Discover luxury and boutique hotels in Broadway
Honey-tinted cottages, verdant hills and a peaceful pace of life — there’s a reason the Worcestershire village of Broadway is known as the jewel of the Cotswolds. Start with a stroll down the namesake High Street, lined with age-old pubs and bijou boutiques, then stop by the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery to discover its cultural clout – Elgar, William Morris and JM Barrie have all called this village home. Heading for the hills? With the famed Cotswold Way on your doorstep, you’re in prime position to take a hike, and the many treasures of Snowshill Manor are but a leisurely leafy-lane drive away.
When to go
There’s no bad time to escape to the Cotswolds; spring and summer are perfect for sunny strolls, Broadway’s prized horse-chestnut trees sport golden hues (and conkers) in the autumn, and winter snow transforms the village into a Christmas-card-worthy wonderland. Whenever you go, it’s best to avoid bank-holiday weekends.
PlanesThe nearest international airport is Birmingham, around an hour’s drive away. Fly there from European cities including Dublin, Frankfurt, Paris and Rome; direct intercontinental flights from Dubai, New York and more touch down there, too.
TrainsRegular trains from London Paddington to nearby Evesham and Moreton-in-Marsh make reaching Broadway by train a breeze. Both towns have handy bus services to Broadway; otherwise, it’s only a 10-mile drive or taxi ride.
AutomobilesIt’s a straightforward two-and-a-half-hour drive from London via the M40, or a little over an hour from Birmingham. Take or hire your own wheels to explore neighbouring villages and make the most of the dreamy country-lane drives.
