About the Owner

The Forest Country Cottages is owned and managed by ourselves Paul and Michelle Martin. Both of us are keen to promote environmentally friendly facilities and we have installed a biomass boiler, solar thermal and solar PV. Michelle is a vet and looks after an ever increasing number of animals at The Forest. We have a number of pets which include Libby our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, 3 ducks and 5 Badger Faced Sheep in the paddock. Organic produce is very important to the Martin family so we have free range chickens for eggs.

"Thank you so much for a such a lovely stay in Forest Keep. The cottage was superb and we were delighted with the quality and finish of everything provided and it was great to have a downstairs room for my mother. Thanks again " Cathy



" We really enjoyed our New Year break in our cottage and it was great to be able to link through to our family next door. We loved having the log burner, the kids were thrilled to have a Christmas tree and WIFI was a real plus. We hope to come back and stay again very soon." Antoine
