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.

PERFECT. AGAIN

  • 5 of 5

I said I'd return. And I did. This time with children. They loved it too and want to return. It felt like home. There can be no greater compliment from a child. Nor are there enough superlatives to describe the Old Cider Press. We'll be back.

Perfect. Again

  • 5 of 5

12 months ago I said I'd return. And I did. But this time with children. They want to return now too. So I was right - it really is a very special place and you will not be disappointed - apart from when it's time to leave. So we'll be back. Again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to give us this wonderful review (once again:) There can't be any greater compliment than a return booking - and especially from someone such as yourself being the owner of a prestigious travel company. Great to know we are getting it right:) Looking forward to your next stay. Ann :)

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to give us this wonderful review. Stanton has just got a mention in "The Telegraph" http://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/uk/southernengland/11400492/Cotswolds-pub-walks.html which we were excited to see. We are delighted that you felt so at home in the cottage (and yes I agree - it is a very romantic place:) Thank you for the fabulous compliments, we try very hard to maintain high standards and it is just so heart warming to know that they are appreciated. Hopefully we will be able to welcome you back in the very near future. Best wishes to you both Ann :)

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 :)

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.

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.
