A pretty, divided staircase leads up to the double bedroom and family bathroom to the left and the single bedroom (with under-eaves space for a ‘folding' bed) to the right.

Note: the three Old Forge apartment cottages have restricted headroom in parts of the bedrooms and landing areas due to the original oak beams and A-frame structure.

5/5 Excellent

Great place - excellent location
We were on a walking holiday with the dog and it was way too hot for him so we ended up sightseeing and spending a lot of time eating in the local establishments - all of which accepted dogs. Beautiful area, the cottage is in a perfect location very easily walkable to Sudeley Castle and the middle of Winchcombe. The staff on site could not have been more helpful finding two fans for us in the heatwave. Accommodation was compact but perfect for two adults - some nicer outsider furniture would have been a bonus. There was lots of added extras inside including tea, coffee and chocolate pods for the machine, shampoos and shower gels, welcome pack for the dog!
