"Comfortable accommodation, excellent food and welcome." The Old Forge has been tastefully up-dated with some lovely old features to be seen. The bedroom was comfortable with good facilities, en-suite bathroom was newly re-furbished and beautifully designed. Breakfast was among one of the best we've had anywhere- porridge cooked exactly as we'd asked, creamy scrambled eggs, etc. If you are staying, we thoroughly recommend including the evening meal option. We also opted for this, and are so glad we did! Absolutely delicious and beautifully presented." Julia - August 2010
