    This delightful cosy holiday cottage is situated in the picturesque little village of Horsebridge in the beautiful Tamar Valley on the banks of the River Tamar and is the perfect couples retreat. Adjacent to the owners’ home, The Old Forge has a pretty and well-furnished interior with a lovely light living area that opens into a sunny rear garden, the perfect spot for breakfast whilst you plan your day. As the name implies, this cottage was formerly the forge and stable for travellers stopping off at the inn. The long stone bridge at Horsebridge dates back to the 1400s. This delightful village is right on the Devon/Cornwall border making it ideal to tour this stunning area. There are lovely walks along the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail from the doorstep and why not stop off at the 15th century Royal Inn in the village where Charles I is reputed to have visited during the civil war. It is an ideal spot for some liquid refreshment after a walk or an evening meal after a day out exploring. Horsebridge is in a superb location from which you can explore the wider region, and there is a great selection of restaurants within a short drive or why not visit the historic market towns of Tavistock and Launceston. There are several National Trust properties in the area and lots of interesting places to visit close by. The area has golf, fishing and horse riding available nearby. Beach 22 miles. Shop 4½ miles, pub 20 yards and restaurant 20 yards.

    "Our second visit to the Old Forge and it was just as delightful as we remembered it. A warm welcome from the owners and everything you could wish for in the cottage. It was spotlessly clean. The Royal Inn next door but one serves excellent food for nights when you don't feel like cooking."
    NICky ‐ 6 Apr 2019
    "Absolutely loved the cottage and Will certainly be recommending to family and friends. Everything you could possibly need was provided along with a welcome bottle of wine, fudge and even dog treats. Superb."
    Caroline ‐ 2 Dec 2018
    "Without doubt one of the best holiday homes we have staid in. Couple who own the Old Forge very helpful and friendly. House very comfortable with everything needed for a relaxing break. Patio area to sit out in and felt private. Excellent pub a few doors away and fresh eggs sold at the house opposite. Great location for exploring Cornwall and Devon."

    "Comfy warm cottage near plenty of walks for dogs and people. Owners friendly and helpful local pub (next door but one) welcoming to dogs and people and provide very good food."

    "The Old Forge is a Gem of a Cottage, Nic and Lance are to be congratulated on its presentation and facilities."
    Andrew ‐ 11 Aug 2018
    "Very pleased with the overall standard of the cottage. Lovely place to stay with or without a dog. Lance and Nic have got it just right. Very friendly but not intrusive.I would definately recommend this cottage and would definately stay there again. Plenty of walks nearby with plenty of information supplied at the cottage. Lovely wetroom and a perfectly adequate kitchen catering for your every need.Lots of little extras which you might need. Well equipped kitchen. Lovely dog friendly pub next door. Good food and nice friendly landlord. Locals also very friendly. Peaceful location with no noise from the pub. Only downside is no local shop and narrow lanes to get to property. But this would not put us off going again. Highly recommend!!"

    "Lovely cottage situated in a beautiful, quaint village, alongside the River Tamar. Perfect for exploring Dartmoor, Devon, Cornwall... Added bonus of a fantastic, independent pub 2 doors down.Despite the rural setting, it's only 10 minutes to the nearest shop (Tesco). Very easy to get to the beautiful town of Tavistock.We will return :-)"

    Georgina ‐ 24 Jun 2018
    "Really enjoyed our stay and the dog loved it as well"
    Roxanne ‐ 3 Jun 2018
    "We enjoyed our stay at The Old Forge very much. The enclosed garden is very peaceful to sit in and a great space for a dog to safely hang out! The accomodation was very comfortable and in a very beautiful setting. We enjoyed being so close to the River Tamar and a short drive from Dartmoor."
    Justine ‐ 26 May 2018
    "What a fantastic place! Perfect location, great hosts. We could feel ourselves unwind a little more each day. Thank you so much for a great stay. Even the pooch had a smile on her face. Wonderful."
    Lance ‐ 8 May 2018
    "We had a great stay here. Great location and great pub and great for the dog with a safe enclosed garden. The hosts Nic and Lance were wonderful. The cottage area may be small but they have got all the rooms tastefully furnished that makes it very homely. I would highly recommend. It is out of the way but thats what makes it so peaceful and your only 10 mins from the shops in Callington. We took eggs but don't has the house across from the Forge sells free range. Lots of nearby walks for your pooch."
