Excellent experience in every aspect. Staff friendly, whilst safety conscious throughout and worked as a team ensuring the whole group were supported in producing their chosen masterpieces.We are so proud of the rose we forged which has been much admired, We have already recommended to several friends that they would enjoy it too. Many thanks to you all for a memorable morning and a treasured keepsake.

Setting up the visit is doable (obviously as I’ve been three times!), but the communication by email doesn’t reflect the warmth of staff on site and level of positive organisatIon. There’s a lot of unnecessary tooing and froing. Safety is thorough and clear but there isn’t an uptight atmosphere as a result, they’ve got the balance just right. Staff are helpful, entertaining, knowledgable and humorous. We’ve had a great time here and will keep going back. It’s very good value for money.

Fantastic experience, we got to choose what to make from a wide range of things. , the guys that teach you are so talented, patient and helpful. We loved it and highly recommend it. Absolutely no previous experience required. Wear a tee shirt, it’s hot by the forges

A fabulous experience, even better than expected and such good value for money. The area is lovely for anyone accompanying someone and not taking part...there's a lovely picnic area, loos, good parking facilites right next to the forge - and lovely walks in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside if so inclined. My husband said the instruction was excellent, people so friendly and he can hardly believe he was able to make a garden knife in just 3 hours.
