Tariff & Availability
My partner and I had a lovely stay at the Old Forge with our dog Penny at the end of August. Very comfortable little cottage, practical little kitchen, good showerroom and the snug upstairs on the mezzanine was great to unwind in the evening. Ruan Lanihorne is a lovely quiet village, barely any traffic and a short walk to the pub where we had some nice fresh fish from their specials board. We'd recommend the Roseland Peninsula to anyone looking for a relaxing but active holiday in Cornwall without the crowds.
We arrived at this cottage at the end of January with our dog Dooey for a weeks holiday. We were welcome with a very warm, cosy cottage with complementary tea, coffee milk and cookies. Really lovely touch.
The weather was pretty awful all week but we came back to the cottage every evening, lit the wood burner and dried off ready for the next rainy day.
The cottage was very well equipped and a joy to stay in. Very cosy and warm. The village had a lot of lovely walks around it and easy to get to other areas of interest. Might go back in the summer when the weather is better!
We had a very comfortable stay here, loved the village and our trip to Tregothnan Gardens open day. The walk along to Sett Bridge is beautiful.
