The Forge in Herefordshire, a cottage in Shropshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire: The Forge exterior

Ideally suited to a couple looking for a romantic retreat it is also suitable fo

We have five sumptuous houses on our 700 acre estate set in wonderful Herefordshire countryside - rolling hills, pretty villages, wonderful walking and plenty of activities for the energetic.The Colloquy (sleeps 16 (+6))is our super luxury flag ship property with all mod cons included. The Sherriffs - sleeps 18 in great comfort in 8 bedrooms with three spacious reception rooms and a large kitchen and is set in mature gardens.

By any standards this is a magnificent conversion. Originally the blacksmith’s workshop for the 10 carriage horses that were housed at the Stables, it was an open fronted stone barn. It has been converted with architectural flair to create an airy living space and huge bedroom. Ideally suited to a couple looking for a romantic retreat it is also suitable for a family with older children or two couples.

The main living space/dining room is around 40’ x 20’ with a mezzanine gallery accessed by spiral staircase. There is a kingsize built-in double bed in the gallery which looks down onto the fabulous open planned area below. The original A-frame of the building has been kept intact and obvious, with Swedish woodburner offering additional heat and atmosphere to our relaxed guests. There is a large and very extendable table situated adjacent to a oak and black slate topped kitchen, There is also a wetroom shower and wc below the mezzanine providing an independent washing area. Two sets of double French doors open onto the pretty terrace with a lavender and beech hedged lawns. A teak dining table and chairs are a welcome place to discuss the days on the balmy summer evenings.

The main bedroom is spectacular. A superking size bed with pocket sprung mattress, Egyptian linen sheets and large cotton towels is the centrepiece of this fabulous room (25’ x 20’). A rolltop bath stands in the bedroom with a separate wc and double stylish porcelain sinks set on a black granite top to provide a luxurious washing area. A second spiral staircase accesses a folly mezzanine area with a single futon for an additional child/guest if necessary. Again a pair of French doors accesses the garden terrace.

The Forge has oak floorboards throughout, modern Italian radiators with linen and plain cotton curtains. Attention to detail in this stylish cottage has resulted in a truly fantastic place to stay.

The Forge can be taken alone or as an adjunct to Gardeners or The Colloquy, or both to sleep a total of 36. We have yet to find a disappointed guest.
