The Old Cider Press is quite simply the most beautiful, welcoming and lovingly prepared holiday cottage that we have ever stayed in!
Furthermore, it sits in the most beautiful surroundings of Stanton........what a find! How lovely also to find a welcome pack awaiting us........We will of course be recommending to friends and just like Shwarshiwhatsit "We will be back" Roy & Ivy Jennings and Bethany Pritchard (Granddaughter).
Thank you so very much for taking the time to give us this fabulous review - of course I wholeheartedly agree with all you say - but then I am biased😁
I think it really does give future guests that little bit of extra confidence to come and stay at The Old Cider Press.
You have been a pleasure to deal with and I truly hope to have you, your family or friends stay with us in the future.
Wonderful accommodations in a very peaceful village
The Old Cider Press property is a wonderful place to stay. Very clean, well furnished and the amenities were very good - including good wifi and television service. The location is also a plus as the village is very peaceful and close to other towns with needed services.
Time to change the sign..................
This was our 5th visit to The Old Cider Press so that in itself must tell you how much we love the place.
My children have grown up staying here. My son is now tall enough to have to duck under the beam a couple of paces from the stairs. He swears blind it has been put there in the past 12 months and hasn't been there since the property was built around 300 years ago.
Since our last visit, my wife was so impressed with the toaster at the Old Cider Press we've bought the same one as we really need a bagel setting I'm told.
There's a sign in the kitchen saying 'Dinner is ready when the smoke alarm goes off'. This year I managed to make a full cooked breakfast each morning without setting it off. Granted not dinner, but still an improvement.
This place is stunning.
Wifi fabulous. BT TV package including sport channels very handy. The owners have spent money on buying the best electrical goods which is very rare in holiday cottages.
OK the mobile reception isn't great - but that's a real bonus if you want a break from work and with the Wifi being so good there's also a way people can get hold of you.
If it's available. Book it.
If it's not, change your dates!
WOW and thank you for this amazing review.
We do the best we can to make our cottage "more" than the run of the mill holiday cottage rental and it is good to know that we are hitting the mark.
It is always heartwarming to see guests returning (and in your case, year after year) what greater endorsement could we receive.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to write this review - and we hope you have many more enjoyable holidays in The Old Cider Press.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful Town
Really lovely clean cottage in a beautiful quiet village. The perfect place to get away from it all. The owners were very thoughtful providing, Milk, eggs, butter, bread, wine and mince pies on arrival. The cottage is well furnished and spotless. The village of Stanton is beautiful and quiet with a lovely pub the Mount Inn in walking distance. Had a lovely stay over the new year period.
Thank you for this amazing review. We really do appreciate your feedback - we are always looking for ways to improve what we offer and it is always heartwarming to know we are doing well.
You have been a delight to deal with and hopefully you will be back to stay at the OCP in the very near future.
A Christmas Break in a Lovely Cottage Situated in a Quaint Cotwold Village Setting
This thatched cottage, the middle of three in a beautifully renovated 17th century barn, fully met our expectations and more during our 4-day stay!
It is extremely well equipped with nothing amiss.
The first floor living area was ample and comfortable for the three of us and the location was peaceful making for easy relaxation.
Stanton is a typical quaint Cotswold village with most properties being built in the local limestone with limestone slate or thatched roofs dating back to the 16th century.
A visit to the Mount Inn on the edge of the village to sample the Donnington Brewery ales and to have a meal. Being part way up a steep climb helped to generate a thirst and appetite!
Nearby Broadway has shops, pubs and restaurants to cater for most needs.
We thoroughly recommend The Old Cider Press and its location for exploring the Cotwolds and to relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this glowing review. You and your family have obviously appreciated all the beauty and charm the cottage and Stanton has to offer.
I hope to see you (or familly and friends) staying with us again in the near future. You have been a pleasure to deal with.
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
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.
