Broadway, Worcestershire, UK, is a stunning village in the Cotswolds. It is a village crammed with typical cottages and houses constructed with the famous creamy Cotswold Stone. It has to be seen to be appreciated.
We saw historical paintings of the village from 150 years ago in a local art gallery and it looks like not a lot has changed, apart of course from the arrival of Budgens supermarket which is tastefully camoflaged and hidden from view. You'd hardly know it was there.
My travelling partner said the village was twee and yes it is, but if this is what Twee is, then I like Twee (A lot!) In my youth I remember jigsaws depicting villages such as Broadway and remember thinking that places like this could not exist. Not true, they do exist and Broadway is only one of many in the Cotswolds.
There's not a lot to do in Broadway village itself. Yes, it has shops, restaurants, a hotel and a number of excellent looking B&B's and pubs. We ate and drank in the Horse and Hound pub and it was really very good and worth a visit. Nice friendly staff her too. However, just a pleasant walk around the village followed by a pint, a meal or just a cream tea !!
I did not spy even the tiniest piece of litter in this lovely place.
If you are planning to drive or walk the Cotswolds, I highly recommend that you book at least one night in this very special place.
