Overview

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.

Beautiful home in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property in a wonderful setting. Stanton is by far one of the prettiest British villages and is ideal for touring the Cotswolds. The cottage is tastefully furnished and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The owners must be very proud to present their home as it is and it was a privilege to have stayed there. We will definitely return and would imagine it looks stunning in every season. Ideal for couples and very romantic.

Fantastic. A beautiful cottage. Idyllic place.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place for a break. The cottage is beautiful. Homely, snug, wonderfully furnished and spotless. The village is very picturesque and the pub very welcoming with good food. My daughter loved the village's equestrian centre which was friendly and very accomodating and she was amazed by falcolnery centre at Moreton-in-Marsh (a short drive away, but highly recommended). I would recommend the cottage to anyone. If you like walking, exploring or sight-seeing there's loads to do, but if you just fancy a quiet, relaxing break anf loads of peace and quiet, it delivers that in spades.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Ian for taking the time to give us this excellent review. We often overlook the equestrian centre which is a real bonus to the village. As you rightly say, the village is indeed very pretty and The Mount a great place to eat or just to sit outside and admire the amazing views. Lots of places to visit around and about or just to stay put and soak in the tranquillity of this beautiful area. Cheaper than therapy that is for sure :) You have been a pleasure to deal with and I am hoping that you and your family will come and stay at The Old Cider Press sometime soon. Again, many thanks. Ann :)

Best Country Living

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is lovely,and made even better by the tiny village of Stanton with its golden stone structures and lush plants and flowers. Take an evening walk as the sun glows on the facades, up to the terrace of the Mount Inn for dinner or a nightcap, or just the great view!

The website should have some village photos, as the setting is splendid. We had a car and went to all the Cotswolds known villages - none as picturesque.

The cottage is very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The "loft" sitting area could use a lamp, as there is no lighting except what spills in from the living room.

Owner is truly hospitable and has thought of many details of comfort; you feel as in a family home.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write this excellent review. I am delighted that The Old Cider Press met with your expectations. The village is indeed an experience in itself - I still get that "pinch me" feeling whenever I drive into the Stanton. You are correct the surrounding area is indeed breath taking. I have taken note of your comment re the upper seating area and think a reading lamp would make a useful addition. We hope you come and stay with us again one day. Best wishes to you all.

WONDERFUL Stay at The Old Cider Press

  • 5 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 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 

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.

Copy and paste the link to see what 'The Telegraph' has to say about Stanton

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/uk/southernengland/11400492/Cotswolds-pub-walks.html

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.
