We have a range of safe and fun activities suitable for children of all ages
Children are more than welcome to visit us! Any forge experience is suitable from 16 years and several are suitable from 7 years. For little ones who are not quite old enough, we do have our viewing and woodlands area for them to share in the experience too.
Whether it’s the first time they’ve discovered the craft or they are massive fans of ‘Forged In Fire’, our dedicated team will guide and support them through their time with us in a fun and enjoyable way.
Choose from our range of packages and allow them to explore the history of blacksmithing. However, please be warned, they might leave with the Blacksmithing bug, wanting to return for more!
Make it a holiday!
If you’re planning your staycation, why not combine Oldfield Forge with your trip to Herefordshire? We work with several family-friendly attractions and local accommodation providers, allowing Mum & Dad to sit back and relax.
For more information on how we can help you plan your break away, please contact our events team.
We offer a Huge Choice Of Activities For Small And Large Groups. Set in the beautiful countryside, away from the commercial nature of a lot of the attractions, Oldfield Forge Experience Day’s still offer the same level of interactivity and ability to create magical memories!
As well as welcoming guests from all over the world we do support a number of home educated social circles to the forge.
Aimed at children over 7 years old, our Home Education Groups are a great opportunity for children to embark upon a programme of exciting blacksmithing activities that develop practical skills, creativity, confidence and teamwork.
Children are encouraged to make their own decisions and judgements and work together as part of a group in a relaxed environment.
Our blacksmith team are on hand to guide children through a variety of activities and challenges but they also empower children to use their own ideas and, of course, give them space and freedom to play.
