The Old Forge is situated in the centre of the popular village of Piddletrenthide located on the river Piddle, 8 miles north of Dorchester and 4 miles east of Cerne Abbas. The village has good local facilities including the Church of All Saints, which is situated to the northern end of the village with its tower dating from the 15th century, a local store and three pubs. A much broader range of facilities can be found in the county town Dorchester where a wide range of facilities for education, entertainment, health and leisure can be found. Dorchester town is most famous for being the county town of Dorset and being the birthplace of the famous poet and novelist Thomas Hardy in 1840. The life and works of Thomas Hardy form a strong part of the cultural background of Dorchester, which is recognised worldwide as the centre of attraction for students and followers of this great literary figure. The property has good access to Dorchester's surrounding countryside for horse riding, walking and other rural pursuits. The World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast is only a short drive away. Sport in the area includes golf at Came Down, Dorchester Cricket, Football and Rugby Clubs and Sailing in the soon to be Olympic waters of Portland and Weymouth. Communications are excellent, with main line railway links to London Waterloo from all the major centres, cross channel services at Poole and Weymouth, an airport at Bournemouth and, despite the very rural nature of the surrounding area, there is a very effective road network.

A gravel courtyard is located adjacent to the parking area and enjoys a secluded setting, ideal for seating/ dining. There is off street parking for one vehicle.
