Summary

Forge Cottage is a lovely Cotswold stone property, managed by the neighbouring Guiting Guest House. The cottage is in the centre of the beautiful and peaceful village of Guiting Power, which is surrounded by the stunning countryside of the North Cotswolds. The well known market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are both approximately six miles away and the cottage is well placed for exploring the entire Cotswolds region.

The cottage has been enhanced by its current owners, whilst maintaining its traditional character, including wooden beams and floors, and a real fire. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV with DVD player, and a well presented kitchen.

The cottage sleeps a maximum of five guests (one on a sofa bed), in two bedrooms, with two bathrooms. Quiet on street parking is freely available. Forge Cottage is an ideal retreat for friends, couples or a family, looking for a peaceful getaway in a beautiful village.

Location

Guiting Power:

The quintessential Cotswolds village of Guiting Power lies on a tributary of the river Windrush, its russet-coloured houses clustered round a sloping green, providing a perfect example of how the English village can seem to have been carved from the earth it is built on.

This delightful village is a fascinating example of the unconscious harmony created by Cotswold masons over the centuries. The cottages, shops and inns are all beautifully cared for, with many of the buildings being owned and restored by a housing trust, initially set up for twelve cottages in 1934. The church of St. Michael to the south of the village has an exceptionally fine Norman south doorway.

Guiting Power is unusual for a village its size, in having a Post Office, a village hall, a children's nursery, a bakery, village shop and two public houses.

A number of glorious walks can be taken in the area around Guiting Power, north-westwards to Guiting Woods, south-eastwards down the Windrush Valley to Naunton, or south-westwards to Hawling, with the Hollow Bottom Inn and The Farmers Arms providing welcoming places to relax at the end of these walks.

The Cotswolds Farm Park, made famous by the BBC's Countryfile programme, is near to Guiting Power, with its many rare breeds of animal making it a favourite destination of families.

Bourton-on-the-Water:

The village of Bourton-on-the-Water (or “Bourton”) is famous for its picturesque High Street, flanked by long wide greens and the River Windrush that runs through them. The river is crossed by several low, arched stone bridges, which have led to Bourton being called the “Venice of the Cotswolds”. Bourton is regularly voted the prettiest village in the Cotswolds.

Stow-on-the-Wold:

Sitting elegantly in the middle of the world famous Cotswold's countryside, Stow-on-the-Wold is the quintessential English market town. Stow is a natural and historic meeting place, with a fine selection of 16th century Cotswold stone shops, luxury hotels, chic bistros, inns, elegant manor house hotels and cosy teashops.

The Cotswolds:

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides'.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Food & Drink

There are a number of well-regarded pubs and restaurants located a pleasant walk or a short drive away from the property, including:

•The Hollow Bottom, Guiting Power

•The Farmers Arms, Guiting Power

•The Black Horse Inn, Naunton

Bourton-on-the-Water:

•The Duke of Wellington
