Day 1 - Set yourself up for a day of sightseeing and adventure with a full English breakfast. The leading food shops in Broadway are along Kennel Street which is where you’ll find Collins of Broadway. This family-run business keeps locals stocked with sausages and bacon made from pigs reared locally, as well as a good selection of groceries and other goodies in their store and via their home delivery service. Alternatively, make your way to Broadway Deli or one of the town’s other excellent cafes and tea rooms and save yourself the cooking (after all you are on holiday!).
After breakfast, it’s time to explore. The best way to experience the charm of Broadway is on foot so take your time as you meander down the cobbled lanes and peaceful streets. Broadway Tower is a Cotswold landmark and around an hour’s walk from the centre of town where the views towards Wales over the Severn Valley are certainly worth the physical exertion required to reach the tower. If you are feeling energetic, then continue along the Cotswold Way to Dovers Hill and Chipping Campden and enjoy a pub lunch and some shopping in this friendly town. It only takes 10 minutes to drive back from Chipping Campden to Broadway, or take the number 1 bus service in under 20 minutes. The bus leaves from the town hall four times a day.
An alternative way to get around is by bicycle. Being on a bike gives the ability to go a little further, and there is an excellent route from Broadway to Chipping Campden and Bourton-on-the-Water that goes via the Slaughters and the Donnington Brewery.
After a busy day put your feet up in front of an open fire or sit in the garden with a glass of wine and marvel at the clarity of the stars unhindered by light pollution.
Day 2 - A morning in Broadway can involve browsing the displays at the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery curated by the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. The museum is in a former coaching inn built in the mid 17th Century and older than some of the exhibits. Broadway is also home to the Gordon Russell Museum as well as an excellent children’s adventure playground and the Gloucestershire Warwick Heritage Railway.
Local attractions include the Cotswold Falconry Centre, Cotswolds Distillery, Cotswold Farm Park, Cotswold Motoring Museum, and Cotswold Lavender (we sense a theme here!). Take home a unique souvenir from the Little Soap School where you can learn to make your own soap and skincare products, and there are several reputable cooking schools in the vicinity. The National Trust manages Snowshill Manor and Garden as well as Hidcote Manor Gardens, both of which are in easy reach of Broadway. Stratford-Upon-Avon is only a 30-minute drive from town, as is Cheltenham for a day at the races or shops.
Whatever the season or your reason for staying in Broadway, this charming Cotswold town never disappoints its visitors. Even if you only stay for a short time, the relaxing atmosphere of the beautiful countryside will leave you feeling refreshed and energised.
