“Extremely comfortable and well appointed cottage”
Reviewed 20 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We were two couples ( one with a young baby) who decided to get away from London between Christmas and New Year. Forge Cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Extremely modern and comfortable and enough room for you not to feel on top of each other, especially when the weather didn't lend itself to being outside. Especially useful was the provision of wifi.

“Lovely cottage and great owners”
Reviewed 14 December 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The cottage is very well equipped and very clean. Has own parking area and fencing. The farm is working, so expect some noise early in the morning but never was a problem in the evening or at night.

The owners are very accommodating and always happy to help.

I would totally recommend this property as it is rural and isolated but also close to reasonable roads and you can quickly get to Bury and surrounding towns / attractions.

“Excellant, recommended to anyone travelling to the area”
Reviewed 10 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

stunning settings, outstanding cottage but OMG the noise....... there wasn't ANY except the sounds of chickens, pigeons and nature. we saw deer and foxes our daughter (7) was amazed and loved the stay, if you have a need to be in Bury ST Edmunds this would be the place to stay, the cottage has everything you would need the "local" serves excellant food and beers and town is a couple miles away.

“Lovely cottage, surrounded by beautiful scenery.”
Reviewed 6 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed at Forge cottage for 5 days at the end of May to visit family in Bury. It was a very short drive from the cottage to Bury, and there was a really good pub down the road.

The cottage itself was lovely inside, clean, modern and well furnished, with a high chair and portable crib for our little one. The owner was extremely helpful, when we needed a washing-up brush, he showed up with one really quickly.
The location is stunning with rolling hills and lots of room for a toddler to run around in.

Next time we're back in Bury we'll definitely stay here again.
