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, a good pub and 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 welcome basket that includes ow award winning sourdough bread from our microbakery, preserves, marmalade, brownies or cookies, as well as orange juice, butter, local organic milk and eggs from our own Burford Brown chickens. ***Please do let us know in advance of any allergies***

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.
