Broadway Village, Broadway, Chipping Campden & surrounding area
Set close to the heart of Broadway on the upper end of the High Street, Bay House Cottage is an absolute beauty of a Cotswold Holiday cottage. Once upon a time, not too long ago, this used to be Broadway's very own exclusive wine and cheese store which kept the well-to-do fed and watered in fine wine and hence why the unique and unmissable bay windows look so attractive. Today, the owners have restored the entire building, beautifully, to provide spacious accommodation for six people with three ensuite bathrooms - absolutely ideal for families or groups of friends. The natural colours and hues throughout are a-typical of the area, while the huge sofas and vast dining table give the ground floor a pleasing country feel. As the house is on the upper side of the High Street, it has the benefit of being very quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the lower side and yet you're just 200 yards from the nearest pub or cafe! It's hard not to impressed with this sophisticted holiday home.

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!!
