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.

Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely spectacular!!! My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on a 3-week trip to the UK for our 30th wedding anniversary. It was, without a doubt, our very favorite place out of all the places we stayed on this trip - I did NOT want to leave! Everything about it was so inviting and appealing - from the yummy fresh baked bread, cake and wine waiting for us when we arrived, to the charming and lovely decor, to the attention to detail in every room (loved the "Old Country Roses" china - I collect vintage and antique English tea cups), to the quaint and gorgeous surrounding countryside. We could go on and on and on about this place! Loved watching the horses go clip-clopping by right outside our bedroom window from time to time. It was so incredibly cozy you just wanted to curl up on the couch or in one of the beds with a good book and stay there forever. Honestly, your cottage is second to none - truly outstanding. Thank you ever so much for your hospitality, all the wonderful information you provided about the area, for creating such a stunning home, and for helping to make our brief stay in the Cotswolds one of the most memorable experiences of our 30 years together. Wow. Just wow. We will recommend it to any and all our friends and family who would enjoy staying in an English cottage. We hope we can come back someday soon. Thank you so, so much!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this truly amazing review (I keep reading it:) - we work really hard to make staying at The Old Cider Press as good as it can be and are always looking for more ways to make it a real "experience". You have picked up on all the aspects we have worked really hard on and it is so heart warming to get a review like this. I have passed it on to our lovely Louise and I know she will be as delighted as I am. She works extremely hard and we know we are fortunate to have her "on board". We hope you do come and stay with us again some time, and a recommendation to your friends and family is praise indeed. It is always a particular pleasure for us to welcome our guests from America. A big, big thank you. Ann :)

We had a lovely stay. The cottage is beautiful in one of the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds. Access to all near towns and villages is easy from this location and some lovely walks from the moment you leave the front door.

An Authentic Cotswolds Stay

  • 4 of 5

What a lovely thatched roof cottage! I had no idea where Stanton was when I booked the accommodation, I just wanted to experience the Cotswolds and we truly did! The cottage was gorgeous and Stanton was a quiet place with no shops, but lovely cottages to wander through, great walking and then of course there is the Inn at the top of the hill!! The Old Cider Press is beautifully decorated in an old world way, loved it!

Exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for somewhere quiet and peaceful, yet near enough to larger places for days out. this ticked all those boxes. It is a beautiful little property, it was clean and tidy throughout and there was even little extras like the cakes/butter/fruit/milk/bread etc in the fridge, a kitchen with every utensil you need, 2 good sized bedrooms(although we only needed one), a nice open plan living space on the 1st floor leading into the kitchen and a little extra quiet spot up on a small 2nd floor. The area was very quiet at night and the mornings were the same, tranquility to us when we live in a very busy and noisy area. We visited Cheltenham and went to do the Shakespeare experience at Stratford Upon Avon. Shops and pubs are only a 3 or 4 minutes drive away and the sat nav found the property very easily. We are already considering going back next year if we can.

Beautiful cottage,Beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time in this beautiful village. It was quiet and peaceful. Our daughters loved everything about it.

The cottage was exactly as shown, and a lovely cosy getaway. We really loved the travel book and info that was available in the living room table. It helped us find places to visit. Ann was wonderful to deal with, always prompt and helpful, and we will be returning soon!

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.
