Property details

Nestled in the centre of the peaceful and picturesque village of Stanton, in the heart of the Cotswolds, you will find the Hay Loft. A charming 17th century converted Cotswold stone barn with many exposed beams, yet with a light and airy feel and good headroom for guests above 6'. Stanton is quintessentially Cotswolds, picture postcard pretty and a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The Mount Inn at top of the village has extensive views over both the village, the surrounding Cotswold countryside and the Vale of Evesham. Extremely popular, booking is recommended in this friendly, cosy public house serving good food and local Donnington Ale. The Cotswold Way runs through the village so it is the perfect place to stay if you enjoy walking and cycling.

The past couple of days have been relaxing and peaceful as it is a very photogenic house and village. We have enjoyed the views and walks before we came back to this comfortable place. Thank you for this lovely experience.

Thank you for letting us enjoy a magical Cotswold Christmas in your beautiful property. We enjoyed the homely atmosphere and all the little touches such as White Company reed diffusers. Thank you for one of the best hampers we have seen in over 10 years staying with RR. It was lovely to meet you also. All the best.

Great location for the first leg of our UK holiday. The accommodations at Hay Loft were ideal for our family. The welcome hamper was lovely. Weather co-operated for a visit to Hidcote.

A relaxing stay at the Hay Loft (not long enough). We enjoyed the area and the peace and quiet. Thank you.

In spite of rather a lot of heavy showers most days, we enjoyed some great walks from the door. Cottage is very cosy and we enjoyed the welcome pack! Two meals at The Mount were pretty good, although the best pub grub goes to Eight Bells in Chipping Campden and Black Horse at Naunton. Would definitely stay here again.

Enjoyed a lovely, relaxing short break in your delightful cottage. Quiet, scrumptious furnishings and in a lovely village. I drove my elderly mum around all the gorgeous Cotswold villages. Recommend Russells Fish & Chips and Hunters cafe - both in Broadway. We hope to be back one day.

Fabulous stay in this beautiful cottage. Particularly enjoyed the walk to Snowshill (nice to see the house where Bridgett Jones was filmed!) Thanks for a superb hamper. We too hope to be back!

Mum and I are back for our second visit and it's been as wonderful as our first! The autumn colours were just magnificent. Batsford Arboretum a lovely place to visit. A new pub we tried for lunch this time was the Plough at Ford. Food was excellent, large portions of home cooked food were consumed. Hay Loft is an oasis of calm and we just love it to bits. We'll definitely be back again.

An amazing, comfortable stay - so glad you have this space to "share"! Thank you - and we will spread the word (but only amongst a select few).

A wonderful time in this special part of the country. As previously described, a very comfortable and well presented cottage. We enjoyed walks up the hills when it was cool enough or just sitting on the patio watching the swifts dancing in the skies. Thank you Carolyn for the tasty hamper and attention to detail.

J, B & V, Cambridge, July 2016

Comfortable and cosy cottage - thank you for the lovely treats of homemade marmalade, strawberries in the fridge and flowers from the garden. Really thoughtful, homely touches that made me feel very welcome. Love the cryptic picture in the dining room.
Russell's Fish & Chips, Broadway - delicious food, reasonably priced but be warned, the portions are very generous!
Hidcote Gardens - stunning, but go early or later in the day to avoid the coach parties.

A P, Kent, July 2016

A perfect weekend - great walks around Stanton and Diamond Way - The Kings Arms at Bledington and Fox Inn at Oddington are fab. Give Daylesford a wide birth! Beds luxurious and cottage so comfortable. Thank you!!

E B, Nottinghamshire, July 2016

Superlatives don't do this cottage justice! It is absolutely idyllic, extremely comfortable, peaceful and just what I wanted for my mother's birthday. Everything has been positive including the weather - dry all week and quiet with a few sunny intervals. We have frequented far too many good pubs and restaurants - but that's what holidays are for! We'll be back.

C & D, Hertfordshire, July 2016

The Hay Loft is a beautiful cottage in one of the most delightful villages in the Cotswolds. The facilities are good, the cottage well prepared and comfortable and the welcome basket just spot on.

A lovely relaxing trip to this fairytale cottage! The views from Broadway Tower were amazing as was the sea bass at the Mount Inn. Great company too of course!

A beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. The Swan, Broadway Hotel and Russell's Fish and chips are great for food. Bourton on the Water great for a day out. Our 2.5 year old doesn't want to leave her "new house"!

Lovely! Cosy and comfortable - we really enjoyed our stay. All we needed was provided. Great dinner at The Mount Inn, just up the hill. Thank you.

We have had the most wonderful 2 weeks here and are genuinely sad to leave. The Granary is a very special place. The house is extremely cosy and comfortable and the scenery and surroundings are superb. Loved the sunny patio and the bird watching in the garden. Had excellent meals in the Three Choirs, the Kilcot Inn and The Roadmaker (good curries!). So many places to see around and about. Thank you Guy and Caroline for your hospitality and your attention to detail. We would love to return and bring the same great weather when we come back

Lovely stay in a beautiful cottage in a very pretty part of the world. Huffkins in Stow on the Wold was lovely for lunch. Stanway House is a very interesting visit. Thanks for having us, we will be back.

We arrived at The Granary after walking the South Downs Way and part of the South West Coast Path. We were looking for a comfortable, private, rural abode to hang our hats. The Granary exceeded our expectations. We received a generous and warm welcome. The views are mesmerising. We enjoyed lazy days in the sunshine looking out to the wheat field and woodland. We walked in The Forest of Dean, we read, we played Scrabble and we saw Henry IV (Parts I and II) at Stratford. We have had a perfect stay at The Granary, thank you so much Caroline and Guy.

A lovely cottage in the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds. You can't beat the view from the Mount Inn - good food and local ale too! If you are gluten free like myself then Tisanes tea rooms in Broadway do a great cream tea. The scenery makes a spectacular drive too. Great fun

SH, London, May 2014

Had a lovely time in this tranquil house. The kids (5+3) loved the Cotswolds. We visited the Falconry Centre, Chedworth Roman Villa, Rikki Tikki in Broadway and wandered around Chipping Campden. The Mount Inn was great, friendliest staff we have ever met. Thanks for a great holiday.
