Thatched Cottage, The Cotswolds

Family-friendly cottage in Broadway
A wonderful opportunity to experience archetypal English thatch cottage living for up to 6 guests in iconic Broadway, The Cotswolds. This lovely thatched cottage - of which only a few remain and is walking distance to sites, shops and olde English pubs - is peacefully located in the stunning and unmissable Cotswolds 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 such as OKA which is set in a beautiful Georgian House on the High Street 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 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, running along the Cotswold Edge escarpment of the Cotswold Hills in England.

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 Vale of Evesham is the fruit and vegetable basket of England and has for many centuries supported a number of communities that have thrived on its fertile soil. Drained by the River Avon and with the town of Evesham as its centre, the Vale includes land in south Worcestershire, south Warwickshire and north Gloucestershire.

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.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe. 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.

Broadway has a number of places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit most tastes and budgets. The list below is a sample of the options available:

Lovely home in Broadway
We had a great time at the property. Easy check-in and great communication with the host. The property was really lovely. Spotlessly clean. The three bedrooms were all very comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped with all necessary amenities and more. We had our breakfast out in the back interrupted only by the bleating of the sheep. The location was awesome - easy to walk into town yet quiet in the evening. One of the best properties we've stayed in and we've stayed in a lot. 5 stars!

5/5 Excellent

Amazing stay
My family came all the way from Dallas to stay at this lovely cottage. Our trip revolved around the schedule of when this cottage was available. I am a big fan of Agatha Christie and it has been my dream to stay in a thatched-roof cottage and this one gave all of us the best experience. Everything was available for us and the owner thought of every convenient and necessary factor to make it easy and enjoyable for us. Thank you! We wish we could have stayed longer.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful well equipped cottage. We had a a wonderful stay.
The cottage was beautiful and we had a wonderful stay. We were 6 adults - plenty of space to cook eat and relax. So many touches and useful items to make our stay special. We parked 3 cars and then walked into Broadway just a 5-10 minute walk. Great communication and would like to thank Elizabeth for being so accommodating.

4/5 Good

Idyllic location
Lovely place for a family Christmas. If we stayed in Broadway at other times of year we would probably eat out mostly, but if you want to do much cooking there, take your own roasting dishes etc. It didn’t matter to us, but for info, there is no microwave oven. Definitely take torches (we have them on our phones, but at this time of year you need them for children) for evening walks home from the village. Also take your own shower gel, shampoo etc as it’s a bit random what’s there. On balance, excellent rental property in a really beautiful village full of lovely shops, eateries & galleries. We will certainly consider returning.
