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.

WONDERFUL Stay at The Old Cider Press

  • 5 out of 5
We had high expectations of our stay at this lovely cottage and The Old Cider Press did not disappoint! We had a very long day before arriving and the "goodies" awaiting us that night were much appreciated (thank you Ann!). The cottage is quaint, quiet, clean, beautifully furnished and has all the amenities you could want or need. We spent one rainy night in and it felt so cozy! The outdoor garden is lovely as well. Stanton is a town out of a storybook and is well located for travelling around the Cotswolds, including some very nice family restaurants nearby. We had fun watching the horses coming through town from the stables. We hope to visit The Old Cider Press again very soon. I am so happy I found it! Karen from Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Off the beaten path, and oh so beautiful!

  • 5 out of 5
If you are looking for a place to stay that is off the beaten path, this is it! We had such a great travel experience in the Cotswolds, and staying in this cottage was part of our wonderful adventure! Our thanks to Ann, whose attention to detail made the cottage a delightful and comfortable place to stay. Such a treat to walk outside our door and stroll down the quiet streets and soak in the beauty of this place!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review, we are happy to have contributed to part of your adventure
It is a beautiful July morning and I am sitting here in The Old Cider Press with the windows open, I can hear our village church bells tolling, birds singing and sheep bleeting in the nearby fields and yes indeed, it is truly idyllic.
I still get the “pinch me” feeling every time I stay in Stanton – the breath taking beauty of the surrounding area – the “taken back in time" feeling of the village – all this, and we are just a 10 minutes drive from Broadway.
This little village has so much to offer, The Mount – pub/restaurant, the cricket club, livery stables, The Guild House, The Village Hall and a little nursery selling free range eggs, locally grown produce and every day necessities – yes I really do feel privileged to live here.

I hope one day, in the not too distant future we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the UK and The Old Cider Press.

Kind regards
Ann 

Great stay at a lovely Cotswolds cottage

  • 5 out of 5
we spent 4 nights at the OCP using it as a base for Oxford ,Stratford, Blenheim & a couple of days in the stunning villages & towns of the Cotswolds ( Bourton , The Slaughters, Chipping Campden ,Broadway and several more ).The cottage is very well equipped and extremely comfortable & clean and its location in a beautiful picture postcard village is perfect .

i highly recommend the OCP ......i have nothing but praise for it and i have already recommended it to several friends and family members .

i am delighted to add this review to those already on the site and i have no absolutely no hesitation in saying it was a 5 star stay .

thank you to Ann ,the owner , & Jayne who prepared the cottage for our stay and baked the most delicious cake as a welcome gesture .....brilliant !

Owner's Response: Thank you Mike for taking the time to submit such a wonderful review. I see you have certainly made the most of all the wonderful places to visit around and about us.

Your kind words re the cottage, Stanton and indeed the wonderful cakes that Jayne bakes for us are much appreciated.

The fact that you have recommended us to your friends and family is praise indeed and we couldn't really ask for more.

I do believe a review helps future guests to decide to stay at The Old Cider Press. I hope it won't be too long before we have the opportunity of having you stay with us again. You have been a pleasure to deal with.

Kind regards

Fabulous country retreat, first rate in every way

  • 5 out of 5
My sister and I stayed in the Old Cider Press for one week in early May 2014. It was wonderful. Comfortable, quiet, well equipped and beautifully appointed with everything one could want supplied.

We arrived at the Old Cider Press to find treats! waiting for us: The wine was especially welcome as after our journey from London. The cottage was spotless with nice fresh linens, comfortable beds, a well-appointed kitchen for cooking (which I did lots of), glasses for different types of drinks (I really appreciated that), and lovely touches everywhere. In a word: wonderful.

The village of Stanton is lovely, the little shop down the road saw us 4 times, as after buying bread, eggs and veggies, we had to go back several more times for some of the lovely local crafts they had on offer.

Ann was very pleasant to make our arrangements with. An overall excellent experience and I would recommend this cottage to anyone.

Experience of a lifetime!

  • 5 out of 5
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

  • 5 out of 5
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

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

Ever wanted to drive a steam engine? Hire the train, have dinner – take a read – lots of trips to go on – the train station is a 10 minute drive from Stanton.

The list below is a very small sample to give you a glimpse of the wide range of attractions and activities that are available in and around the Cotswolds . Tourist Information centres are located in all the main North Cotswold towns.
