Stow on the Wold
Broadway, a Cotswolds village, is often referred to as the 'Jewel of the Cotswolds' and the 'Show Village of England' because of it's sheer beauty and magnificence. The 'broad way' leads from the foot of the western Cotswolds escarpment with a wide grass-fringed street lined with ancient honey coloured limestone buildings dating back to the 16th century and earlier (the oldest house is Abbots Grange built in 1320 as the summer retreat for the Abbots of Pershore).
Many well known characters have spent time in Broadway drawing inspiration from its beauty and location including Oscar Wilde, Claude Monet, Edwin Abbey, John Singer-Sargent, William Morris and Edward Elgar.
Broadway has it all from several art galleries, gift and clothes shops to three inns, half-dozen tea shops, two hotels and even a touch of Tuscany at Italian restaurant 'Prego'. Retail therapy combined with good food & drink and chilling-out makes Broadway a very popular place in the Cotswolds to stay and visit throughout the year.
Stow on the Wold, is another one of the most beautiful ancient Cotswold market towns, situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The buildings are of mellow, honey coloured stone and the surrounding countryside is breathtaking. The town is associated with the Arts and Crafts movement and offers a wide range of attractions for visitors, including medieval architecture, historic gardens and monuments, regular markets and unique shops. There are also numerous beautiful, quaint little villages waiting to be explored within a short drive.
Cultural events are held throughout the year, such as the Chipping Campden Music Festival, the Open Gardens weekend and the Robert Dover's Olimpick Games, described as “the first stirrings of Britain's Olympic beginnings”. Stratford on Avon and Blenheim Palace, the birthplaces of Shakespeare and Churchill, are cultural gems situated nearby, as are the dreaming spires of Oxford. Cheltenham and the famous racing festival lie 15 miles away.
