sehr gemütliche Ferienwohnung mit tollen Gasteltern
"The Forge" hält alles, was das Angebot versprochen hat, und mehr (W-LAN, Meerblick von der Terrasse, Sauberkeit, Wassertemperatur beim Duschen, Küche, alles top!) . Wir wurden sehr warmherzig empfangen (mit cream-tea!!) und hatten einen wunderschönen Aufenthalt in Cornwall. Lizard ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um Cornwall kennen zu lernen, - die umliegenden Fischerdörfchen, die fantastischen Küsten, die netten Menschen - all dies machte unsere Ferien zu einem runden Erlebnis. Einen ganz besonderen Dank geht an die Gasteltern, deren Gastfreundlichkeit ich sicherlich noch einmal in Anspruch nehmen werde, beim nächsten Besuch in Cornwall.

Süßes Cottage mit Meeresblick
Meine Tochter und ich haben in dieser kleinen aber feinen Ferienwohnung eine unvergessliche Woche verbracht. Sie ist mit allem Nötigen ausgestattet, sehr sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet. Zu den Klippen sind es 5 Minuten zu Fuß, von dort aus kann man verschiedene kleine Küstenwanderungen unternehmen. Wir wurden sehr warmherzig aufgenommen und mit einem typischen "Cream Tea" begrüßt. Zum nächstgrößeren Ort Helston gibt es eine Busverbindung, allein die Busfahrt dorthin ist schon ein Erlebnis! Ich kann diese Ferienwohnung nur jedem wärmstens empfehlen!!!

Great Cottage, Perfect location for the Lizard area
We loved this small cottage with great views of the countryside and sea. There was everything you would expect in a holiday home and more e.g. tea, coffee, milk, washing up liquid & cloths, handwash, a good hairdryer plus a delicious cream tea on arrival. The place was spotless. We enjoyed walking the coastal paths and driving to other Lizard villages. Good area for excellent pasties, ice cream, cafes and pubs. The Witchball pub has good food - BBQ night, Steak night and you can even experience tasting a scary spider crab!! Thank you Ann and Nigel - hope to visit again!

Perfect and Relaxing
The Forge is a beautiful little cottage attached to the owners home. Ann and Nigel made us feel very welcome even though we arrived on Boxing Day. The cottage was lovely and warm and a welcome cream tea was awaiting our arrival. A lovely touch. The Forge is small and cosy with beautiful view across the field to to sea. The best view is from the large upstairs window from the cosy bedroom which also has a sofa and armchair. A couple of throws were also provided which made it all even more snugly. The cottage is ideally situated about 7 minutes walk from the coastal path at Church Cove in one direction and the all important pub in the other. The nearby 'Coast' cafe is a delightful place to go for a delicious breakfast. I would thoroughly recommend staying at The Forge for both a relaxing or walking holiday. We loved it and will return. Thank you Ann and Nigel.

The Forge is an ideal place for a couple to stay and visit the Lizard and surrounding area,you won't be disappointed .
We had a lovely holiday staying at the Forge the last week of September.As you have read the other reviews ,I won't repeat all the lovely things that people have said about it apart that they were spot on.What I will say is that if we return to this area in the future we wouldn't dream of staying at any other place .I will just add that everything that one would want such as tea bags,coffee,washing up liquid,towels,scones with jam and clotted cream,fantastic views of the countryside and a sea view in the distance are all supplied.A fantastic place to stay and the owners Ann and Nigel couldn't be more obliging,a lovely couple.

Fantastic location, and beautiful accomodation
Firstly I would like to thank Ann and Nigel for a fantastic break, they really have made a hidden jem. The Forge is situated in a quite area with great connectivity to all the Lizard has to offer. It was great to enjoy the peace and quiet in great surroundings, enjoying a beer on the patio while watching the sea in the distance. We had several evening strolls down to Church Cove and around the coastal path. Many thanks!

A hidden gem, total rest and relaxation. The pictures don't do this place justice, it's just beautiful. So cosy, clean and well maintained. Lovely gift of a cream tea, fresh milk, flowers and chocolates. Lovely local pub, great walks. Looking forward to returning soon.
