A splendid area just outside the main house where you can sit outside with a glass of wine, gazing at the stars, enjoying the company of friends and family. Or why not light the Fire Pit and play your favourite music...past guests have spent many evenings chatting and singing the night away!!
There are some wonderful spots to have a meal at The Forge, whether you are sitting inside in the breakfast room or dining room, outside on one of the wonderful terraces or having a picnic on the lawn. Alternatively enjoy a wander through the stunning grounds and find the perfect spot for you.
Beside the lake is a wonderful fruit and vegetable garden growing all manner of interesting things!
Stroll alongside the lake and see what fruit and vegetables are growing there. You are welcome to take and enjoy anything ready for harvesting with our compliments.
Take time out in the serenity of the studio with the sound of running water and birdsong to do your yoga/Pilates or pump the music up loud as you put yourself through your zumba paces. We have Pilates and yoga teachers who regularly visit the Forge upon request.
A recent addition to The Forge the gym is there for anyone keen to keep fit whilst they are in residence. It is equipped with a treadmill, rowing machine, bench, free weights, punch bag with boxing gloves and ab-frame.
Cool off in the pool. Relax and spread out on a sun lounger.
Our 15m x 8m swimming pool, in its own private area, is well served by a number of deck chairs, sun loungers and parasols. Its own pool house contains a WC and shower. Pool heating is also available for a small extra charge. Swim towels included.
