Hidden in a quiet corner of Broadway's High Street, this gorgeous and romantic retreat offers a perfect option for a couple looking to enjoy some peace and quiet in one of the Cotswolds' most attractive villages. Located down a little private pathway, this delightful little barn conversion offers smart, cleverly designed self catering accommodation that is stylish and appealing. The ground floor has a living room and galley kitchen - well equipped indeed, while upstairs is sweet bedroom in the eaves. Outside is an enclosed, private courtyard garden which faces south and is a bit of a sun trap. What really got us excited though, was the location, as it is rare to find a cottage like this at the 'top' of the High Street, which means you are in the prime spot, surrounded by stunning Cotswolds buildings and very much in the heart of quintessential England.
So sweet you could eat it!

Broadway, quite simply, is world famous and regarded as one of the most beautiful villages in Britain with it's numerous Cotswold stone houses and cottages, ancient chestnut trees and impressive High Street. Broadway has sometimes been described as the 'Jewel of the Cotswolds' due in the main to its stunning look and presentation. The name 'Broad Way' is due to the wide main street centred around The Village Green which is lined with red chestnut trees and many classic Cotswold stone buildings, some dating as far back as the 16th century.
The village has some excellent pubs, The Swan and The Crown and Trumpet to name two along with a very famous hotel The Lygon Arms, which does quality food. The High Street is very long and at the Upper End it really is quite stunning, almost dreamy and too good to be true! There are some very good shops especially antique shops.
The region around Broadway is similarly gorgeous, with some amazing villages. We particularly recommend Stanton, Stanway and Snowshill as worth visiting. There is a circular walk to take all of these in. (There are some good pubs along the way too.)
Broadway is a perfect base for touring the Cotswolds, with Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon both only fifteen miles away. There are also many National Trust properties and gardens nearby, with a wealth of places of interest and historic towns. For those who prefer to explore the area in depth there are many areas to go walking with Broadway also being on the Cotswold Way and Broadway Tower (at the top of Fish Hill) offering one of the most spectular views of the Cotswolds. A must visit location!!
