Midsummer Cottage is a delightful 17th century Grade II listed Cotswold stone cottage with a very pretty garden. It is beautifully furnished and renovated to a very high standard. The sitting room has original exposed beams and a wood burning stove set in a traditional stone fireplace.

Stanton is one of the prettiest, most peaceful villages lying within this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the cottage is right at the heart of it. Little has changed in over 300 years and the houses are built in typical Cotswold style.

The village inn, The Mount, stands at the top end of the village with spectacular views across the Vale of Evesham towards the Malvern Hills and serving good food and local ale. You will also discover a small garden nursery and farm shop selling an array of lovely, local produce as well as the parish church of St. Michael dating back to the 15th century.
