Gingerbread Village of Broadway

Broadway village looks like it is straight out of a storybook. Cobblestone alleyways, the main road that is lined with horse chestnut trees, perfect little honey coloured cottages and period houses.

While there, we strolled through the quaint streets and popped into many shops and a lovely cafe for a cup of tea. The entire town exudes that rustic charm that I love so much about the countryside.

The town is filled with little antique, art & home shops, interspaced with pretty little homes.

Broadway is the perfect base for adventures in the Cotswolds, whether you choose to stay in the village or explore the countryside and other idyllic villages. Broadway lies beneath Fish Hill (that’s where we stayed at The Fish Hotel, you can read about it here and here), in the county of Worcestershire and close to the border of Gloucestershire. Broadway is just 2 hours from central London.

Just 5 minutes drive from the village we found something that I have a real soft spot for in the Cotswolds.

Standing 65ft high Broadway Tower has a Saxon look and it’s the second highest point in the Cotswolds. Apparently, on a clear day, you can see up to 16 counties from the top of the Tower. The tower also has a museum and a little shop, but we didn’t go in, instead, we went for a brisk walk.

Broadway Tower is an ideal place to start your countryside walk because it’s conveniently located on the famous Cotswolds Way and then there is a big parking lot on site. And the views are nothing short of spectacular.

Broadway Tower Country Park is home to a herd of Red Deer.

And some sheep that live in these rolling fairytale hills.

We had a little walk around the hills and took in all the charm around us.

After your walk, you can pop in for some afternoon tea or some lovely presents in this contemporary conversion of a Cotswold Stone Barn. Morris & Brown has a cafe with home cooked lunches and a small store with beautiful accessories and homeware.

The perfect destination for a walk with outstanding views, history and inspiring nature.

      Yes, the deer were amazing, especially the stag standing there so proudly. And the village was just so beautiful.

    The village looks so great, it’s like being in a movie!.. I’d actually love to live there for a little bit and feel disconnected from all these buildings of Dubai! Buildings detox 😛

    • 15th December 2016 / 11:06 am

      It truly feels like a detox even if it’s just for a weekend – I highly recommend. It’s like being in the Christmas movie Holiday 😉
