The Old Forge offers luxurious, comfortable and spacious Bed and Breakfast accommodation and optional Evening Meals.

6 guests in 3 bedrooms

The Old Forge nestles in the heart of the village of Bishops Tawton, near the market town of Barnstaple in North Devon. Guests are sure of a warm welcome, a great nights sleep and a hearty breakfast. Delicious 4 course evening meals and breakfasts are carefully prepared using fresh local produce – eggs from their own hens and much of the fruit and vegetables from the kitchen garden. Parts of the building date back to the 14th century, when it was the village blacksmith’s, with further, later additions. The owners, Julie and Ross , have lovingly restored and renovated to achieve a tasteful and comfortable blend of old features and modern convenience. The accommodation offers king size beds, en suite bathrooms and a cosy lounge with wood burner and a well-stocked bookcase.
