Broadway

Worcestershire

The beautiful and historic Cotswold village of Broadway is a memorable place to stay and a perfect base from which to tour the local area and enjoy the stunning walks. The pretty High Street is lined with horse chestnut trees and includes a mixture of period houses and picturesque honey coloured Cotswold stone cottages which have lured visitors for centuries.

The street through Broadway was an ancient ‘ridgeway’ and the main road from Worcester to London. It is a wide street or ‘broad way’ hence the name. The village also has an interesting artistic heritage which includes some well known artists, writers, and performing artists such as William Morris, John Singer Sargent, Francis D Millet, J.M. Barrie and Mary Anderson. The furniture designer Gordon Russell grew up in Broadway and had a workshop here – we now have a great Design Museum.

At the heart of England, The Cotswolds is the largest of 40 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) in England and Wales, known and appreciated by visitors from all corners of the world. Broadway lies on the Walking Trail “The Cotswold Way” which runs from the market town of Chipping Campden to the City of Bath.

Standing 65ft high Broadway Tower is the second highest point in the Cotswolds and sits dramatically on top of an ancient beacon site. The brainchild of Capability Brown, Broadway Tower was built for the Earl of Coventry in 1798 by renowned 18th Century architect James Wyatt.
