Stanway - Cotswolds Travel Guide

Located just one mile from Stanton is Stanway a tiny hamlet with little stone cottages, a thatched cricket pavilion & an impressive manor, Stanway House. This impressive property has been in the Tracey family since 1580s, Gate House 1630s, Timothy Strong one of the locally renowned Cotswolds craftsman worked on the house. The Strong family were so well known for their craftsmanship they worked in London after the Great Fire in 1666 & on important buildings such as St Pauls Cathedral. Like many manor houses in order to keep on top of the hefty maintenance they require, this property is opened to the public a couple of days a week during the summer months. The manor has also diversified, setting up a Micro Brewery. It can be rented out for events & has been used as a filming location, most recently for the Father Brown BBC murder mystery series. On occasions you may spot the impressive water fountain in the ground of Stanway House. It is in fact the most powerful gravity fed foundation in the world! Blasting a single jet 300ft into the air!


Sir James Barrie the author of Peter Pan, spent summers at Stanway during the 1920's to 1932. The cricket pavilion was presented to the village by Sir James Barrie, this thatched wooden cricket pavilion is set on staddle stones across the road from the main house. Barrie played cricket with other famous authors of the time such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle who wrote Sherlock Holmes, against the local villagers. ​
