Things To Do

Eating

When it comes to eateries in Broadway you’re truly spoilt for choice, with a wide selection of independent cafés, restaurants and pubs to enjoy within a short drive Swallows Rest.

For those in search of a real treat, Russell’s of Broadway is the ideal choice; a Michelin-guide favourite serving up sophisticated, modern British cuisine along Broadway’s high street. The renowned Lygon Arms, located on the high street, is also a great choice for more formal evening meals, with the Lygon Bar & Grill offering a selection of locally-sourced dishes in a stunning Tudor dining room setting.

For more laid-back all-day dining, Number 32 Broadway offers a fantastic menu spanning brunch- early supper, serving up a selection of light bites, pizzas and sharer-boards with a contemporary-cool feel. Russell’s Fish and Chips is also a must-visit for those in search of a slap-up meal with a distinctly refined feel courtesy of the team behind Russell’s of Broadway, as is Broadway Deli; a treasure-trove of local delicacies, fresh goodies and store-cupboard essentials, with a small café serving up daily breakfast, lunch and afternoon treats. No visit to Broadway would be complete without a jaunt up to the famed Dormy House, an award-winning boutique hotel with fantastic foodie credentials, with afternoon tea in The Garden Room a must for those in search of an elegant way to while away the hours.

For afternoon tea with a more relaxed feel, look no further than The Tea Set – sister to its namesake tea room in Chipping Norton- located just off the high street.

Walking

The Cotswolds’ miles and miles of picturesque walking routes are on your doorstep here at Swallows Rest, with The Cotswold Way running directly through Broadway itself to connect you to the likes of nearby Chipping Campden, Snowshill and Winchcombe, dependant on how far you’re willing to travel on foot. We’d recommend the brisk walk from Broadway’s High Street to Broadway Tower, designed in 1799 for the sixth Earl and Countess of Coventry, where your hard up-hill efforts are rewarded by magnificent views said to stretch to up to 12 counties wide. For those keen to continue their Cotswold explorations on foot, you can follow the Cotswold Way towards Snowshill on a 7-mile round trip, where the beautiful 15th century Snowshill Manor is well-worth a visit at the half-way point; as is a hard-earned rest stop at the Snowshill Arms.

Broadway Tower

4½ miles – Start/finish: Crown and Trumpet Inn, Broadway (cotswoldholidays.co.uk)

Explorer map OL45: OS Grid Reference SP094374

A Cotswolds classic for a very good reason, the village of Broadway, was ’discovered’ by the Victorian artistic elite in the 1870s and has been adorning calendars and biscuit tins ever since. The walk centres on Broadway Tower Country Park to the south-east and its eponymous tower, a late 18th-century folly boasting views across 13 (some say 16) counties.

From the delightfully eccentric pub, head up Church Street to the war memorial and right along the High Street. You are now on The Cotswold Way (CW). Follow the CW Acorn signs up the 700ft climb to Broadway Tower which has a William Morris Room and refreshments. Loop back along Coneygree Lane turning right (north) at 11th Century St Eadburgha’s Church and back to the village.

Must-Sees

The north Cotswolds is crammed-full of attractions sure to keep visitors happy no matter what the weather, with Broadway itself full of must-sees within walking distance of Box Cottage. History-buffs will love The Broadway Museum and Art Gallery (5-minute drive), a community museum which tells the town’s history through art, as well as Broadway Tower (8-minute drive); a spectacular monument atop an ancient beacon site overlooking the town from its 65ft vantage point. The National Trust property Snowshill Manor is also just a 8-minute drive for those in search of a stately day out, whilst Batsford Arboretum (25-minute drive) offers a picturesque breath of fresh air amidst glorious woodland for those looking to stretch their legs. Slightly further afield, Cotswold Lavender (15-minute drive) is an absolute must during the warmer months with fields upon fields of vibrant purple lavender to explore, including a distillery where the lavender is harvested for essential oil each summer. Distillery fans will also love Cotswolds Distillery at Stourton (30-minute drive) where you can get hands-on with the intricacies of whisky and gin making; the perfect day-out for fans of a tipple or two. For younger guests, Broadway boasts its own Activity Park where hours of fun can be had playing in the great outdoors, with Cotswold Farm Park and Cotswold Wildlife Park just a 20-minute and 40-minute drive from Swallows Rest Cottage respectively.

Getting There

Swallows Rest Cottage offers walks from the doorstep but for those wishing to explore slightly further afield in the Cotswolds, bring a car. For those travelling by rail, Evesham (18-minute drive) are Moreton-in-Marsh (18-minute drive) are the nearest stations with good links to major cities including London Paddington, with regular buses connecting Broadway with each. Taxis are available from each station but we would recommend pre-booking if you’re arriving outside of traditional working-day hours.

PARKING

One car at the front of the property and space for two cars at the rear (preferable).
