“Never Again”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We were walking the Cotswold Way. Got there and no one was home. Called two different numbers we had for that property. Finally got someone. Turns out the back door was unlocked and we were suppose to just go in and find the note on the desk. Got attacked by their dog, smoked out when the fire fell out of the fireplace, fortunately the house didn't burn down. The furniture appears to date back to when the house was built. So does the dust.

It was bad from the start and just stayed that way until breakfast. They hired someone to do breakfast and that was good, but not good enough to ever get us to come back again. Never again.

Room Tip: Yes, I would advise getting a room somewhere else.

We had a great time at the Vine B&B in Stanton. We had the room in the attic, which was romantic and pretty. The welcome there is great and the breakfast is glorious! The village is one of the most beautiful in Cotswolds and there are plenty of nice restaurants around to accommodate you for your lunches and dinners (I strongly recommend the Broadway Hotel restaurant in Broadway, and the Mount In pub in Stanton).

We combined our stay at the B&B with some horse hacks at the Jill Carranza Equestrian Center, which is the horse riding club of the B&B owner. We had the best hacks of our life there and it was worth every penny. The horses are good and the instructors are brilliant (special thanks to Charlotte, Alan and Jackie). If you are tired of being treated like a beginner (when you are not) by some clubs that do not want to run any risk anymore, then this is the place to go. What a great freedom there and the scenery are magic.

Just go for it, I know that we'll be back asap!!

Beautiful B&B in the tiny village of Stanton outside of Broadway. Hard to find (in the dark), but worth it once you are there. Warm fire in the fireplace to great you when you get in. The breakfasts were superb - and the hospitality was fabulous. Great when paired with horseback riding at the owner's Equestrian Centre down the road.

On first glance, beautiful village & beautfiful bed and breakfast. Once inside things began to deteriorate. There was no one to greet us or show us to our room or explain about breakfast. There was a short note to tell us where our room was. We had booked a family room for my mum, sister and myself. The room was tiny with one double (four poster) and a single about 6 inches apart. There was no toilet only a tiny shower in one corner and a hand basin next to the toothpaste splattered wardrobe. The mirror over the hand basin was also splattered with someone else's spit and toothpaste. The basin itself had used soap from a previous guest in it. The towels did not smell very clean and the room felt grubby and the canopy over the bed was dusty and ripped. There was no fire evacuation plan anywhere to be seen in the room and there was no way of locking the room whilst we were out for the evening. The electrics in the room were extremley dated and only one plug socket was available however an extension block was available. Once plugged in to have both the kettle and hair dryer on this caused a trip hazard in the already cramped room. A breakfast menu had been placed in the room for us to complete by 7.30 that evening for the following morning stating what time we would like breakfast, the choices being 8.00am or 9.15am. We stated our preference to be 9.15. The following morning we were woken at 7.50 asking if we could come for breakfast at 8 or 10.00am instead of our preferred option of 9.15 as a hen party all wanted serving at 9.15. To oblige we agreed to 10am but still had to wait until 10.20 to be seated for breakfast. On paying we had to travel to the equestrian centre to pay as there was no chip and pin facility in the house. We paid the £97 per room reluctantly and were never asked if everything had been ok. I would never recommend this B&B to anyone and would strongly suggest that a health and safety inspector should visit this establishment. I would rather sleep in the car than stay in this B&B.

Room Tip: Go to another B&B

Lovely B & B set in the picturesque Cotswold village of Stanton. Perfect location for touring or after a long days hike. In the evening you can relax in front of a roaring fire enjoying a hot beverage before snuggling down in the cosy atmosphere of the 17th century bedrooms. A hearty breakfast here will set you up for the days actvities. Rooms have ensuite shower and wash hand basin and rooms are serviced by a lavatories a couple of strides across the landing from the bedrooms. Highly recommended small and friendly. A must do is to ride into the hills on horse back available locally

This is a wonderful B&B which we have stayed at twice so far, and would recommend to anyone planning a visit to the Cotswolds. The village of Stanton is only a short drive from Broadway, but it benefits from not being "touristified" and thus offers a much more authentic experience. The B&B itself has very cosy, comfortable bedrooms - each with four poster beds - and an en-suite shower. The toilet is in a shared bathroom in the hallway. The downstairs area offers a really snug little sitting room, complete with open fire and one of the most affectionate cats we've ever had the pleasure to meet! The breakfast is exceptionally good, and I would definitely recommend the whisky porridge if you don't feel up to the full English. Horse riding is also available, for an extra fee, and though we did not try this ourselves, other guests staying at the Vine heartily recommended it. Stanton is very quiet and very peaceful, but for night time entertainment there is an excellent pub (the punnishly named "Mount Inn") perched on top of a small hill overlooking Stanton. The pub serves delicious food and a fine selection of local ales. For the money, this B&B offers superb value, and comes highly recommended for anyone that likes their stay to be cosy, comfortable and quaint.
