The Cotswolds Village of Broadway
Broadway The Cotswolds Village
Broadway, The Cotswolds
Broadway in the Cotswolds is an unforgettable place to visit, or a great place to stay so you can venture out and explore The Cotswolds and Worcestershire from here. Or head out on foot and take in the views following one of the many beautiful walks across open countryside.
The well kept High Street is lined with great big horse chestnut trees
…and the grand buildings hold boutique shops, delicatessens, interiors, museums, hotels and homes. The whole village is a mix of large period houses, open countryside views and the well known honey coloured Cotswold stone cottages are a definite staple here!
The wide high street through
Broadway was named for that very reason, it’s an ancient ridgeway
and originally the main road from
Worcester to London.
Maybe these special characteristics were what attracted well known artists, writers, and performing artists to spend time here.
Greats such as William Morris, J.M. Barrie and Mary Anderson were known to have spent time in Broadway and the furniture designer Gordon Russell grew up in Broadway and had a workshop there – A design museum dedicated to his name is now open in Broadway The Cotswolds.
With many independent shops, cafes and of the course the very fabulous Broadway Deli, it’s a day out in one village!
