The Forge is situated in the heart of the sought-after village of Churchill an attractive Cotswold Hill village on the Oxon/Glos border and situated within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Forge comprises a substantial detached house and adjoining cottage of late 19th century origins. The property is of local stone construction under a pitched tiled roof and in more recent times has been carefully improved to now offer modern-day living accommodation amongst its age and charm. The property has been successfully operated as a guesthouse for over 30 years and has an exceptionally good reputation and following. Although a business, the property retains a comfortable homely atmosphere which is complemented by a number of stone fireplaces, exposed timbers and leaded mullion windows. The property offers versatile accommodation with the benefit of an adjoining cottage/annexe which could form additional accommodation to the main house.
