Reforge is a medieval farm that has been a settlement for more than a thousand years. It's original farm name was Uppecote listed in 1275. The Warners were a very eccentric family and that shows in all the buildings the beautiful exotic plants here and in the antiques that were collected by them over the generations. This can be seen best in our Inn - Reforge Inn is a time capsule as it was created by the owners great grandfather and grandfather. It has been lovingly preserved as it was in the 1950s.
As well as history, conservation and wildlife are also very important to us and that can be reflected in the way we manage the 20 acre site of woodland, lakes and picturesque meadows and gardens. We are an exclusive retreat with apartments, and a glampsite- part of the freedomcampingclub with belltents and an off-grid cabin in the woods. We have a courtyard and bar which serve local beers and a plethora of gins! We have a modern apartment which can also be booked. We call ourselves a retreat because we are quiet and peaceful - our ethos is that we want you to relax whilst here. Mini Rigs are not allowed on site. We are a strictly No Dogs Site. Children are welcome but please bear in mind with younger children that we have lakes, woods and streams and we want everyone to be as fully relaxed as possible and have a great time. We also run events here and activities from time to time - please visit our events page.
The farm is based in rural North Devon equidistant between the moor and the sea - whilst not working farm anymore, the farm still retains 20 acres of woodland, meadows and lakes and gardens accessible to our guests.
Loved that this place is just so laid back and quiet, a real break from the busy city life! Faith was so warm and welcoming too. We had a wonderful stay!
The location was ideal for exploring both Dartmoor and the north Cornish coast. The apartment is very comfortable and is in a delightful location, with a lake and woodland nearby. We were made to feel very welcome by Faith who quickly helped us settle in. One reason we booked with her was the ability to book from Monday to Monday which is rare in our experience. The occasional visits by her cats and dog were an added bonus for us.
"Beautiful location, everything that you could need for a few days is provided. Very friendly and helpful owner. Lots of nearby places to see within a short drive. Very peaceful and relaxing. Would definitely stay here again."
