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 village is also home to a small garden nursery with a wonderful array of plants and a small farm shop selling local produce, including asparagus (in season), cheese and delicious sausages.
