What the currents owners say:
I feel in love with The Forge as soon as I saw it, such character and charm. As soon as I entered, I was truly hooked. The Forge has an amazing atmosphere; steeped in history. I felt I was coming home.
The Forge has been our family home for 22 years now and have brought up our two children here.
They went to the excellent local schools and have both done exceptionally well.
I have so many wonderful memories of this home; of parties and barbecues in the house and garden over the years. And best of all, the magic Christmases.
Living in Chalk Village has been a great experience with a friendly community of neighbours. There are great transport links and local amenities as well as beautiful countryside walks pretty much on the doorstep.
Now that our children have left home and we have retired, it is time for us to let another family enjoy The Forge as their home.
