In a Nutshell
Sleepy, unspoilt, beautiful - Stanton is a step back in time. No tourist crowds here, just a village that seems to have stopped time; a great place for a relaxing stroll. We often combine Stanton with Broadway for a day out.
Parking and Pooping
Stanton is a small village south west of Broadway, just off the B4632. Approaching from the north there is free parking on the right hand side of the road, in a rough car park just outside of the Village Hall (don't go through the gap into the Village Hall section of the car park as there is a charge here). From here, walk past the cricket ground into the village, joining the High St. There is plenty of grass at the car park and on the verges as you walk around, so pup will be fine.
Stanton is wonderfully quiet. The roads, even the High St are pretty much deserted even mid season and generally the only cars are those of the residents. Walking therefore is easy along the road or the pavements and you're more likely to be disturbed by horse back riders than heavy traffic.
Keeping the Humans Amused
Stanton is all about the beauty of the village. There no tourist trappings or any shops of note. Instead, enjoy a stroll along the High St and take in the chocolate box buildings and manicured hedgerows. There are riding stables nearby and you'll notice that a number of the houses on the High St are holiday lets.
As you might expect by now, Stanton offers little in the way of refreshments. The local pub has fine views though and can be found on the Shenbarrow Hill. Broadway is just 5 minutes away if you want a choice of cafes.
