BEAUTIFUL 17TH CENTURY THATCHED COTSWOLDS COTTAGE (BARN CONVERSION)

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Broadway - The Old Cider Press Cotswolds

Sleeps four, two double bedrooms (king size beds)

The Old Cider Press is the middle cottage of a Grade II listed barn conversion dating back over 300 years. Cosy and welcoming, nestling in the breathtakingly beautiful village of Stanton (AONB). Be transported back hundreds of years and shed the stresses of daily life in this enchanting base for a relaxing break.

The cottage has many interesting features, with beams and oak floors throughout there is much to make you feel welcome. On the ground floor we have two double bedrooms in which we have quality furnishings and Dorma bedding, both have King size beds. The bathroom is also on the ground floor and has a newly fitted thermostatic shower which is over the bath - we have constant hot water and good pressure. We provide Egyptian cotton towels for the use of our guests.

On the first floor we have a cosy living room, with free BT Vision (On Demand, catch up BBC iplayer and ITV net player), we have a DVD player with a wide selection of DVDs, books and games. We also have free WIFI (internet access). The dining area has seating for four people and we have quality crockery and Villeroy & Boch cutlery. The kitchen is equipped to a high standard.

There is a spiral staircase up to a mezanine floor (galleried area) which has a comfy armchair if anyone should feel the need for some solitude:)

We have a patio area in the cottage garden which is a peaceful and tranquil retreat, here you can listen to the church bells ring, horses trotting by, sheep in the nearby fields, add to this the beautiful birdsong, and it is easy to understand how the charm of this beautiful village envelopes you, eases the mind and lays claim to your heart.

Experience of a lifetime!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 10-Apr-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
I've been thinking about how to describe our experience staying at the Old Cider Press. Everyone seems to use the same superlatives these days so I was worried that my review could sound insincere. We have rented listed properties before in the Cotswolds and have always enjoyed them . . . but this was definitely the best! The cottage is so welcoming & charming. It is spotlessly clean and is equipped with everything you could possibly think of (except a blow dryer). We cooked several meals there and had everything we needed. Ann was exceptionally nice to us - (we had a last minute change in our itinerary and she graciously accommodated us). We arrived to find bread, milk, coffee, tea, plus a freshly baked sponge & a bottle of wine (in my world these are all the staples)! The village of Stanton is truly the gem! We lived in England for 6 years and have traveled back there almost every year for the past 20 so its not like we haven't seen the country. Therefore, I can say from an educated viewpoint that Stanton is one of the loveliest villages I have ever seen! We loved the Mount Inn, the food was good and the staff were exceptional! What can I say except that I can't wait to go back. Staying at the Old Cider Press was one of the best experiences of my lifetime - a real "pinch me, I must be dreaming" experience.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this amazing review, I feel quite overwhelmed by the time and effort you have put into submitting such a glowing report. You have been a pleasure to deal with.

I like to think we do the absolute best we can and to know that this has been "an experience of a lifetime" for you both - I just can't find the words to describe how it makes me feel. To say it makes our efforts worthwhile is an understatement.

Stanton is indeed like no other place I have ever stayed and has a special magic which words truly cannot describe. I hope you will travel back to The Cotswolds and The Old Cider Press one day.

Best wishes to you both
Ann :)

Perfect

I have worked as a travel agent for over 30 years - and been an owner for the last 20. I've travelled far and wide and looked/stayed at many hotel rooms, apartments, villas as well as holiday homes. I can honestly say The Old Cider Press ranks amongst the best. It's the attention to detail that makes the difference. You'll have to stay to appreciate what I mean. If you like boutique style hotels then this is the place to stay. When the only complaint is that I didn't book to stay longer you'll understand how impressed I was.
Owner's Response: Well "WOW" what greater testament could we have - thank you so much for this fabulous review - I have to admit that when you said you owned a travel agency, I did have some feelings of trepidation - glad to see that they were unfounded and delighted that you enjoyed your stay.

Looking forward to having you return to The Old Cider Press.

Kind regards
Ann

Story book cottage

  • Date of Stay: Oct 2013
My friends & I had a delightful 8 day stay in this beautiful cottage. From beginning to end, Ann, the owner went out of her way to ensure our stay was perfect!
The cottage itself is absolutely amazing...the quintessential thatched cottage that visitors to the UK imagine in their dreams. The cottage is decorated to a high standard and has everything you need for a self stay holiday. The layout is great, with the 2 generous sized bedrooms and bathroom downstairs and upstairs a large open plan lounge/diner and kitchen. There is also a lovely little reading nook on a further level. This cottage also has a quaint garden with table and chairs as well.
The village of Stanton is quiet but the village pub offers lovely food and a genuine friendly welcome with an open fire. The bigger village of Broadway which is only a 10 minute drive away has ALL you need....supermarket, pubs, tea house, cafes and a great deli....though Bugdens( the supermarket) offered a huge variety of gourmet produce as well.
The last thing to say is that Ann let her baking do her greetings.....we arrived to find a lovely homemade Victoria sponge and a bottle of wine waiting for us....DELISH!!
We loved our stay in this cottage and cannot speak/write highly enough of its charms.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much Vanessa for taking the time to write such a glowing review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at The Old Cider Press. I hope this means that next time you are planning a trip to the UK you stay with us again.

I have to say, that like other Australians we have had to stay, you were a pleasure to deal with, it makes going that extra mile to ensure staying at The Old Cider Press is as good as we can make it just so worthwhile.

Thank you once again.

Ann :)

We had a wonderful week in the Cotswolds visiting local villages, manor houses, gardens and walking in the countryside. Returning each afternoon to this lovely house adds to the experience of being in the Cotswolds. We have stayed in many home rentals in Europe over the years, the Old Cider Press is the most perfect and most memorable of all. Thank you so much for providing such a home like, comfortable and cosy cottage.
Owner's Response: Thank you so very much, your words mean such a lot to us - we always hope we have done our best to make staying in The Old Cider Press as good as it can be - we hope you will come and stay again one day.

Thank you for taking the time to submit this review - I know a lot of travelers (myself included) set great store on the opinions of previous guests - I couldn't have asked for a better review.

We are absolutely delighted and thank you once again.

Wonderful cottage

  • Review Submitted: 26-Aug-2013

We had a very pleasant stay in the Cotswolds in this very charming and comfortable cottage.
The owner, Ann, had provided us with a welcome package including wine and cake!
She had also informed us of the shops and restaurants and even made a restaurant booking for us at the local pub!
We had a wonderful week and would not hesitate to recommend this very nice cottage in a beautiful and quiet village!
Owner's Response: Thank you for this excellent review, I am delighted that you enjoyed the cottage and the village. I know in an earlier email to me you said you thought the cottage was fabulous, charming and very comfortable and that you regretted leaving, and really what greater praise could we receive.

Your review means a great deal to us personally and I know it helps future guests decide they would like to come and stay at The Old Cider Press.

We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you to stay with us again one day.

Thank you :)

Stanton is probably one of the prettiest and most idyllic villages in the whole of the Cotswolds (AONB). Little changed in 300 years it nestles beneath the slopes of Shenbarrow Hill. It has a very pleasing long main street with several delightful corners where the ancient houses are built in typical Cotswolds style with steeply pitched gables, mullioned windows and glowing honey coloured limestone walls.

The village boasts two magnificent manor houses as well as a restored medieval cross and a church dating back to the Norman period.

There are numerous lovely walks including the famous Cotswold Way – which traverses for 100 miles between Chipping Campden and Bath goes through Stanton. We also have a cricket ground where the local villages compete regularly throughout the summer.

The Mount Inn pub/restaurant stands on a hill at the top of the village with spectacular views across the Vale of Evesham towards the Malvern Hills & even the Black Welsh mountains beyond. On a summer's evening it is the most perfect spot to watch the sunset & enjoy a pint of Donnington Brewery's finest ale.

The Guild House in Stanton runs many courses and 'quiet days' - well worth a visit.

Steam Train
