“Fabulous accommodation. Had everything we needed and more. Ideal for our 3 children and 2 dogs. Highly recommend, we had a lovely break – thanks for making everything go so smoothly. A lovely spacious property in a great location.”

“Not sure it could have rained anymore but it didn’t matter a jot – could there be a better place to be!? No matter the weather we love this wonderful place”
Andy – November 2022
“Our 3rd stay in this wonderful home… we love it and Sennen, our 9th year coming here! Thank you for a wonderful, comfortable stay”
The Hobbs – October 2022
“Great house, really spacious with a lovely garden and well stocked with CDs, books, and boardgames. Located near Gwenver Beach – about 15 minutes walk (with a climb down and up). The hosts gave us a lot of information beforehand and recommendations which were excellent.”
Cheryl – September 2022
“We had a wonderful week in this beautiful and peaceful retreat! A great place to escape the bustle of everyday life and unplug. The lovely design touches make the house feel so special. We loved taking our dogs down onto stunning Gwenver beach (one of the last remaining dog friendly beaches in Cornwall) and enjoying surfing in the crystal-clear waters there! The walk back up is steep but definitely worth the effort. Thanks for letting us stay. We would definitely recommend New Forge.”
Sue – August 2022
“Beautiful accommodation, furnished to a high standard, with all mod cons. The bed was very comfortable, we have not slept as well in a very long time! The location was very peaceful and the vast amount of reading materials and games meant that even on the rainy days we did not get bored. The neighbours were very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. Very close to the beach and so many attractions we could not fit them all in – an excuse to come back again! We would highly recommend and look forward to visiting again.”
Georgina – June 2022
“We had a really lovely stay in New Forge. It was perfect for our week away with our 3 children and was spacious, clean, well decorated and furnished. Lovely to be able to walk down to the beach too. Sebastian and the team were helpful and quick to reply when the need arose.”
Dan – April 2022
“We had a thoroughly enjoyable week in this beautiful house. We came to “chill” and get away from the madness of normal life – we certainly managed that! Lots of walks from the door. In fact, we only used the car twice in the whole week. The bed is comfy, shower & wood burner brilliant. The kitchen is a dream to cook in. We will be back. Thanks.”
Flowers – February 2022
“Very relaxing stay, loved the wood burner, we used it lots… walks along Gwenver and Sennen beaches. Great meal at Porthminster Kitchen in St Ives overlooking the harbour… Great break, thank you.”
Ju & David – January 2022
Amazing location and beautiful property. Short walk to Gwenver beach, great place to stay if you want to get away from it all…. would happily stay again.
Jess – December 2021
We love this place! It’s taken us years to come back – next time it will be much sooner! Thank you!
Andy & Nicola – November 2021
A wonderful house to spend our first family holiday for over 18 months. Fabulous location. Lola (the dog) loved the beach! We’ve eaten a lot of pasties & ice cream! Thank you for a great week in this special place!
Marie – September 2021
New Forge has exceeded our expectations… beautiful area, breathtaking views of Gwenver, amazing location to be able to explore this end of Cornwall. We love the décor, and we are big fans of the dining table. Lovely holiday after the 18 months we’ve had. Thank you so much!!
Becky – August 2021
Came here as an alternative to our cancelled Spain holiday and we enjoyed it just as much! Fantastic beaches and lovely hidden gems. Accommodation is amazing and in the perfect location. Thank you for your hospitality!
Niraj – July 2021
A wonderful place to stay in a stunning location. The place was really well thought out and catered for all our needs; we were comfortable and very relaxed there. The view from the bedroom over the fields of cows was so peaceful. Waking up there to the sound of birds makes a change from the traffic we usually hear! The nearest beach has to be up there as one of the nicest in the area. The beautiful cove looks amazing, rain or shine. We’d go back and stay here again as we felt there was a lot more exploring to do!
Gerry – June 2021
Perfect setting to get away and breath in some fresh sea air! We stayed for 10days and it was a great location to see Cornwall as well as take long walks along the coastal path. The kitchen, bbq and large living room were perfect for some family meals and games.
Tessa – May 2021
Sebastian’s property was the perfect family getaway. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, which was great as we have a young daughter. The downstairs bedroom was also ideal as a children’s bedroom. The garden is completely enclosed and so it was very easy to keep an eye on our daughter whilst she played outside. The house is also located on an extremely picturesque spot and is a 5/10(with kids) walk away from Gwynver Beach. Be sure to go on a sunset walk to the beach. It was absolutely breathtaking!
Mariko – April 2021
“Great week in a beautiful location. Sunshine, fresh air and beautiful beaches – what more could you want. Thank you.”
Edelle. C – April 2021
“Great location with a wonderful walk to the beach and the coastal path. The space is amazing, just as described, with a really cozy fireplace for chilly nights.l and a great kitchen for cooking dinners at home. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to see it in the spring or summer! Paola was very responsive and helpful. Thanks for a lovely getaway.”
Alexa. B – December 2020
“Lovely. Bodyboarding. Walking and chilling before next lockdown. Good luck to all ! Fab house and setting. We’ll come back soon !”
Lesley and Stuart – September 2020
“A beautiful place nestled in a dynamic landscape – providing a memorable family stay – with gratitude”
Suzanne, Chris, Hannah and Jonah – August 2020
“Spacious comfortable property with a lovely garden and comfy beds. Lots of attention to detail from owners who clearly care very much about the property. The area is beautiful with lovely coastal walks and beaches on the doorstep.”
Jonathan Madden – August 2020
“Fantastic Cornwall ! Beautiful ! Views! Position ! Quiet ! Calm ! Perfect holiday ! Thank you for all the books and comfort home from home (especially in these times) !”
Paul – July 2020
“It was very homely/relaxing, The beaches were lovely and we had a good time surfing. I would recommend going to Sennen beach and surfing. Thanks for a good stay and hope we are back again !!!”
Anna, Sam, James and Ben – July 2020
“An amazing stay – despite the national lockdown there was plenty to do and we all enjoyed a glorious week.”
Brian – March 2020
“This is an exceptional place to stay. Great location, very stylish, amazing views, everything you could need in the kitchen.”
Becky. W – March 2020
“Great place to relax and as a base for exploring Cornwall.”
Brendan. K – February 2020
“Lovely house, good location, great for dogs. Nice touches like fresh Cornish butter and milk on arrival. Plenty of books, CDs, DVDs and board games of all sorts around to keep everyone occupied on wet afternoons in front of the log burner. We stayed in winter but I’d love to see it in the summer when you can utilise the outside space. Highly recommended.“
Sam – December 2019
“My husband and I recently stayed here with our dog. The location is perfect for quick access to beach walks and walking the South West Coast Path. This is a breathtaking part of Cornwall. Being winter, we were able to take our dog on all the beaches we visited. The nearest beach is 10 minutes walk away and is dog friendly all year round. The house is truly lovely and from the moment we stepped in we felt relaxed. It feels like a home that has been lovingly put together with an expert eye for design. There was a storm during our stay which only added to the atmosphere for us, we were very cosy! We hope to come back and experience the house and location during summertime.”
Emma. W – December 2019
“We stayed at the New Forge in November it was a great space, with everything you could need to relax and unwind – especially with the cosy wood burner going in the evenings. Perfect location with plenty of beautiful places to see, with amazing beaches in walking distance.”
Megan. W – November 2019
“Would highly recommend this property, stunning location and beautifully appointed. It’s clear that a lot of love and attention to detail has gone into this property. It’s wonderful when you arrive somewhere new and it exceeds expectations. Comfort of beds and furnishings very high. Beautiful views especially from upstairs. The area is surrounded by beautiful beaches and lovely places to eat in scenic surroundings. Our dogs had a whale of time too as we went slightly out of the dog ban season, be aware that a lot of the beaches in West Cornwall have seasonal dog bans until end of Sep. Gwynver beach is a short walk from the Forge and has no dog ban – well worth the slightly challenging approach. Seb was very attentive before our stay and we had no need for any further assistance during our stay as the property was loaded with books and information about exploring the area that we could happily trawl through. We would definitely return.”
Jackie. S – October 2019
“We wanted somewhere special, private and remote to do not a lot more than relax and unwind in. New Forge does this in spades. Its a big welcoming space that manages to remain cosy and welcoming at the same time. What helps we found is a large collection of very diverse, interesting books, games, films and music that are kept around the house and shared with people who stay. Everyone loves a book in a quiet moment and we found numerous different ones to keep us amused. (similar tastes too – that was odd…!). The kitchen was well stocked and the design of the house overall was just lovely. We talked numerous times about coming here in the depths of winter/summmer so I hope we get round to this. New Forge very much gives the impression that it wants its tenants to use the house and enjoy their stay. A very special place.”
Kevin. J – September 2019
“Another fab time at New Forge Cottage. I’m not sure that I can add anything to last year’s review. We stayed for two weeks this time and enjoyed every minute, especially as the weather was so nice. I still can’t get over how quiet it is at New Forge. Just a 15 minute walk to lovely Gwynver beach, another half hour and you’re in Sennen. We walked to Land’s End a couple of times and managed the walk along the coast path to Cape Cornwall, highly recommended. Missing it already!“
Tim Fletcher – September 2019
“My family of four spent a week at the New Forge at Gwenver in late August 2019. It was the perfect location for us all, with Gwenver beach really close by and Sennen only a little bit of a walk further on from there. Lands End was a three mile walk and the picturesque Porth Nanven about the same again the other direction, so there is really plenty to do there from an outdoors perspective. The property itself is marvellous, set in what appears to be a remote little hamlet on the edge of the Gwenver village. The owner has clearly taken a lot of time and care on the property, making sure its extremely stylish, whilst at the same time ensuring it is welcoming and comfortable for visitors. There is an abundance of maps and local guides for those keen to explore; there is the most amazing and eclectic collection of books and a thorough CD/DVD collection for the rainier days; the outdoor space is a great size and very comfortable and private; the kitchen diner is perfect for dishing up a banquet, with plenty of worktop space etc ( to include quite a futuristic looking wok-hob which i’ll be looking into myself now i’m home!), the lounge is really the most amazing space to relax in. All in all, it was a great property and i’d have no hesitation in heartily recommending it to others.“
Andy – August 2019
“Thanks so much! Just wanted to say we had a FABULOUS time at New Forge. It’s a wonderful property with everything you could need (and more). Faultless. It was our first holiday where we truly chilled and did little except hit the beach and ate good food from the amazing local suppliers. Sennen and Gwenver beaches absolutely stunning so no surprises there! Definitely huge fans of West Cornwall now and The Cornish Way.
Tip Top stuff!“
Samantha Lancaster – August 2019
“We had an amazing stay. New Forge is perfect for a family holiday, a real party house! Love the bespoke wok hob too!! Stunning part of the world, lots of happy memories and too many cream teas (if that’s possible).“
Gordon Allott – August 2019
“Perfect for a feel-good holiday!
We just loved our stay here! The house is wonderfully equipped for a homely holiday. The area is just so peaceful and really beautiful. The beaches are stunning with great walks from the doorstep. Fabulous all round experience – we’ll be back for sure!“
Johanna Best – July 2019
“Spacious, bright and airy, with comfortable beds and sofas. Set in a wonderfully peaceful part of Cornwall. We really enjoyed our time at New Forge and exploring the surrounding area which offers plenty for the whole family. We loved every minute. The Cornish Way will definitely be getting recommended to our friends.“
Andy Gilsenan – March 2019
“Delightful cottage. We loved our Christmas week at New Forge, very stylishly but comfortably furnished. It’s an area that we know incredibly well so no surprises for us there, just lovely to have such beautiful Cornish beaches and coastline right on the doorstep.“
Tanzi Ridge – December 2018
“We had such a wonderful weekend at New Forge! Thank you so much! Everything was just as we remembered, if not better, and we really look forward to coming back to stay again soon.“
Becky Brennan – October 2018
“New Forge cottage is a luxury property up a winding track, in a lovely part of Cornwall. Couldn’t fault the cottage, very comfortable and so quiet. Super views across the fields down to the sea and just a short walk down to the sandy cove. First time in Cornwall for many years and took a risk with the weather at this time of year, (September). Needn’t have worried as just a couple of overcast days, the rest of the time warm sunshine. This cottage is a credit to the owner and we loved every minute of our holiday there.“
Tim Fletcher – September 2018
“We had a really lovely time at the New Forge; we definitely plan on coming back.“
Sean and Sarah Fleming – June 2018
“Exceptionally well appointed holiday cottage. Everything thought of and provided. A fantastic array of books were wonderful to peruse. This is a cottage that is clearly loved by its owners, it is modern in its facilities but homely and personal in its feel and design. It’s position above the nearby beach at Gwynver is perfect to start your coastal walks to the north towards Cape Cornwall or south to Lands End via Sennen cove. I would highly recommend a stay at this cottage and will return ourselves in the future.“
