UPDATED INTERIOR PHOTOS TO BE ADDED SHORTLY
As the name would imply, this Grade II listed detached cottage was once the village forge. Recently converted, this character property has been transformed by the owner into a truly stunning, stylish, fabulous holiday retreat. Creatively furnished with an eclectic mix of old and new, the emphasis has been placed on style, comfort, peace and relaxation. Equally splendid is the wonderful, mature pretty south and west facing garden which stretches all around the rear of the cottage, and has the charm of a secret garden with 'hidden' areas to explore.

In the main part of the garden is a timber summer house with sofa, chairs, shelving and tables. Beyond the main lawn, is a further lawn with timber artist's studio and garden shed.

Binham is an historical village a few miles inland from Wells next the Sea. Binham is a really beautiful example of a traditional Norfolk village with the added attraction of the priory. The atmospheric 12th century Benedictine Priory has wonderful outdoor concerts in the summer. There is an excellent pub called The Chequers, that brews its own beer, a village shop and a very good butcher. Walking in the area is excellent and very peaceful, you can really escape the madding crowds without being too far away from the interesting local towns of Wells-Next-The-Sea or Blakeney. Only three miles inland from the coastal village of Stiffkey, The OldForge. is a perfect base from which to explore all the delights of this beautiful part of North Norfolk either on foot, by bike or by car.
