    “Such a beautiful property in a simply idyllic location.”

    The cottage is fully equipped with everything you would need for the perfect getaway. Whether you are eating & drinking in the kitchen/diner which is a fab size or simply relaxing in the cosy lounge in front of the fire. As soon as we walked in we felt at home, The Old Dairy has a very warm welcoming feel to it even on a cold winters day, we had a fantastic stay, thank you.

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.
