Cotswold Way - Stanton

Stanton is probably one of the prettiest and most idyllic villages in the Cotswolds.  It takes its name from 'stan' (stone) from which it is built - similarly the neighbouring village of Stanway.  Sitting beneath the slopes of Shenbarrow Hill, little changed in this sleepy Cotswold village for hundreds of years.  The village contains a number of 16th and 17th century houses as well as a restored , medieval cross and a church in which some Norman work is still evident.  Stanton shows no sign of commercialism, other than the village pub.  There are three or four B&B here.

The Cotswold Way

The Cotswold Way is a long distance walking trail that spans over 102 miles (164km) of beautiful English countryside. With more than 20 stops, it passes through many picturesque villages and runs close to a significant number of historical sites such as Hailes Abbey, Sudeley Castle and the Neolithic Burial Chamber at Belas Knap. In 2007, it was formally recognized as a National Trail and has long been considered as an essentially English experience.
