Broadway often referred to as the jewel of the Cotswolds.
When I was planning my overseas trip, the Cotswolds were a major destination for me. I had originally planned on staying a few days in Broadway but for one reason or another I chose Stratford instead. So I was very eager to get to this little village and it was just as I had imagined it.
My only way to see the Cotswolds was by public bus from Stratford and that was an adventure in itself. I managed to see only four villages but I had a great day.
Broadway lies centrally between Oxford and Worcester, 90 miles northwest of London and 40 miles south of Birmingham.
From London take the M40 motorway westwards out of London for 50 miles, turn off for Oxford. A picturesque and direct route is to take the A34 then the A44 to Evesham. You will pass through the villages of Woodstock, Chipping Norton and Moreton-in-Marsh. Broadway now lies only 10 miles away.
There were many small shops and pubs. After my long trek from home it was a bit of a disapointment not to have more time here. But what I saw was lovely. The village was quiet and cosy.
I spent some time walking along the Cotswolds Way but it started to rain and I had to come back.
- Pros:A quiet traditional village. A starting point of the Cotswold Way.
- Cons:Probably not the hub of the Cotswolds but a must see.
- In a nutshell:I'd love to stay here for a day or two!
The Deli also had a fruit and vegie stand. The usual...bananas, strawberries, tomatoes, eggs.... Mushrooms...50 pence... more travel advice
I didn't stay here but thought it was worth a mention. It sort of dominated High Street and was a pleasant looking... more travel advice
