Nestled in the heart of the Cranborne Chase, The Old Forge is the perfect retreat for those looking to appreciate the slower pace of life. The 18th Century former Carriage and Wheelwrights workshops have been transformed to create two charming self-catering cottages with unique appeal. Constantly evolving, recent years have seen the introduction of Sam and Mabel the Shepherd's Huts and Rosie the 1934 Gypsy Caravan embracing the 'Glamping' revolution.

Tim and Lucy share their home with two dogs, a cat, two horses, one donkey and ten chickens! Pudding and Pie are both miniature Labaradoodles, and a very fluffy cat called Nala. Sam, Rosie and Mabel are kept company in the adjacent paddock by Scrumpy Jack the Donkey, Jasmine the Arabian and her young mare Lily. The chickens are free range in every sense of the word and never far from sight.

Tim and Lucy's passion for all things vintage is evident from the moment that you open the car door. In the yard old enamel signs and petrol pumps set the scene of a bygone era and the theme continues inside with a wood burning stove, retro radios, wonderful dolls houses and original fellows as remnants of the wheelwrights workshop displayed on the walls.

Glamping is also available in our two shepherds huts Mabel and Sam, and Rosie the gypsy caravan. The stress of modern day life is a distant memory here as you gaze across the scarp slopes of Melbury and Fontmell Down.
