Local shops and amenities

Coxwold – Although we don’t have a village shop we do have a village garage, tea rooms, village pub and interior/gift shop!

Ampleforth – The closest place to Coxwold for provisions and newspapers is the post office/shop which is almost opposite one of our favourite coffee shops – Kirks. Ampleforth is also where our local doctor’s surgery is located.

Easingwold – Our nearest place for good local shops and banks. On the market square you can find anything from great butchers, bakers and delis to a hardware store, florist, wine merchant and coffee shops! Also, a Barclays Bank with cashpoint.

Helmsley – A thriving small town with lots of interesting shops centred around the lovely Market Square. Well worth a visit.

Restaurant drop off and collection

By prior arrangement we are happy to drop off and collect at no charge (10 mile radius) if you are booking a special meal in one of the nearby gastro pubs or restaurants.

Home-cooked food

For those who really want to unwind and simply do as little as possible, we can deliver a breakfast hamper to the cottage, a picnic lunch for those great days out, provide afternoon tea in our lovely garden on sunny days, or a simple supper with a bottle of wine on arrival or for a quiet evening in. If any of these appeal to you then please contact us prior to your arrival to discuss.

Dogs and children

The Forge Cottage is not suitable for dogs or children. We have two well-behaved black Labradors ourselves who are not allowed to roam into our luxury self-catering holiday cottage!


For the benefit of all guests, the Forge Cottage and gardens are designated as non-smoking areas.
