About The Old Forge

The Old Forge is a single storey cottage, newly renovated to a very high standard offering light and bright self-catering accommodation with views of rolling hills as the back drop. Just yards away is a Battle of Britain pub, The Cat and The Custard Pot which is full of WWII memorabilia, and also a beautiful little Norman church of St Oswald's; this lovely cottage is located in Paddlesworth, a small hamlet of buildings that has the claim of being the smallest Parish in Kent.

The large open plan sitting and dining room offers ample space for two couples or a small family to relax after an exciting day walking or sightseeing. The master bedroom is large and welcoming and the sturdy bunk beds are comfortable for adults and children alike. The enclosed garden is pet friendly and a further large stretch of garden offers plenty of space for children to play. With so much to offer locally you will love The Old Forge as your base to relax and unwind.
