    “We absolutely loved our holiday at the Old Dairy.”

    It’s such a shame it’s not available next year otherwise we would have booked it again. The standard of accommodation is very good and we particularly liked having the luxury of an American style fridge freezer to stock up with plenty of food, which is handy as your local supermarket is in Evesham (7 miles away). The enclosed garden was so enjoyable, playing outdoor games and relaxing too. The local pub is perched on a hill with beautiful views and the food is of a good standard. The cottage ...

    It’s such a shame it’s not available next year otherwise we would have booked it again. The standard of accommodation is very good and we particularly liked having the luxury of an American style fridge freezer to stock up with plenty of food, which is handy as your local supermarket is in Evesham (7 miles away).

The cottage has everything you could possibly need. We also loved the local walks. Thanks for a lovely stay.

The property

The Old Dairy is a beautiful 17th century Cotswold stone property which sleeps six guests, in three bedrooms, with two modern bathrooms. Once the village dairy, this stunning house retains a wealth of character features including exposed wooden beams, stone mullion windows and an impressive exposed Cotswold stone chimney breast in the living room. These features have been complemented by contemporary interiors and modern facilities such as the inset wood burning stove, wireless internet access and three TVs. There is an immaculately presented garden at the rear, and off-street parking is available for two medium sized cars. The Old Dairy is situated in the unspoilt village of Stanton, a true chocolate-box village with honey-coloured Cotswold stone properties, a number of thatched cottages, the Church of St Michael and All Angels, and The Mount Inn, a highly regarded gastro-pub. Located on the hillside, this popular pub prides itself on its locally sourced ingredients, range of ales and breathtaking views across the Vale of Evesham. The village is surrounded by wonderful countryside, with many walks and cycle routes on its doorstep including the renowned Cotswold Way long distance walking trail which passes through the village itself and continues in the direction of neighbouring Stanway, a peaceful village which is dominated by Stanway House. This Jacobean mansion is open to the public in the summer months and boasts the tallest gravity-fed fountain in the world. For keen riders, Stanton is home to Cotswold Riding, an equine facility run by Jill Carenza which provides hacks for riders of all abilities. Stanton is well-placed for exploring the lovely towns and villages of the North Cotswolds including Winchcombe, Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold and Broadway, all home to a variety of restaurants, independent shops and tempting tearooms. The region offers a wide range of tourist attractions such as Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park, historic Sudeley Castle, the Lavender Fields in nearby Snowshill and the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway which follows a 28 mile round route from Broadway to the regency town of Cheltenham. Further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle and Oxford are also within easy reach for day trips. The Old Dairy is the perfect country hideaway for a gathering of friends or family who are seeking a relaxing break surrounded by the glorious Cotswold countryside.

About the location


Cheltenham 14 miles; Gloucester 25 miles.

Stanton is arguably one of the prettiest and most idyllic villages in the whole of the Cotswolds, located at the foot of the Shenberrow Hill in the Northern reaches of the Cotswolds. Without doubt it has one of the most stunning high streets in the region with ancient houses dating back to the 16th Century built in typical Cotswolds style with steeply pitched gables, mullioned windows and honey coloured limestone walls. The village also boasts two magnificent manor houses as well as a restored medieval cross and a church dating back to the Norman period.

The village has an Open Gardens Day which normally takes place in June, when the many beautiful gardens can be admired. There is a plethora of lovely walks including the famous Cotswold Way which traverses for 100 miles between Chipping Campden and Bath - that tracks through Stanton.

And for relaxation, the Mount Inn pub stands on a hill at the top of the village with spectacular views across the Vale of Evesham towards the Malvern Hills and Welsh mountains beyond.
