Old Forge Stables - Luxury Cottage In The Cotswolds

This stunning conversion has been extended to provide a modern open-plan living space with full height glass gable end opening out onto the private tiered patio. Ideal for couples (sorry no children) at any time of year, there is a wood burner for those long winter nights and air conditioning for those balmy summer days.

Two tastefully furnished en-suite bedrooms now replace the two horse stables and hayloft in the original stone building. A modern open staircase leads to the upper floor and a new mezzanine level where you can relax with a book or just take in the views. And to top it off there is a tennis court available all year round for the more energetic guests.

Sustainable technology has been incorporated into the refurbishment with Air Source Heat Pump for underfloor heating and an array of discreet solar panels for electricity generation.
