Old Forge Barn Ref: NT8

This 16th-century Grade II listed barn has been skilfully converted to provide a unique and outstanding holiday home - with every detail having been taken into consideration from the hand-made door hinges, handles, old flagstones and oak floors, down to two doors made by Mouseman Thompson. Ancient Chinese and Roman pottery feature throughout the house, and in the entrance hall, two trees have been planted into the flagstone floor, adding an unusual touch. On the first floor, a spacious 40-foot galleried, beamed living room adds further charm. The house is furnished throughout with interesting antique furniture from the Arts and Crafts era, a movement founded by William Morris.
Old Forge Barn lies within walking distance of Stow market square, where there are excellent restaurants, old inns, galleries and many interesting shops. The towns and villages of the Cotswolds are a delight to tour, with stunning countryside in all directions. Burford has an excellent wildlife park and the pretty town itself is a pleasure to browse around, whilst at Stratford-upon-Avon, daily guided tours are offered to all the places of interest in this World Heritage City of Shakespearian fame. For alternative days out, Oxford is easily accessible, as is Cheltenham. Blenheim Palace is within 30 miles. Shops 400 yards.

The Old School House is a traditional, detached, stone house (whole of house in photograph) in the conservation area of the quiet, unspoilt village of Lower Swell. Originally built in 1869 for the village school mistress, the house has been renovated, having interiors which are both pretty and contemporary.
The holiday property boasts a selection of delightful interior and exterior features which make it an individual and unique choice. These include a beautiful old stone fireplace, original walk-in pantry, romantic bathroom with clawfoot bath and stone fireplace, not to mention its pretty bedrooms with French cotton bed linen. The curtains and fabrics are by Designers Guild, Colefax & Fowler and Liberty.
The tranquil garden with Cotswold stone walling and terrace overlooking the lawn with herbaceous borders, has distant views towards Stow church. The Donnington Way and Heart of England Way run along the nearby lane providing marvellous walking in peaceful countryside, yet the house is only 1 mile from the inns and restaurants of Stow-on-the-Wold, a pleasant stroll using the recently constructed Millennium footpath.
