The Old Forge is a special place that I thought needs to be well and truly recognised. Step back in time with this charming spot in deepest darkest Dorset. I was lucky enough to meet the lovely owners at The Vintage Nostalgia Festival last month and am so taken with this beautiful location, I am a Dorset lass – although have flown the nest and now live in London – but this little find definitely fills me with happy thoughts as a sure bet for a dreamy getaway from London. The Old Forge is a quirky bed and breakfast with an original gypsy caravan and shepherds hut on site and they offer self catering and glamping! The whole location is brimming with orginal vintage delights including enamel signs and authentic petrol pumps – along with beautiful classic vintage cars, Tim the owner restores post war classics on a converted cart shed. It’s also possible to use this beautiful location as a perfect find for a photographic or film shoot through jj Locations. A whimsical escape to while away the hours, breathing in the refreshing county air, whilst soaking up the vintage, rustic surroundings – they even have their very own donkey Scumpy Jack, can’t wait to escape London for a few days.
