Monk's Retreat in Gloucestershire, a cottage in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire: Monk's Retreat exterior

High above village,peace,tranquillity & views.Beams,antiques & Persian rugs.

Stanton is a quiet picturesque circa 17c. village on the edge of the Cotswold Hills, only three miles from Broadway, with many good pubs & restaurants in the area. The Cotswold Way passes through the village.

The Monk’s Retreat is a unique, charming and peaceful cottage adjacent to the farmhouse with the bedroom balcony overlooking the sitting room evoking images of a hayloft. Tastefully furnished with antiques to compliment the modern amenities. There is a gas cooker and dishwasher in the quirky kitchen that in days gone by was used to press the grapes for our home made wine, the terrace overlooks our baby vineyard!

The Mount Inn serves the local Donnington ale and good food with stunning views over the vale towards Cleeve Hill and the Welsh Mountains (on a clear day) and the Toddington GWR Steam railway can be seen puffing by.

It is an ideal centre to explore the Cotswolds on foot or by car.

Snowshill Lavender,
Snowhill Manor,
Prescott Hill Climb,
Stanway House,
Chastleton House,
