The Forge is a luxury retreat with fabulous views overlooking the river Alde. Perfectly positioned to make the most of picturesque walks weaving through reeds up the river to Snape Maltings. Keep an eye out for the stunning Avocets and Herons swooping by as you stroll the estuary.

Whilst benefiting from being remote and extremely peaceful, Iken in fact is only a stones throw from Orford, Snape and Aldeburgh. They all have superb pubs and restaurants that offer great local food and drink!

O espaço

The Forge is warm and very comfortable, it has all of the qualities of a larger property condensed to fit tastefully into this stunning retreat. The bathroom has a good sized shower and loo. There is little better than opening the door to a bright summer morning and having breakfast outside overlooking the river banks.

The Forge is equally warm and cosy in the winter and the landscape changes drastically every season!

Outras observações

(Please note that a property nearby is currently under refurbishment - only applies Monday to Friday between 8 and 4)

The property sits next door to the main property 'The Anchor' and has a very large shared garden. Despite this your privacy is respected and The Anchor is often empty. The Forge looks out in the opposite direction so you can easily forget the house is even there.

Beautiful place in a beautiful quiet area, well located for walks and birds. The patio is great for breakfast outdoors with a river view. We had a perfect weekend stay!

We had an idyllic weekend at the property. It is in a stunning location; beautiful views from the property and fabulous walks on the doorstep. The property is very cleverly laid out; very comfortable for 2 and very well equipped. Both the sofa and the bed are super comfy. Would highly recommend the property for couples seeking a peaceful break in an outstandingly beautiful, rural setting.

Truly unique spot with a splendid view of the river. Perfect for a couple to enjoy the countryside and get away. A beautiful walk north to Snape Maltings is only 20mins for excellent food and drink and a peaceful walk south to Iken church is on your doorstep.

The Forge is in a beautiful spot. We had lovely walks literally on the doorstep and were very close to restaurants in Orford and Aldeburgh. The Forge is very cosy little retreat.

Positives: A beautiful location, total wilderness on the doorstep, wonderful walks. Negs: The estate agents/letting agents do not show the large house directly behind the cottage in the photos. Why hide it? When I stayed there were guests from the main house wandering in front of the cottage, peering in, so no privacy. The cottage is in their garden. I had wanted to be in an isolated place. Slow wifi- 2MB /sec, on second day no wifi at all. Spiders, lots of them, and cobwebs, I don't think the letting agents' cleaner had cleaned the house properly. Summary, a stunning location, a nicely refurbed cosy cottage. Needs to be managed better by letting agents and have photos which accurately show both the main house, and the active building site beyond the bottom of the garden. ( I see thy have since added this latter info to the wording in the listing, at least)

Resposta de Robin:
Tania we are extremely sorry that you felt that the house was not as described, we have not had a complaint in any of the other reviews before so thought we had perfected the listing - The cottage does have it's own access and car parking space far away from the main house and on the rare occasion that the main house is occupied, the privacy of the residents in 'The Forge' is priority (Future guests feel free to query whether anyone is in the main house for desired dates). The house had a deep clean the afternoon before Tania arrived - being in such a remote location near the river Alde and the marshes, in the summer months the wispy spiders are unavoidable - I did personally however drive 30 miles to come and remove any cobwebs / spiders in the property for you. We have taken on board your comments and appreciate the positive notes in your reviews and since updated the listing to ensure that there can be no future misunderstandings.

A total idyll. We spent nearly a fortnight there and felt so calm, rested and also so enthralled with the landscape, the wildlife, the way of life. The river becomes a friend, its tidal changes extraordinary to watch. Close by, keen eyes can see seals. Migratory birds set their own narrative. The walk through the reeds to Snape is addictive, the nearby village Orford the loveliest example of the benefits of local produce. Throughout, the little cottage was a total sanctuary, and it has our highest recommendation.

We had a great short break in Suffolk and The Forge was a perfect place to stay - off the beaten track, with a lovely view over the estuary and yet still easy access to the villages around. Thoughtfully converted, with everything you need for a short visit. The bed was very comfortable, much better than most we've experienced!
