Information about our Blacksmith Experience Days
Located in rural Herefordshire on Old Field Farm near Garway Hill. You can use our postcode HR2 8HA to find us.
We definitely recommend bringing your own car or a friend willing to drive you if at all possible.
Our nearest train stations are Hereford and Abergavenny.
If you aren’t coming in your own car we recommend booking a taxi in advance to get you here and back again as unfortunately there isn’t public transport to our location.
Please pre-book your taxi as phone signal isn’t always guaranteed here on site. Make sure to also let your blacksmith know on the day so they can make sure you finish on time!
Our office hours are Monday- Friday from 9am until 3pm.
Please email [email protected] allowing up to 48 hours for our team to respond to your email. We aim to reply to all enquiries and booking requests within 24 hours.
We are a family run company, if your call is urgent please contact 07716152354.
A t-shirt (with a jumper in winter) is preferred, no flammable tops such as lycra are allowed to be worn. Jeans or trousers are recommended to be worn. No vests or crop-tops where skin is exposed is advised. No loose cuffs or torn clothing are to be worn, as these can act as a snagging hazard. Shorts or skirts are also not permitted. Overalls can be worn, however, leather aprons are preferred and provided.
If you have steel toe capped boots or supportive footwear then this is preferred. For examples; trainers, ankle boots, walking boots. Open toe shoes or trousers tucked into boots are not allowed.
We do ask for long hair must be tied back and to remove rings, watches or bracelets in the workshop as these pose a snagging hazard.
Please note lunch is not automatically included with your workshop. We have a small tuck-shop on site where you can purchase snacks, drinks and pastries. Everything sold is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Please be aware there is a minimum £10.00 spend on card therefore cash is recommended when buying snacks and for our hot drinks machine which only accepts change.
You are welcome to bring your own lunch with you and if you have any dietary requirements we do recommend this.
We require a minimum of 14 days notice prior to your scheduled workshop date for cancellations and re-booking requests. All requests must be sent and recieved in writing to [email protected] with your voucher/booking details.
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 listed within our full Terms and Conditions), 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 re-book without incurring a cancellation charge. Please check our Cancellation Policy for more detailed information.
