About Sarah Stanton

We are a family of 4 with 2 young children (as well as a spaniel called Roxy, chickens, bantams, 2 goats and 2 sheep!). The opportunity to rent out accommodation became increasingly apparent as "The Outhouse" was in limited use other than by family on visits. We took about the task of upgrading it to be as special as possible. The infrastructure, both internally and externally, was almost perfect already - we just needed to invest in furnishings, which we haven't held back on. Given a chance we chill out in there when we can. We book it out for ourselves too!

Sarah Stanton purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Sarah Stanton chose Cotswold district

The setting - it's amazing. We spent a long time looking for the right place for our family. The opportunity to rent out our "Outhouse" to business people and holiday makers was an added bonus. We've taken this opportunity very seriously and have focused on attention to detail. It's been available from the beginning of 2015 but we spent several months in 2014 getting it ready. For example, the wifi has been professionally installed as we felt the signal from the main house was too weak. The brand new TV lacked on the sound quality so we bought a special unit to make it sound far better. We could go on...

What makes this cottage unique

It's very close to both Gloucester and Cheltenham but in a rural setting. The tree-lined drive - as you approach it - puts you in the right frame of mind after either a social or business trip.

Amazing wildlife (green woodpeckers for example) is abundant.

It's the perfect place to relax with many rural attractions, but close to city life.

The best place we have stayed

  • 5 of 5

Of all the places we have stayed this is the best so far. Spacious, clean, comfortable beds, plenty of seating, lots of hot water, and easy parking. The kitchen is well equipped for making meals. The owner is very friendly, welcoming, and extremely helpful with suggestions for hikes, restaurants, and directions. We had an amazing stay here and would highly recommend it.

Excellent location for walking the Cotswolds Way

  • 4 of 5

Good location for using 2 cars to walk the northern part of the Cotswolds Way. Nice and clean and a good layout for 2 of us. Sarah was very welcoming and the eggs were an added bonus.
