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 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 cottage in a beautifull village

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic cottage located in a beautiful village with walking trails to several of the most beautiful towns in the Cotswolds. The house has everything you need, very well equipped. The list with descriptions of how to access and with information about the surroundings was perfect. The owner was quick to answer emails and cared about our confort. Perfect place! I will recommend it to friends and family. We are looking forward to coming back soon!

  • 5 of 5

It's our first time to come to UK, however we r so lucky to find this gorgeous cottage. We stayed in the old cider press for 3 nights. The location is perfect for day trips throughout the Cotswolds, a number of fine restaurants nearby, interesting places to discover, we also have the picnic at Moreton-in-Marsh. So much love in this little cottage we felt instantly at home.We are looking forward to coming back soon!

We really want guests to feel that they are "home from home" in the cottage. The village itself and the surrounding area is so magical and enchanting - we work very hard to ensure that the cottage adds to the experience.

Perfect relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Old Cider Press for two weeks and were very happy here. After a rather stressful trip and three day stay in Manchester, we needed somewhere where we could relax. This was perfect.

Last year a friend and I walked the Cotswold Way. Stanton was probably the prettiest village in a succession of pretty towns and villages. When I described it to my wife she said, "I want to go there". We were very lucky to find a place to rent here.

The cottage is beautifully appointed, with all the resources we could hope for, and enough supplies to get us started. The owner clearly cares a lot about keeping it attractive and functional (not always compatible criteria).

The location is perfect for day trips throughout the Cotswolds, a number of fine restaurants nearby (our favorite was Chef's Dozen in Chipping Campden), interesting places to discover (don't miss Snowshill House), with a lovely nest to return to in the evening.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this excellent review. You are quite right Stanton really is something else, the tranquility and magical quality of the village is something many guests remark upon. We really do care about keeping the cottage as attractive and functional as we can. As you rightly say there are a wealth of fine restaurants and places to visit in and around the area. We appreciate that reviews just like yours really do help future guests decide to stay with us - so thank you once again. You have been a delight to deal with and I really do hope you choose to stay with us again. 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.
