The Forge was originally the Rousdon Estate's blacksmith's forge.

This listed Victorian building has been completely refurbished in a Tuscan farmhouse style, offering very high quality accommodation with a wealth of character. Features include huge beams and cathedral ceilings, terracotta flooring, real slate kitchen tops and a huge Tuscan style fireplace incorporating a large cast iron stove.

This spacious property offers two double bedrooms, one on the ground floor via a short flight of steps, and the other on an open mezzanine floor above the lounge area. Both bedrooms offer ensuite shower and w.c. facilities. The lounge also has a double sofa bed adding flexibility to sleeping arrangements.

The large open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area offers dinner seating for 8, as well as a second seating area in front of the large wood-burning stove. A welcome pack for your arrival ensures a great start to your holiday and will include milk, tea and a selection of locally sourced produce and treats. Outside there is a gravelled patio area complete with outdoor log burner and garden furniture. Ideal for the glass of wine before dinner!

The Forge is part of the beautiful and historic Rousdon Estate, set on the stunning Jurassic coast, part of the World Heritage coastline. The estate sits on the Devon and Dorset border just five minutes by car from Lyme Regis. The area is a haven for wildlife and the estate grounds cover 350 acres of pasture and woodland and also boasts a private beach accessed via a very steep cliff path.

About Devon (Rousdon)

If you really want to escape the treadmill and wind down in complete peace, few locations are as perfect as Rousdon. At 500 feet above sea-level the walks and views are breath-taking, and the village bakery & coffee house and the famous Dower House Hotel are open for meals, drinks and light refreshments. Or you could venture the two miles to Lyme Regis and sample some of the many restaurant options, such as seafood at Hix Fish & Oyster House. Nearby Axminster, home to the famous River Cottage HQ, is also worth a visit.
