Helen was friendly, easy to deal with and very quick to return any messages which was much appreciated. Would highly recommend staying here

New Forge is everything you have been looking for. Welcoming, clean, modern, comfortable, restful and homely. On arrival after a long drive with three children the urgency to settle in and unpack straight away was unusually forgotten. The children went and explored whilst my husband and I opened one of the bottles kindly left by Kelvin, the owner, and we celebrated our find! New Forge is a true delight to stay in and its position for visiting beaches and the area sets it apart from other holiday cottages we have stayed in. When you have Gwenver Beach only a short walk away and Sennen Cove just around the corner and a lovely property to live in - you may not want to go far! The walk down to Gwenver beach is not easy but well worth it with ample rock pools, sandy beach, great waves for surfing/body boarding, dog friendly and life guarded. There are also footpaths nearby leading to coastal paths and walks through the lovely Cornish countryside. Prior to our arrival we had great communication with Kelvin who sent via email a very informative brochure detailing everything we needed to know about the property, what time we could arrive, travel directions and recommendations on where to eat, surf schools and more. This was very useful so that we could plan our journey, book activities and order a Sainsburys food delivery which arrived without a hitch! We highly recommend surf lessons with Sennen Surf School and Coasteering with Kernow-Coasteering.co.uk. Book before you have your holiday to avoid disappointment. I would highly recommend booking New Forge. I didn't really want to write a review because it's such a gem, you want to keep it a secret - but Kelvin and Amanda deserve a glowing review for sharing this wonderful place and soon you to will be congratulating yourself on your find! We are looking forward to our return in 2017 already!

I regret the weather was always fine while we had been there, must also be a cosy place in the colder days. We very much recommend it!
