A wonderful opportunity to experience quintessential English thatched cottage living in the stunning Cotswold village of Broadway. This lovely 400 year old thatched cottage is presented to a very high standard and is peacefully located in the stunning Cotswolds village of Broadway, which is often referred to as the 'jewel of the Cotswold' and the 'show village of England'. Broadway is well known for its excellent art galleries, antique and modern furniture stores and let's not forget all the wonderful restaurants, cafe's, deli's, pubs and gift shops. The village is also perfectly placed for exploring the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare and the royal spa town of Cheltenham which is great for theatre ...A wonderful opportunity to experience quintessential English thatched cottage living in the stunning Cotswold village of Broadway. This lovely 400 year old thatched cottage is presented to a very high standard and is peacefully located in the stunning Cotswolds village of Broadway, which is often referred to as the 'jewel of the Cotswold' and the 'show village of England'. Broadway is well known for its excellent art galleries, antique and modern furniture stores and let's not forget all the wonderful restaurants, cafe's, deli's, pubs and gift shops. The village is also perfectly placed for exploring the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare and the royal spa town of Cheltenham which is great for theatre and retail therapy. Chipping Campden, Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold are all a short drive away. Additionally, the Cottage is moments from the Cotswold Way which is a 102-mile (164 km) long-distance footpath. A legacy of the Broadway Artists' Colony is that the village has several of the country's best art galleries. There are also a number of restaurants, pubs and tea shops, as well as a range of gift and clothes shops. Relaxation, retail therapy and good food and drink make Broadway a very popular place to stay and visit throughout the year. The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides'.The area is defined by the bedrock of Jurassic limestone that creates a type of grassland habitat rare in the UK and that is quarried for the golden coloured Cotswold stone. It contains unique features derived from the use of this mineral; the predominantly rural landscape contains beautiful stone-built villages, historical towns and stately homes and gardens. In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops. The town of Chipping Campden is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived occasionally in Broadway Tower, a folly, now part of a country park. Chipping Campden is also known for the annual Cotswold Olympic Games, a celebration of sports and games dating back to the early 17th century. You may also wish to visit the following attractions and historical sites. •Blenheim Palace •Warwick Castle •Snowshill Manor •Hidcote •Sudeley Castle •Hailes Abbey The cottage contains a wealth of traditional character features, including original oak beams, windows and doors. This cottage offers a memorable stay in one of The Cotswolds most beautiful and thriving villages. You can walk to the High St from the cottage. The nearest pub is a 6 minute walk and offers good food, outdoor seating and live music on certain nights. Further pubs, cafes and restaurants are all walking distance. You'll find a range of magazines, books, board games, chess set and deck of cards for you to enjoy during your stay. The cottage also offers complimentary Wi-Fi/broadband. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs. 2 of the bedrooms contain king sized beds and the middle room contains a double bed. Each bedroom has an antique wardrobe and drawer space for you to store or hang your clothes or your purchases from the lovely shops on the High Street. The lawned garden enjoys beautiful rural views and hopefully the sound of a sheep or two from the neighbouring fields. There's an outdoor seating area plus a BBQ for alfresco dining. The rear garden is enclosed and is safe for children. Cycle hire, including delivery and collection can easily be arranged for you. The maximum occupancy of the property, including its grounds, is six guests, at any point during your stay. The property has top quality furnishings and fittings, television, wireless broadband, Bluetooth stereo, TV and all bed linen, towels and tea towels. For your convenience we supply tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder & toilet roll. No smoking is permitted. Two night minimum stay. Great rates for 1 week stays.More

About the neighbourhood
Broadway is a popular tourist base as well as a destination in its own right, having convenient access to many major sights of central England and the Welsh borders. Whether looking to walk the Cotswold Way, retrace the steps of Shakespeare or simply stand back and soak in the timeless atmosphere, Broadway is the centre of many holidays. By no means a museum, the whole area buzzes with working farms and small businesses. There are few better ways to start the day than with a deep breath of clean air and the sunshine streaming over the rolling Malvern hills. Broadway is often described as 'the quintessential Cotswold village.' Located at the northern edge of the Cotswold region, the unique honey-coloured stone houses and 'olde worlde' charm make it one of the best known places around....
Getting around
If you are happy to stay in Broadway then a car is not required. Bus access is available in Broadway but a car or push bike is best to explore The Cotswolds. Trains operate nearby, the nearest station is about 4 miles away.
