I have stayed at this B&B a few times now because I have such a great experience whenever I go. The rooms are very comfortable with excellent bathrooms. The breakfasts are always delicious and there's plenty to choose from and there's a very pleasant conservatory to sit in and read which is very relaxing :) Juliet and the family who...

A real find! This very homely and immaculate accommodation (in house or "Fosters" annex) is accompanied by a warm welcome and excellent service from Juliet and her family. Very well placed for town centre, off street parking a real benefit. Why go home after a day at the races when you can stay here?

I have been staying in Southwell at the Old Forge B&B regularly for the last 5 years. I have found my stays like being at home; the rooms are always warm and clean and the breakfasts excellent. Added to this Juliet and Nikki are very friendly and always helpful, and a good laugh!

Stayed in the Fosters bedroom which was a very pleasant twin bedded unit separate from the main house. Parking was sparse with tight access and you may have to park on the one way street at the front of the building. Walking distance to the market and pubs. Recommend the Rodney for eating. Very friendly staff. Would go back.

Thank judiloo2k
