. You could only pick it up outside the property which is not ideal for planning days out, especially if it is raining!.

Thanks for reviewing The Forge. Leigh Farm is set on the eastern edge of Dartmoor National park and as such WiFi signal can unfortunately be a little patchy on occasion in some areas so we're sorry for any inconvenience. If WiFi access is an important feature to your holiday, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us and we'd be delighted to help you find something in the future. Bryony, Customer Support

More about the beautiful grounds and garden and the space for taking walks. Unfortunate the Forge is not very photogenic from the outside.

What a lovely place for a holiday. The Forge was a cosy cottage to come back to. The gardens are beautiful and a lovely place for sitting and enjoying the surroundings. The surrounding fields afford lovely views across the valley. We hope to come back to enjoy this gorgeous part of Devon again. Highly recommended.

It is such a lovely place central for everything

This is the second time we have stayed at the Forge in Leigh Farm. It really is a very cosy holiday cottage in a wonderful and peaceful location. It would be hard to find a more relaxing location. The complete farm complex is a real "Gem" and is owned and managed an extremely nice couple.

If you want a superb base to explore South Devon and completely unwind and relax, Leigh Farm is the spot !
It's a lovely, cosy and quiet location with a great local pub (The Palk Arms) just up the hill in Hennock and is close to Dartmoor and the coast with all it's attractions.The description on the website is spot on and it's just a lovely place to stay. The owners have done a great job in developing the the farm so far and we wish them the very best of luck in the future. We have told all our family and friends here in Norway (were we live) about how lucky we were to find such a wonderful holiday cottage and we look forward to booking again with Classic Cottages when we next visit South Devon.

A little piece of heaven on earth so tranquil
Mr Haslam June 2016
Lovely welcoming cottage and hosts. The cream tea on arrival was very welcome. Perfect base for exploring the beaches of Torbay and beyond, whilst being handy for the M5.
Mrs West August 2015
It is a nice, little cottage which is extremely comfortable and welcoming. Lovely to be able to walk around the farm and climb the hills on the property. Just a gorgeous place to relax in but also near enough to visit Dartmoor and its surrounding areas.
Mr Westwood December 2014
we booked both cottages one for our son and grandchildren and the Forge for my daughter and ourselves, when we arrived it was very inviting to say the least , wood burner going in both cottages and TV on and very warm cosy, The highlight was a christmas tree set up for us and very decorations around both cottages ,really nice idea to do for us which made the christmas holiday exciting , very enjoyable time in the Cob and the Forge, we had dinners in the forge together which sat 8 people which excellent.

Mrs Owen August 2014
A wonderful cosy cottage which we were able to relax & unwind in after a fabulous day out discovering all that the local area has to offer. We are already talking about our return.
Mrs Kozicky May 2014
Our group of ten stayed at both the Cobb and the Forge for seven nights. Both were very nice and provided everything we needed.
The forge was bright and pleasant with high ceilings and morning sun. The rooms were warm and cozy. The grounds were beautiful and well maintained.
We enjoyed a wonderful vacation and were able to explore much of the surrounding area during our stay.

It was only for 3 days that we stayed at the forge but it took all the stress of our daily lives away in only a few moments. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. Beautyfull countryside and near to places where the action is taking place. A big yes for me. Ronald Veenhuizen, Utrecht, The Netherlands
