Description

The Forge in Upper Oddington is a luxury Cotswolds Holiday Cottage which has recently been fully renovated to the highest standard without losing its original features or charm, it has exposed beams, a wood-burning stove, oak floors and some exposed stone walls and everything you would expect from an 18th-century Cotswolds cottage.

The beautiful village of Upper Oddington is situated only two miles outside Stow-on-the- Wold, the heart of the Cotswolds, with a full selection of shops and restaurants. The well-known towns of Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-Marsh, Broadway and Chipping Campden are only a short drive away. A little further afield you will find Cheltenham and Oxford, as well as Bath with its stunning Georgian architecture. Stratford-upon-Avon and the famous Royal Shakespeare Company Theatre are only 30 minutes door to door.

Two minutes' walk away, the award-winning Horse and Groom Pub serves fantastic meals, as does The Fox in Lower Oddington. The village

The village church of St. Nicholas boasts famous medieval Doomsday wall paintings. Daylesford Organic is nearby in the lovely village of Kingham, which also has a train station with connections straight into London Paddington (1 hour 30 minutes).

The wooden country kitchen has been handcrafted and is equipped with all the latest appliances as well as everything you need to cater for up to 6 people. An adjacent open plan living room boasts a Clearview wood burning stove, a sofa, window seats and a comfortable leather chair. The iPod dock station/radio, a TV/DVD player with an ample selection of DVDs, and a variety of books and games all provide for your entertainment and cosy afternoons or evenings curled up on the sofa.

Also on the ground floor, there is a newly installed shower room and toilet/sink as well as a utility room with a washer/dryer.

Upstairs you'll find the main bathroom plus two bedrooms with comfortable beds. The master bedroom has a double wooden sleigh bed, built-in wardrobes and chest of drawers, while the second bedroom is a cosy twin bedroom with pretty wallpaper and wooden beams. Both overlook the garden and also have village views. The bathroom is newly renovated with a roll-top bath, sink and toilet.

The house is detached, situated in a very quiet village location, and has a private garden with seating for four as well as a BBQ. There is an off-road parking space for one car.

We provide a Welcome Hamper on arrival for your comfort. Also, a Beautician and Cook can be arranged upon request. Very well-behaved dogs are welcome - lots of beautiful country walks lead straight from the cottage into the lovely Cotswolds Hills.

“Perfect”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2014

A beautiful cottage with everything you need - the kitchen was fully stocked with the essentials, the lounge with guidebooks, fiction and DVDs for all the kids. A great place to relax in or to use as a base to explore the Cotswolds.

“Gorgeous and so cozy!”

Reviewed 11 Jun 2014

My husband and 6-year old daughter stayed for three nights at the Forge early May. The travel and key safe directions were easy to follow. We were thrilled with our stay at The Forge - it had everything we had hoped for and looked exactly like the photos on the site. The heated floor, pot-belly fireplace, powerful shower and deep bath were all very warm and comforting to come home to after a chilly May day out at the wonderful local pubs and country strolls. The beds, pillows and doonas were extremely comfortable and the kitchen had all the mod-cons that we needed. The home was very clean. We wished we had booked The Forge for longer!

“The forge”

Reviewed 12 Dec 2013

Our stay at the Forge was grand. The cottage was not only comfortable, but decorated in a very appealing way. It had all of things that we required. We would return again and recommend this place to everyone.

“Lovely Cottage in very pretty village.”

Everything provided with except shaver socket so remember to take adaptor to charge razor, toothbrush etc

“Fabulous cottage in the Cotswolds”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2013

Just superb from start to finish - everything we could have wanted. Beautifully appointed. In a lovely village.

“Smaller than anticipated”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2013

We arrived to find the cottage had not been cleaned and prepared following the departure of the previous guests. Following a phone call to Anna Ferne we were told that there had been a mix up and that someone would be along in the next few hours. The cleaners finally showed up at around 5.30pm and we had to leave the property while it was prepared. We later had a visit by Anna, who put £20 behind the bar of the local pub by way of apology. However, we would much rather have been able to access the property on time than wait in limbo for two and a half hours past our check in time. The property itself was much smaller than we expected. Although the website description states that it is for four people, it is really only large enough for two adults and two small children. The twin bedroom contains two junior size beds which were definitely not long enough for my strapping 6 foot son. He found it far more comfortable to sleep on the sofa!! The lounge is described as having seating for four people but this again is not the case when there are four adults. There is one armchair and a sofa that myself and two teenagers had to squash into, being unable to move once we had sat down. The kitchen was of a high standard, although again it was very small. The shower room, however, was amazing. The property as a whole was lacking some TLC, with cobwebs everywhere which wouldn't have taken much effort to remove, and a very over grown garden. Two of the four garden chairs were not usable as the foliage had covered them and I had to cut some of the bush down outside the entrance door in order that we could get into the property without having to brush against it. In conclusion, we wouldn't stay there again.

We were very sorry to hear that these guests had a delay in getting access to The Forge due to a mix up with external cleaners to Blue Lagoon and we sincerely apologise for and this. The Forge is in keeping with many other typical Cotswolds cottages of its time with regards to layout and size. We believe the photos and descriptions on the website give a very clear picture and so far, we have had fantastic feedback from all our guests since opening its doors in March 2013. Since this guests stay, the owners have removed the shrub in the front of the main entrance and the gardener has restored order in the garden after the recent heat wave has caused a mad growth spurt.
