Forest House

It was home to the pioneering iron masters David Mushet and his son Robert from 1772-1891, from whom the Bessemer process originated. The house has been extended and sympathetically modernised but still retains many charming original features and a beautiful garden which can be enjoyed by all! Free parking is available on site and a secure cycle shed is available to store your bikes in overnight.
