"Great week in a beautiful location. Sunshine, fresh air and beautiful beaches - what more could you want. Thank you."

Edelle. C - April 2021

"Great location with a wonderful walk to the beach and the coastal path. The space is amazing, just as described, with a really cozy fireplace for chilly nights.l and a great kitchen for cooking dinners at home. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to see it in the spring or summer! Paola was very responsive and helpful. Thanks for a lovely getaway."

Alexa. B - December 2020

"Spacious comfortable property with a lovely garden and comfy beds. Lots of attention to detail from owners who clearly care very much about the property. The area is beautiful with lovely coastal walks and beaches on the doorstep."

"Great place to relax and as a base for exploring Cornwall."

Brendan. K - February 2020

"My husband and I recently stayed here with our dog. The location is perfect for quick access to beach walks and walking the South West Coast Path. This is a breathtaking part of Cornwall. Being winter, we were able to take our dog on all the beaches we visited. The nearest beach is 10 minutes walk away and is dog friendly all year round. The house is truly lovely and from the moment we stepped in we felt relaxed. It feels like a home that has been lovingly put together with an expert eye for design. There was a storm during our stay which only added to the atmosphere for us, we were very cosy! We hope to come back and experience the house and location during summertime."

Emma. W - December 2019

"We stayed at the New Forge in November it was a great space, with everything you could need to relax and unwind - especially with the cosy wood burner going in the evenings. Perfect location with plenty of beautiful places to see, with amazing beaches in walking distance."

Megan. W - November 2019

"Would highly recommend this property, stunning location and beautifully appointed. It's clear that a lot of love and attention to detail has gone into this property. It's wonderful when you arrive somewhere new and it exceeds expectations. Comfort of beds and furnishings very high. Beautiful views especially from upstairs. The area is surrounded by beautiful beaches and lovely places to eat in scenic surroundings. Our dogs had a whale of time too as we went slightly out of the dog ban season, be aware that a lot of the beaches in West Cornwall have seasonal dog bans until end of Sep. Gwenver beach is a short walk from the Forge and has no dog ban - well worth the slightly challenging approach. Seb was very attentive before our stay and we had no need for any further assistance during our stay as the property was loaded with books and information about exploring the area that we could happily trawl through. We would definitely return."

Jackie. S - October 2019

"We wanted somewhere special, private and remote to do not a lot more than relax and unwind in. New Forge does this in spades. Its a big welcoming space that manages to remain cosy and welcoming at the same time. What helps we found is a large collection of very diverse, interesting books, games, films and music that are kept around the house and shared with people who stay. Everyone loves a book in a quiet moment and we found numerous different ones to keep us amused. (similar tastes too - that was odd...!). The kitchen was well stocked and the design of the house overall was just lovely. We talked numerous times about coming here in the depths of winter/summmer so I hope we get round to this. New Forge very much gives the impression that it wants its tenants to use the house and enjoy their stay. A very special place."

Kevin. J - September 2019

"Another fab time at New Forge Cottage. I'm not sure that I can add anything to last year's review. We stayed for two weeks this time and enjoyed every minute, especially as the weather was so nice. I still can't get over how quiet it is at New Forge. Just a 15 minute walk to lovely Gwynver beach, another half hour and you're in Sennen. We walked to Land's End a couple of times and managed the walk along the coast path to Cape Cornwall, highly recommended. Missing it already!"

Tim Fletcher - September 2019

"Thanks so much! Just wanted to say we had a FABULOUS time at New Forge. It’s a wonderful property with everything you could need (and more). Faultless. It was our first holiday where we truly chilled and did little except hit the beach and ate good food from the amazing local suppliers. Sennen and Gwenver beaches absolutely stunning so no surprises there! Definitely huge fans of West Cornwall now and The Cornish Way 😉

Tip Top stuff!"

Samantha Lancaster - August 2019

"We had an amazing stay. New Forge is perfect for a family holiday, a real party house! Love the bespoke wok hob too!! Stunning part of the world, lots of happy memories and too many cream teas (if that’s possible 😉)"

Gordon Allott - August 2019

"Perfect for a feel-good holiday!

We just loved our stay here! The house is wonderfully equipped for a homely holiday. The area is just so peaceful and really beautiful. The beaches are stunning with great walks from the doorstep. Fabulous all round experience - we'll be back for sure!"

Johanna Best - July 2019

Spacious, bright and airy, with comfortable beds and sofas. Set in a wonderfully peaceful part of Cornwall. We really enjoyed our time at New Forge and exploring the surrounding area which offers plenty for the whole family. We loved every minute. The Cornish Way will definitely be getting recommended to our friends.”

Andy Gilsenan - march 2019

"Delightful cottage. We loved our Christmas week at New Forge, very stylishly but comfortably furnished. It’s an area that we know incredibly well so no surprises for us there, just lovely to have such beautiful Cornish beaches and coastline right on the doorstep."

Tanzi Ridge - December 2018

"We had such a wonderful weekend at New Forge! Thank you so much :) Everything was just as we remembered, if not better, and we really look forward to coming back to stay again soon"

Becky Brennan - October 2018

"New Forge cottage is a luxury property up a winding track, in a lovely part of Cornwall. Couldn't fault the cottage, very comfortable and so quiet. Super views across the fields down to the sea and just a short walk down to the sandy cove. First time in Cornwall for many years and took a risk with the weather at this time of year, (September). Needn't have worried as just a couple of overcast days, the rest of the time warm sunshine. This cottage is a credit to the owner and we loved every minute of our holiday there."

Tim Fletcher - September 2018

"we had a really lovely time at the New Forge; we definitely plan on coming back"

Sean and Sarah Fleming - June 2018

"Exceptionally well appointed holiday cottage. Everything thought of and provided. A fantastic array of books were wonderful to peruse. This is a cottage that is clearly loved by its owners, it is modern in its facilities but homely and personal in its feel and design. It's position above the nearby beach at Gwynver is perfect to start your coastal walks to the north towards Cape Cornwall or south to Lands End via Sennen cove. I would highly recommend a stay at this cottage and will return ourselves in the future."

New forge, gwenver

This spacious and relaxing, modern, self-catering cottage offers every convenience and a wonderful location. You'll have great views from the huge bed upstairs, and you'll love coming home to your private garden and BBQ in the evening. Perfectly located in the little hamlet of Tregiffian, above the popular surf beach of Gwenver, New Forge is private, away from it all, yet close to everything you could need for a romantic escape, or a wonderful family holiday at any time of year.

Built in 2010, the architect's brief for New Forge was to create a quietly luxurious family home where everyone can be together, yet have their own private space. 

This modern cottage is beautifully furnished and with an impressive library of books, reflecting its owners' love of design and comfort. The secret third bedroom has proven an instant hit with children and has been christened The Cabin.


Perfectly located in the little hamlet of Tregiffian, above the popular surf beach of Gwenver, New Forge is private, away from it all, yet close to everything you could need for a romantic escape, or a wonderful family holiday at any time of year.


The wonderful living space at New Forge offers cooking, dining and living in a simply divided 45' long room that's so well proportioned you'll feel a sense of calm as soon as you step through the door. Sumptuous sofas and a fantastic wood burning stove will make the decision to go out in the evening a difficult one.


The king sized bed in the master bedroom is so special that several guests have gone out and bought themselves a similar one after their stay. This bedroom is really big, with great country views to help you linger in the morning. It has an en-suite toilet leading through to the third Cabin room which is available on request for a fifth guest.

The twin bedroom downstairs is filled with light and has a TV.


A large double ended bath cries out for romantics to pour a glass of something fine, light the candles, and indulge in a luxurious soak. For the mornings the walk in shower is a whole lot more invigorating.


Bring all your friends and dine around the huge table, perhaps while the fire lover cooks up on the barbecue, or the chef gets to work in the well equipped kitchen with induction hob and wok and a combination microwave and oven, there's even a dishwasher. Everyone can be together, yet with a feeling of space.


New Forge's simple garden is enclosed and mostly private with many seating options and a fine barbecue.

Utility room

The utility cupboard off the entrance hall has a washing machine with dryer.

useful to know...

PARKING: There is a large communal parking area at Tregiffian.

PETS:We love pets! Dogs are welcome at New Forge, but we ask that they are not allowed on furniture or beds. The beach is dog friendly too, and the cliff top walks start pretty much from your door. Just £35 per pet.

HEATING: New Forge has underfloor heating throughout, and of course the more exciting draw is the large wood burner that will have you wishing for a chilly evening. It makes winter stays a joy.

LINEN AND TOWELS: You'll have towels and linens provided, just remember your beach towels in summer (or for the Christmas swim!).
