The Wedding Cars


Frog Furlong Cottage, Gloucester, 6KAs well as Bed and Breakfast, we run a small Wedding Car business; Both Clive and our son Jonathan are committed car enthusiasts and run the wedding car business to enable ownership of some interesting and unusual motor cars.

They range in date from 1928 to 1963 and are available for hire for Weddings, Social events and Balls. The aim is to provide a friendly service that fits in with the specific requirements of the day, rather than giving a prescriptive package.

The cars have been used in the "Poirot" television series, and on "GMTV" as well as appearing in such divers publications as "Wedding and Home" magazine, "Elle", "Cotswold Life" and "Motor Sport" as well as feature articles in the local Newspapers; "The Citizen" and "The Echo".

The cars date from an age of elegance where long dresses and tailed coats were the norm and so have large passenger compartments with ample leg and head room.

Frogfurlong Cottage Guest House is situated in the green Belt area within the triangle formed by Cheltenham, Gloucester and Tewkesbury. The cottage itself is what remains of 5 C18th cottages, 3 of which were knocked down and the remaining 2 extended and modernised into the house, pretty much as it is now.

The cottage stands well back from the little Frogfurlong Lane and is surrounded on all sides by fields. When they were first built, the cottages were rented out from the main owner; Thomas Pear to his various brothers and sisters for a 'peppercorn rent' As to the name, 'Frogfurlong' - no-one knows, there are no documents that give any explanation as to what it means.

It gives considerable enjoyment to the postman however as we often get mail addressed to "Frog Fell on Cottage" and "Frog Fellow Cottage" also, people seem to be unable to resist putting pictures of frogs on envelopes.
