This delightful cosy holiday cottage is situated in the picturesque little village of Horsebridge in the beautiful Tamar Valley on the banks of the River Tamar and is the perfect couples retreat. Adjacent to the owners’ home, The Old Forge has a pretty and well-furnished interior with a lovely light living area that opens into a sunny rear garden, the perfect spot for breakfast whilst you plan your day. As the name implies, this cottage was formerly the forge and stable for travellers stopping off at the inn. The long stone bridge at Horsebridge dates back to the 1400s. This delightful village is right on the Devon/Cornwall border making it ideal to tour this stunning area. There are lovely walks along the Tamar Valley Discovery Trail from the doorstep and why not stop off at the 15th century Royal Inn in the village where Charles I is reputed to have visited during the civil war. It is an ideal spot for some liquid refreshment after a walk or an evening meal after a day out exploring. Horsebridge is in a superb location from which you can explore the wider region, and there is a great selection of restaurants within a short drive or why not visit the historic market towns of Tavistock and Launceston. There are several National Trust properties in the area and lots of interesting places to visit close by. The area has golf, fishing and horse riding available nearby. Beach 22 miles. Shop 4½ miles, pub 20 yards and restaurant 20 yards.

    Comfy warm cottage near plenty of walks for dogs and people. Owners friendly and helpful local pub (next door but one) welcoming to dogs and people and provide very good food.
