Set in our garden amidst beautiful Oxfordshire countryside on the edge of the Cotswolds, Forge cottage offers a wonderfully relaxing, calm and peaceful space for 2 people to enjoy. We have worked hard to create the kind of environment that we would love to stay in ourselves. Lower Heyford is a great location for so much to do and enjoy in the local area, wonderful Blenheim Palace on our doorstep,a train station in the village with good service into Oxford and easy access to the M40.

The space
Entrance is through a gate adjacent to our house for exclusive use by our guests. We recommend that guests park along the quiet road here. An enclosed courtyard space with table and chairs makes a lovely sunny spot for a morning coffee or glass of wine in the evening. The entrance to the cottage opens into a well equipped kitchen with cooker, microwave, toaster, kettle and nespresso machine.

We provide essentials including tea, coffee, milk and sugar as well as a complimentary basket of fresh award winning sourdough bread from our own microbakery, preserves, marmalade and usually some fresh brownies, as well as orange juice, butter, local organic milk and eggs.

French doors open onto the main garden , table and chairs and BBQ which guest are very welcome to use. The bathroom and toilet are located to the right hand side of the front door off the kitchen.

There are beautiful handmade terracotta floor tiles throughout the downstair areas which are wonderfully cool in the summer and the welcome underfloor heating and woodburning stove in the living room ensure it is cosy in the winter. The living area itself is light and airy being the full height of the cottage with a vaulted ceiling and a mezzanine level above, where the bedroom is located.

Steep 'space saving' stairs lead off the kitchen near the french doors to the bedroom with a hatch style opening. Though the bedroom mezzanine area is in the roof of the cottage with sloping ceiling it is spacious and comfortable.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to use any part of our outside space. The Oxford canal runs along the bottom of the garden. We have single kayaks and a rowing boat as well as bicycles which guests are very welcome to use.

Other things to note
Please no smoking in the house
Regrettably no pets
Some uneven steps
**Please note there are steep space saving stairs into bedroom**
Very flexible arrival times
A dog and a cat live with us, and though they do not come into the guest’s space they are often around the garden!
There is a small shop in the village and a well equipped but small stores in the next village of Steeple Aston but no supermarkets within easy walking distance. However we are happy to take in any prearranged deliveries for you prior to your stay, or even get some local produce in should you require it.

During your stay
As much or as little as you wish! The Cottage is adjacent to our house in our garden but quite private. We really want you to enjoy your stay and are very respectful of your privacy but are usually on hand should you need anything.
