We stayed here in June for a short 3 day weekend break. We all agree that the one word to sum up our stay was "amazing". The cottage is well equipped and beautifully situated in the quiet village of West Lutton but there are so many great places to visit and see within 30 minutes drive. I would personally highly recommend a visit to RSPB Bempton Cliffs, which has great wheelchair access to see the cliffs and all the seabirds.
We were greeted on arrival and found a lovely food hamper and cake waiting for us. The accommodation is comfortable, a real "home-from-home" - all the local eatery suggestions were most welcome and all the ones we went to were very nice - booking a table at the Triton Inn is recommended though.
03 Jul 2023
A fabulous long weekend at The Old Forge. A very comfortable home-from-home and so quiet. Listening to the birdsong in the morning was a joy. We would highly recommend a visit to RSPB Bempton Cliffs, great wheelchair access. So many photos to go through - will need another weekend just to edit them all! If you are looking for a place to eat we would recommend The Triton Inn (book a table before going) and The Coach & Horses at Rillington. Thank You.

An amazing place to stay. The Old Forge is comfort & luxurious, very high standard. Warm, cosy and felt like home. A real Tardis was stunned how big the bedrooms are. The snow was unexpected, but made a picturesque village even prettier. Plenty of room to manoeuvre the wheelchair. Will be highly recommending a stay here for friends & family. Welcome pack was an added bonus and enjoyed the tasty lemon drizzle. Will definitely be book a longer stay. Thank you Caroline & Nigel for making our break the best and for being so welcoming. Hubby loved the bikes. All the best. Vivienne, Peter, Kia & Ash White.

We all had a fabulous time for our Christmas stay. We visited Filey, Scarborough and Malton calling in at Castle Howard on our way home. The Old Forge is beautiful, we were pleasantly surprised, couldn't have wished for anything better. All of the rooms were nicely furnished and equipped making for a really cosy stay. Great touch having all the information to hand. PS Twas my husband who ate all the mince pies, not Santa! Thank you for all the lovely food gifts! We really appreciated them. We are really looking forward to our next visit to The Old Forge! Thank You again The Townsends

Caroline & Nigel, you have transformed this place. So comfortable with everything we could have needd, and a lovely welcome pack too. Weather was lovely so great trips to York, Scarborough, Pickering & Thornton Dale. Fun at Eden Camp Museum and also enjoyed Nunnnington Hall. Going home feeling relaxed & refreshed! Thanks!

We've had a lovely relaxing week, the weather has been great. The cottage is great, with everything we needed for our stay. We visited Scarborough, Malton, Filey and Bridlington (although don't think we'll go to Bridlington again.) We've been to a couple of pubs. Would definitely recommend The Dawnay Arms, very good food portions, but book a table as they get very busy (even on a Thursday). Thank you Caroline for the warm welcome and the lovely lemon drizzle cake, which we all enjoyed. Thanks again.

We have had a lovely week in a lovely part of Yorkshire (which of course is a lovely part of England) based in a lovely cottage.
Well appointed and of obvious high quality it is one of those places you want for yourself and not have to leave. Gorgeous weather meant country walks were brilliant particularly with abundant wildlife hares, buzzards, kestrel, stoats, voles beautiful butterflies and more. Trails and paths are easy to follow and Wold Rangers Paths are very interesting.
Welcome Pack, flowers, cake - what more can you ask for?

Very enjoyable week. Lovely accommodation with everything we needed. Stunning countryside especially the wild flowers & poppies. The grandchildren loved watching the hares in the field.

Really good cottage, has everything. Not everything open at this time of year, so we looked to the coast, Whitby down to Filey. Snow as we are leaving, which makes the views very different. Thanks for having us. Will & Chris

Although our best laid plans of a 'meet up' with family were thwarted, we enjoyed a lovely break on The Yorkshire Wolds, revisiting many remembered places.

We've had a wonderful relaxing stay. Thank you so much for the welcome pack. The lemon drizzle cake was amazing! As support workers it's been lovely to support a gentleman on holiday, he has loved it especially the beautiful beaches. The bathroom would benefit from having handrails, but we managed and we would definitely bring someone else we support here in the future. Archie is amazing we could take him home!!

It's been a peaceful place for us to unwind and we have had lots of fun visiting York and the surrounding area. Thank you for the gorgeous welcome basket and cake which was very much appreciated.
Yeah that lemon drizzle cake was next level good! Only problem was it went very fast....
We will have to return in winter when we can try out the log fire.

A big thank you to Caroline & Nigel for a warm welcome. You couldn't have been more helpful. The Old Forge was a great place to stay. Although 'Covid' curtailed a bigger family get together to celebrate my mother's 90th Birthday, we were still able to visit some wonderful places. The countryside views are amazing. A real nostalgia trip was had by all of us. The Old Forge is well appointed and very clean. Beds very comfortable too! The welcome pack and delicious drizzle cake a wonderful and thoughtful touch. The weather was surprisingly very good. We will be telling all our friends this is a great place to stay for a visit in North Yorkshire, so long as you have transport.

The first time we have ventured far since Covid-19 struck, and we couldn't have landed in a better place! Excellent standard of accommodation - everything one could want (except a lemon squeezer). The King Size Bed was particularly comfortable - I had to stop my husband from trying to smuggle it home! Wonderful, rolling cycling country gave us some great rides, with only one wet day the whole week. The goody- basket and lemon cake were much appreciated.

We have had a most enjoyable holiday here in The Old Forge. The weather has been mostly sunny & dry and the accommodation first class! The only possible improvement would be a grab-bar in the shower and a non-slip shower mat. Thank you for the welcome basket & the delicious cake, much appreciated.

Thanks for a very comfortable cottage - and especially the yummy cake. We have made the most of our few days knowing we had a well equipped cottage to return to each day.

Thank you for a lovely, comfortable stay, you have been so friendly & helpful. We have spent a fantastic 2 weeks in North Yorks, so much to do for the whole family. Stevey & Tony at The Three Tuns have been brilliant and we have especially enjoyed the Sunday Lunch & the quiz night (we would recommend to everyone staying). They are very accommodating, great food, lovely welcoming atmosphere & child friendly. The Old Forge has been a comfortable place to stay, comfy beds, spacious & well equipped (could do with a bigger kitchen bin for the 5 of us as we were emptying it every day or two) but a minor issue! We have absolutely loved staying here and will recommend it whole-heartedly. Hope to come back again in the future. 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️and an extra one ⭐️for the scrumptious lemon drizzle cake!

Thanks for the lovely stay for our multi-generational family! Loved the welcome basket of local goodies (consumed all within the first day...!!) We were lucky enough to spot a barn owl flying across the church from the kitchen window - we would also recommend going to Bempton Cliffs to spot Puffins too! We found it very comfortable and suitable for wheelchair access - thank you!

The perfect place for our family get-together, with a great welcome from Nigel & Caroline, with delicious lemon drizzle cake and Yorkshire goodies. We enjoyed walks in the neighbouring countryside including around Castle Howard and a dramatic drive over The North York Moors to Whitby on Halloween, where we encountered a few Goths. Your comfortable and well equipped cottage welcomed us back each day for a relaxing evening. Thank you Caroline & Nigel. Josephine, Martin, Agnes, Ben, Hannah, Federico & Tom.

From our own beautiful area to a new one - wonderful! Excellent accessible accommodation - the access statement was really helpful - and a great modern country feel. We've enjoyed meals out at The Three Tuns here in the village and The Star at Weaverthorpe, both of which were very good.Days out to Scampston Hall Garden, Castle Howard and Flamborough Head were very enjoyable. Also local trundles/walks were fun along quiet roads and bumpy tracks.
Archie & The Donkeys (a new band?) provided four legged friends, and it's been good to chat with Caroline here and there. All in all, an excellent holiday in a beautiful location. Thank you very much! Liz & Richard. PS Welcome basket was lovely, especially the lemon cake!

Excellent warm family accommodation , all on one floor and with a choice of appropriate sized beds, two bathrooms, and a large table. Friendly helpful owners next door with a lovely dog, Archie. The cottage coped well with 7 people in wet weather. Generous 'Welcome Basket' with fresh local eggs. Wonderful view of the church with well kept grounds and sounds of the rooks in the local trees. It is everything it advertises to be.

Superbly comfortable and spacious accommodation, short of nothing with very welcoming hosts. The basket of goodies was much appreciated by the family.

All were impressed with the cottage, which is fitted out to the highest standard and spacious enough for everyone. Cooking, eating and socialising for seven is never easy, here the layout provided space for all such activities. Access and provision for elderly and disabled was excellent (ramp, all rooms on one floor and walk in shower).
Location is a little off the main roads but this was compensated by quiet roads and lovely views as we headed out to other attractions.
Local pub was very welcoming though need to check when open.

A lovely little village with an easy to find building next to a quiet church. We were met on our arrival by Caroline , who escorted us around and explained everything. We especially liked the tourist standard info section for local attractions and places to eat and drink, the comfortable beds and luxury linen, convenient for the local pub.

Everything you could need and set out well. Plenty of space and the games were used on the only wet-weather day we had. (This was a blessing because we visited lots of places each day, coast and moorland , Abbeys and Castles, pubs and restaurants ...a rest day was welcome) The tourist information within the Forge is excellent and helped us plan our days out with lots of options.
11 Aug 2017
Facilities at Old Forge cottage are first class. We were only able to stay 3 nights but beds very comfortable and 'welcome pack' just what we needed. We enjoyed driving through Hockney Yorkshire countryside and made the most of good access to coast. A lovely stay in clean well-appointed accommodation.

First of all, the beds and free Wifi were excellent. We had a wonderful time here, enjoying the stream and exploring the local village & countryside. While staying at the cottage, we enjoyed the wide variety of board games, and the fireplace entertained many of us pyromaniacs. Monopoly really stood out, along with the pubs, and long mile countryside walks. Thought the DVD's provided were amazing especially Harry Potter. Our three enjoyable days are going to be remembered through history in our minds (especially the fireplace).

This is a beautiful cottage - totally luxurious and a great location for exploring York, The Coast and Countryside. A sad week, bringing my Dad's remains home to Yorkshire, but some very happy memories too. The cottage was fantastically equipped for 3 generations, including someone with very limited mobility - we would highly recommend it and hope to return some day. Sally & Jason Lowther, Joel, Toby, Kirsten, & Elsa Lowther & Joan Wilson We had an awesome time at The Old Forge. I loved Scarborough. Archie is the cutest dog ever. One of the best weeks holiday and the best cottages ever. Totally relaxing. Loved it. Hope to come back soon.' Elsa Aged 10

We have had a really enjoyable stay at The Old Forge, the property was ideal for my family with large clean rooms and well maintained facilities. The location was convenient to both York and The Coast, all the drives through The Wolds were a pleasure. The information regarding local activities, attractions were well informed and so versatile that in some instances it was hard for us all to agree on the same activity. Caroline & Nigel were great landlords and if we were unable to find the information needed in their good instruction book they were more than happy to advise us. The accommodation was so good we were as happy to stay in as go out on planned excursions. I would certainly recommend it to my friends and family.

The cottage is amazing. Lovely place to stay. We were able to get into all tourist destinations. Very conveniently stocked for a short break away. We had a super time here, the accommodation was all we needed. I like the bedrooms & the en-suite. We loved being here for summer term, we were able to enjoy orselves, for making dinner & playing games. I really liked the kitchen.The cottage seemed good for holidays, I'm glad there were lots of things we could do in the cottage, there was plenty of room for 8 of us.

We spent bank holiday weekend at The Old Forge and it was perfect for us! A lovely welcome from Caroline on the Friday evening and we all felt instantly at home. Lovely bedrooms, v comfy beds, really good showers, and everything you could ever need in the kitchen and open plan dining/lounge area, we had the perfect surroundings for us to relax as a group of friends. Plenty of space for 8 people in a cottage on one floor and the underfloor heating made it nice and cosy.
A 45minute drive on the Saturday and we were in York, a 30minute drive on Sunday and we were in Scarborough, so it was a great location for us for two day trips. We'd booked a private room at The Blue Bell Inn (recommended on The Old Forge website by Caroline) for dinner on the Saturday evening, where we had brilliant food at very reasonable prices.
I can't recommend this place enough and wouldn't hesitate in going back another time.

We've had an amazing stay and the house was in the perfect place to enjoy all the surroundings. Beautiful rooms and a well quipped kitchen. The welcome basket was lovely and it was the perfect place to spend Easter.

A big 'thank you' to Caroline & Nigel for making us so welcome, the vast array of information provided & the much appreciated welcome pack.

A lovely clean comfortable cottage ideal for 4 generations aged 20mths - 92 yrs. Archie was a great favourite. Old Star Inn at Kilham was a great Sunday Lunch with a garden for children to run about in. Would have liked a small area of grass in garden for children to sit on, otherwise a perfect holiday.

The perfect meeting point between Edinburgh & Surrey – a beautifully done holiday rental, we really appreciated how cosy it felt & the lovely thick towels & comfy beds.The kids loved the mini railway, & The Sea Life Centre (good fish & chips on the way back at Harpers near shell garage on A64). Playdale Farm brilliant for the kids, especially in wet weather. The only thing missing was the opportunity to stroll across the road for a pint, but hopefully the pub will have a new owner soon! Thank you for a lovely stay!Jo, Grant, Ruairidh, Louise, Mark, William & Ben.

Thanks very much for a lovely stay.The lodge is clean & comfortable and has served as an ideal base for our holiday. We've been very lucky with the weather - only one significant downpour on Scarborough beach and there's been glorious sunshine for the rest of the time. Thanks also for the welcome pack - Paul polished off the beer & biscuits, and I loved the jam & Yorkshire tea! The only slight disappointment was that the Three tuns has closed down - we were looking forward to strolling over for a bit of calm in the evenings! Many thanks.
