About Us


The Anvil dates back to the 18th century, it started life as a single storey stone built thatched cottage which may have once housed one of the many watermills in the village.


Our Story

The Anvil

The Anvil was extended around 1885 with the addition of a brick built first floor and single storey workshop and stable, the property served as the village blacksmiths until the 1950’s.

Paul and Jayne Cheeseman rescued the property from dereliction in 2008 and carried out a comprehensive restoration retaining much of the original property while sympathetically extending it.
