“Stunning country retreat”

person found this review helpful

The Old Forge is a truly stunning property and so much more than we ever expected when we booked. There were so many lovely features and personal touches which make this holiday home unlike any other we have stayed in. It ensured that my Mum's 60th Birthday was so special and we all agree that we have found our new holiday 'home away from home'. Sulgrave provides you with a country retreat experience while maintaining good links to Oxford, Banbury and places such as Bicester Village. I would recommend this property to anyone and can't wait to come back in the summertime. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us Ann.

“Beautiful cottage in a lovely area”
Reviewed 8 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed 5 nights at The Old Forge Cottage and it was wonderful. It was so relaxing and the area is lovely, with lots of pretty villages and welcoming country pubs with good food and service, including the The Star Inn in the village itself. The area doesn't get much publicity in terms of tourism, with the south Cotswolds being more popular but it is well worth a visit, as there is plenty to see and do. Would love to have stayed for longer.

“Perfection!”
Reviewed 1 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Stayed at the Old Forge for a few days, and I have to say it was fabulous!
The Cottage is so well decorated and gives you an instant homely feeling!! We went in the winter and it was fab, I cannot imagine how great it would be in the Summer, with the huge garden, which I believe leads to an open field!
It was lovely to meet Ann, the owner, who was extremely kind and welcoming. There is a local shop which is a short walk away (a few minutes). The Cottage was very cosy, and I cannot pick one fault to be honest! So I will 100% return to The Old Forge :), and i would recommend it to everyone!

Many Thanks for a brilliant stay :) x x we shall return in the Summer!
