A tasteful, quirky and spacious home for five in an idyllic spot with all mod cons including dishwasher and coffeemaker. The wood burners were fantastic during our wet and windy stay

The welcome pack of milk and homemade cake was very much appreciated, we were able to buy other essentials - bread, butter, tea, coffee etc locally when we arrived. For a winter holiday you need to be prepared to use the wood burners especially in the kitchen as it is quite cold without them. We were pleasantly surprised at how big and comfortable the cottage was and enjoyed the luxury of underfloor heating in the bathroom.

This was our first cottage we have had with our young dog and, never quite knowing what to expect from a ‘doggie cottage’ it was brilliant. Immaculately clean, really well equipped and a great location for us to meet our Ivybridge based friends. The wood burners were a real feature and kept us toasty warm on a really cold (weather wise) weekend!

My family and dog stayed at Old Forge for a very wet week at the end of November. Absolutely loved the cottage, a very cosy retreat with two long burners. The location was perfect with Plymouth and Dartmoor both easy to drive to. Nice dog walks along the river into the village, owners were really friendly and welcoming. Really did not want to leave!

Lovely and peaceful location. Next to a river with outdoor seating to appreciate the surroundings with a glass of wine or cup of tea. Walking distance to the village pub and shops. Central location for exploring Dartmoor and Devon’s coastline. Owners were lovely and had a homemade delicious cake waiting for us on arrival.

The cottage is lovely and feels very opulent. It is situated in a lovely quiet area next to the river. We had a lovely week exploring the surrounding area and towns. South Brent village is in walking distance and has a couple of good convenience stores, including the village store, which even had home made gluten free products.
