Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms with spacious living area in lovely village location.

The Old Forge Holiday Cottage is a single storey, luxury three bedroom Barn Conversion. The historic building has been sympathetically converted to the highest standards and retains many original features. With natural stone floors, exposed beamed ceilings and high quality furnishings, this is a character property with a spacious modern interior.

In equipping The Old Forge Holiday Cottage we have tried to provide everything you will need to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing holiday. All our furnishings and fixtures are of a high quality and we hope that it is our attention to detail that our guests will remember. If there is something we haven't considered please let us know!

Our high standards are reflected in the fact that The Old Forge Holiday cottage has been awarded a Four Star Rating from VisitEngland. For more information about the Quality Assessment Scheme please visit this link:

Situated in The Great Wold Valley alongside The Gypsey Race and overlooking an area of outstanding natural beauty, the Old Forge Holiday Cottage is ideally situated as a base for visiting the Yorkshire Wolds, The Yorkshire Coast, the North Yorkshire Moors and the City of York all of which are within 30 miles.

West Lutton is a picturesque village situated between the bustling market towns of Malton and Driffield. The views from The Old Forge of St Mary's Church are second to none. A couple of miles away in Weaverthorpe both The Blue Bell and The Star Inn are excellent choices for dining out, as is The Triton Inn at Sledmere.

Still Yorkshires best kept secret The Yorkshire Wolds are a range of low rolling hills which rise from the River Humber at Hessle and run in a crescent shape through stunning countryside to the dramatic cliffs at Flamborough Head and Bempton north of Bridlington. The gentle hills make it an ideal area for both walking and cycling. The area is unspoilt and rich in history and there are many historic houses and churches to visit. The chalk grassland of The Yorkshire Wolds is a rare habitat in Britain and is a haven for wildlife.

The Yorkshire Coast towns of Bridlington, Filey, & Scarborough are all less than 20 miles away, each offering a different experience for those of you who enjoy a day out at the Seaside. Do not miss a day out in the maritime town of Whitby, the inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula and now home to the annual Gothic Weekend.

The North York Moors railway based in the market town of Pickering just 15 miles away is the gateway to The North Yorkshire Moors. It offers 18 miles of steam railway running through spectacular moorland scenery. You can stop off in Goathland also known as Aidensfield in Yorkshire TV's Heartbeat and the bewitching Hogsmead in the first Harry Potter film.

The Historic City of York is just 25 miles from The Old Forge Holiday Cottage. Highlights include the majestic York Minster, The Jorvik Centre, York Castle Museum and The National Railway Museum. You can also explore many of York's hidden secrets which are often tucked away in the cobbled streets, snickets and snickleways.

About Caroline Bradshaw

I live here in the Yorkshire Wolds with my husband Nigel, our 2 teenage sons & our golden retriever Archie.

Caroline Bradshaw purchased this barn in 2001

Why Caroline Bradshaw chose Malton

We bought the property in 2001 as our family home. The single storey outbuilding which was once the village Forge initially served as a workshop for my husbands construction business. After several years of making improvements to the main house we turned our attention to the outbuildings, which were in a very bad state of repair. We decided to demolish the building completely & rebuild it using reclaimed materials. The result was The Old Forge holiday cottage. We love living in the Yorkshire Wolds & enjoy welcoming guests & introducing them to this little known area, which many of them describe as a hidden gem. The artist David Hockney continues to paint the unique landscape of The Wolds and we have some prints of his paintings in the cottage.

What makes this barn unique

The village is ideally located as a base for visiting the Yorkshire Coast, the market town of Malton, Pickering & The North York Moors & the City of York. There are literally hundreds of attractions to visit locally including many National Trust properties, Homes & Gardens such as Castle Howard, Scampston Estate, & Sledmere House, Museums including Eden Camp, The Yorvik Centre, & The National Railway Museum, & the North York Moors Railway. Children are well catered for, with Playdale Farm, Flamingoland, & the beaches at Scarborough & Bridlington. Malton is also becoming a centre for foodies with an annual Food Festival, several micro breweries & TV Chef James Martin at The Talbot Hotel. There are some very good eating places just a stones throw away from the cottage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Many thanks for another great visit to The Old Forge - a great base for exploring coast & countryside in glorious November weather. The accommodation here is excellent - warm cosy as the nights draw in, but it is all the extra touches that make a difference. Thank you very much."

November 2014

"Thank you for our stay in your lovely holiday cottage, everything was great. The location is perfect for loads of places to visit - too many to get around in a weekend. We all agree this cottage is the best we have stayed in & are unlikely to ever top it!! Best wishes for the future."

Notes:
The Old Forge is accessed via a wide vehicular bridge over the Gypsey Race. The building has probably the best view in the village overlooking the village church of St Mary's. Horses graze in neighbouring fields & the field across the road is home to several donkeys, which are a great hit with children! Archie the family dog is also a favourite with children & adults alike & loves to be made a fuss of. The village of West Lutton is surrounded by spectacular scenery & there are a number of walks which can be accessed locally, including parts of The Wolds Way. The Great Wold Valley Heritage Trail is a series of information boards in 9 villages including West Lutton, which covers 11.5 miles from Wharram-le-Street to Foxholes.

Perfect Location and Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks here with my parents. It's the perfect location to explore North Yorkshire. The setting is incredibly peaceful, surrounded by beautiful countryside, yet it's just a short distance to Yorkshire's attractions and fantastic coastal walks... lovely base to come back to after our day trips out. The house is beautifully comfortable and well-equipped and was absolutely spotless with quality linens and furnishings. There was a very generous welcome basket on our arrival full of locally sourced goodies. There is parking right outside and we loved the underfloor heating and log burning fire. For larger groups there are more rooms available, which meant we could have friends come and stay for the weekend. There's a pub just across the road, serving food and you can find other pubs just a few minutes drive away - some with restaurant quality dining. The hosts were lovely and we would strongly recommend The Forge if you want a nice pace to stay whilst exploring this area, Monthly Food market was brilliant!!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your glowing review Michelle, we really enjoyed having you & Evan stay all the way from New Zealand, along with your parents. Our aim is to make The Old Forge a home from home for our guests and it is nice to know that we have succeeded in some small part in creating special memories of your holiday. You're right about our location being perfect for exploring North Yorkshire! Perhaps our tag line should be 'In the middle of nowhere, yet in the middle of everywhere!' Best Wishes Caroline & Nigel

Relaxing and beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely 4 day break at the old forge lodge. Very tastefully decorated and equipped with everything you need. The welcome basket with Yorkshire goodies was a lovely touch and Caroline made us feel very welcome . The village is very quiet but very picturesque and a good location for visiting plenty of places of interest. I would definitely recommend this holiday let and hope to return for another visit in the near future.

Excellent !

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments. Many of our customers comment on how comfy our beds are, and credit has to go to our excellent traditionally handmade mattresses supplied by The York Bed Company. Hope to see you again some time!
