Stunning
Jun. 2021 • Couples
This little place is absolutely beautiful. Like going back in time. There are two car parks. The toilets in the car park were disgusting, dirty and smelly. The pretty thatched cottages were a delight and worthy of some photos. You can sit and enjoy a cuppa here with a nice cafe and garden. A good escape from the noisy town.

Free attraction worth a visit
Jul. 2021
Free attraction. Pretty large park sits behind some lakes and a small village with thatched roofing. Best accessed by foot from the main seafront (Paignton end of Torquay) to avoid a number of very steep roads. Good cream teas available. Beyond the village further up the hill don't miss the crafts centre which includes blacksmiths and glassware being made by hand. There is a cricket field and pavillion which is a good viewing point.

Not stood the test of time
Jun. 2021 • Couples
Having last visited some 50 years ago when my dad played cricket, I was somewhat disappointed with the Forge had been turned into the usual gift shop with all the stuff that you can buy anywhere at a fraction of the cost. It was very quiet even on a holiday day if you see what I mean. The dichroic glass jewellery maker was the highlight. Not what I had expected.

Beautiful walk to pretty village
Jun. 2021
We had a lovely walk up to the village through the wooded area. Our dog loved the stream. The village was well worth a visit and we had a lovely coffee sat overlooking the village. Well worth a visit and a lovely walk from the sea.

Ok but wouldn’t rush back
Jun. 2021 • Family
Disappointing and not what we expected: the thatched buildings are pretty but there are only 6-8. I expected more in the village to walk round. The craft workshops are ok but quite pricy as would be expected for this type of craft work. The park was ok but nothing special to walk around and the lakes were not really that pretty. Ok but wouldn’t return. An hour in the car park to walk around the village would be enough for 10-15 minutes. A bit disappointed to be honest.

Beautiful village
May 2021 • Couples
Visited again today, beautiful village with a few gifts shops near the car park. If you walk up to the crafts centre there are a few more, including glass blowing which has some beautiful pieces.
