From the owner

Nestled at the very heart of Exmoor National Park is 'The Old Forge', a traditional and beautifully presented 2 bedroom cottage available for holiday lets all year round.

This newly renovated picture postcard cottage is situated in the quaint village of Exford. It is well-equiped and cosy with one master bedroom and a twin room along with a spacious living area and kitchen.

To the rear of the cottage is a private patio overlooking the stream leading onto the river exe, as well as a beautiful countryside view. The patio is fully equipped with wooden furniture and a small BBQ, so entertaining in this private haven is second to none.

The Old Forge is situated opposite one local pub and a short walk from another, both of which serve an extensive menu. Additionally, the village store is across from the property and the Post Office a few doors away.
Within a short drive you can see the stags or Exmoor Ponies on the moors. You can even take an Exmoor Safari from the local pub! Or just relax along the scenic North Devon and Somerset cost line, with the nearest beach being only a 20 minute drive away.

Whatever the occasion for your holiday, Exford is the perfect location and staying in this beautiful cottage in the heart of it all, will ensure you have the perfect holiday!

So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Apologies if you didn't find the cottage very warm, it's been a particularly cold winter down in Exford, but will ensure the heaters are turned up to the maximum in future cold spells. We hope to see you back in the future. Kind regards, Tess
