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.
Spotlessly clean cottage, we didn't want to go home.
Hope to stay again as soon as we can.
Many thanks for the little touches - much appreciated.
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!!!
The cottage is absolutely as advertised and we have rarely stayed anywhere with as much character.
Very comfortable and a quiet location, hidden away.
Quality furniture and fittings.
A hairdryer would have been appreciated but, really, there is very little to complain about.
This was just the perfect dream setting for my engagement to my girlfriend. Beautiful thatched roof cottage, with high quality furnishings within. This was more like a home than a rental property and the love that was poured in to it showed in every part. My "fiance" absolutely loved it and we couldn't have wished for a better setting. Thank you Ann
We had a brilliant weekend for a friend's birthday. The cottage had everything we needed, was lovely and warm and cosy and felt really homely. We did arrive to find that the cleaner had not been in after the previous guests but one phone call later it was very quickly resolved and she was so apologetic - these things happen and the important thing is how it is resolved and 10 out of 10 to how this was resolved, thank you. We really had a fantastic weekend, it was a most beautiful village and we ate twice at The Mount which was excellent, glad we booked as very busy. Would definitely recommend the Cider Press to others and would stay there again ourselves, lovely :) :) :)
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.
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!
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.
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.
