WE’RE MORE THAN JUST A BLACKSMITH FORGE – WE’RE A DAY OUT TO REMEMBER FOREVER!
When you come to Oldfield Forge, you can enjoy a whole host of different experiences, inside and out of the forge! Our on-site facilities mean everybody
Whether it’s a family day out (kids as young as 7 can take part), a fun couples date day, or a larger group activity, there is something for everyone! You can even come and take part on your own for some ‘you’ time hammering metal!
If you’re not quite sure blacksmithing is for you, then our woodlands and showroom viewing area offers the perfect place to share the experience too. You can choose to capture some of the action on camera or relax and unwind with a book whilst the others get busy in the forge!
You can also enjoy browsing through our showroom and viewing what our Commission Blacksmiths have been up to. Our gift shop features plenty of souvenirs to remind you of your time with us.
For those with young children under the age of 7 years, the Woodlands area is an ideal place to entertain the children with our rope swing, woodlands trial hunt, and forest den making area, all overlooking the picnic area.
No special effects, rides or fast food outlets; just lots and lots of outdoor fun and adventure!

CANCELLATION- We require a minimum of 14 days cancellation notice prior to your scheduled arrival date.
In the event of cancellation or booking amendments made less than 14 days before the event (due to reasons including, but not limited to, medical conditions, family bereavements and family/work commitments,) or failure to attend the event, you will forfeit your booking. Unfortunately, no exceptions can be made.
In such circumstances, Oldfield Forge Ltd shall be entitled to retain full payment and shall charge an appropriate fixed cancellation fee (as outlined in the table below), which is reflective of the direct losses we would incur by losing the booking.
For the avoidance of doubt, in relation to potentially adverse weather conditions, Oldfield Forge Ltd will operate experience days only when it is safe to do so. If you wish to cancel a booking due to your perception of the weather (when we have deemed it is safe for an experience day to proceed), you will forfeit your booking.
Group bookings of over four people require you to provide a minimum of 6 weeks’ notice, in order to rebook without incurring a cancellation charge.
REFUND - We offer a full refund on unused vouchers, within 28 days of purchase. The return period will expire 28 days from the day on which you made your purchase. After the 28 days of purchase a full refund will not be permitted. Should you be deemed eligible for a refund, the absolute maximum amount you will be entitled to is the total you have paid to us and will not extend to consequential loss or claimed inconvenience or stress, howsoever caused. No exceptions are made in this regard. If you have taken part in any of our experience days packages, regardless of the circumstances or conditions under which you took part, then this will negate any refund claim.

Bookings can be made up to 7 days a week, except re-bookings which relate to cancellations made14 days or less prior to the arrival date, which must be made on a weekday (Monday – Friday), excluding bank holidays, in order to avoid peak times when availability is limited.
