Destination guide

Step into Miss Marple country

Cup of tea, vicar? With its antique shops, tearooms, and quaint little Cotswold stone cottages along a wide, tree-lined main street, it doesn't come much more English than a Broadway vacation rental. From hikers lacing up their boots for a day in the hills, to horsey types getting suited and booted for a day at Cheltenham Races, Broadway is a fantastic base for exploring one of the country's most picturesque areas. And after a long day exploring the hills, the museums, the stately homes, or the racetrack, there's nowhere better to settle in with a pint than one of Broadway's wonderful olde-worlde pubs.

Things to do

More attractions than a village has any right to have

When you're done haemorrhaging money at the races, check out the village itself. Museums include the Gordon Russell Design Museum (dedicated to a famous furniture-maker), and the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery (which boasts some heavy-hitting collections thanks to its partnership with Oxford's Ashmolean Museum). If little people are getting fidgety, you could do worse than a pit-stop at the Broadway Activity Park in the heart of the village. For an eagle-eye view of the whole shebang, head to the curious pinnacle of Broadway Tower, then top it all off with a ride on the nearby Gloucester Warwickshire heritage railway.

Activities

Top hats and fascinators at the ready for a day at the nags

A Broadway vacation rental is a lot of things to a lot of different people. Gore-Tex-clad hikers come for a gentle ramble in the Cotswold Hills. Cultured sorts are drawn to the area's museums and monuments, and to its rich artistic heritage. And then there's the racing set. Some of the most famous horse racing in the country, including the legendary Cheltenham Festival in March, takes place at nearby Cheltenham Racecourse, and those in the know like to base themselves out of Broadway. Dress to impress, and keep half an eye on the Royal Box. Just in case.

Weather

There's a reason Brits love to talk about the weather

British weather is famously temperamental, but the climate during your Broadway vacation rental is liable to be pretty mild by UK standards. It'll get a bit chilly in winter, but you're unlikely to get much snow even in the depths of January. Summer temperatures, meanwhile, are high without being sweltering. In common with the rest of Great Britain, your main preoccupation is going to be a bit of rain. Rarely particularly heavy, it can make an appearance at any time of year and can stick around for days if it's in the mood. Pack a nice Union Jack umbrella.

Natural features

Welcome to the Shire, Bilbo

Broadway is nestled in the Cotswolds, arguably one of the cutesiest, hobbitsiest, most quintessentially English bits of the UK. The area takes its name from the gently rolling Cotswold hills, and is known for its chocolate-box villages built from golden-coloured local stone, its rich limestone grassland habitats, and its lovely old beech woodlands. Expect rare butterflies, gorgeous wildflowers, and plenty of sleek racehorses enjoying some downtime from the steeplechases. The other thing you might see a lot of is Londoners, since the area's excellent train connections make it a popular weekend getaway.
