Welcome to Sandhurst Farm Forge
A Working Forge and Bed and Breakfast run by Charles and Kate Dickinson
Charles is a professional blacksmith who uses a coke forge and anvil to produce functional and ornamental ironwork to an extremely high standard. We do have a small selection of current work available at the forge, or for inspiration please see our gallery of past works. You are also welcome to come and discuss a commissioned piece. Charles no longer shoes horses for a living, but concentrates on decorative and functional ironwork, as well as the more traditional Firegrates and Firedogs.
Our AA Four star graded Bed & Breakfast accommodation is in a converted stable block and offers our guests an ideal country retreat to relax. Explore the local way of life, sample the many quality eating places that the Faversham Area is becoming renowned for, and exercise in the fresh air by following one of our many walking routes, to suit your fitness level.
