Ms Jay Hunt purchased this House in 2000
Why Ms Jay Hunt chose Broadway
We bought the house as we fell in love with the quiet location and charm of it in 2000 and we love the peace and the fact that the garden is not overlooked at all. Every window in the house looks over unspoilt fields and country and yet we are only half a mile from Broadway village. All visitors comment on how tranquil and calming they find it.
What makes this House unique
The house provides a perfect location to explore this popular area. Daylesfords, Blenheim Palace, Bicester village, Bourton on the water, Highgrove House and Stratford upon Avon are all popular places our visitors like to visit while staying at The Old Orchard.

BEAUTIFUL AND INVITING COTSWOLD HOME - CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN!
Beautiful well kept Cotswold home in lovely private setting - backdrop is
meadows, hills and sheep. Absolutely gorgeous gardens, one has the sense
of being pampered from the moment of arrival, that you are in your own home
in the Cotswolds. Owners are very responsive, overall experience was wonderful.
Surpassed all expectations!
The cottage was really beautiful - set centrally in a picturesque garden with fruit trees and a little stream! The house was well proportioned, maintained and very comfortable - every need was catered for! The owner liaised with us before and during the stay which really helped and the gardener came during the stay to put the bins out without disturbing us at all!
Broadway as a village is perfectly situated for enjoying the Cotswolds with several national trust properties close by, plus the interesting Broadway Tower and nuclear observation bunker! However - the only downside is - the cottage is so perfect you may not feel like leaving!
We hope to return in the future - it really felt like home away from home - we're so pleased to have found it and sincerely thank the owners for sharing it! xxx
I stayed in this awesome cottage for a week in May before going to London for the Jubilee celebrations. The pictures really don't do it justice, it is just stunning providing the best of both worlds. The cottage is in a quiet spot overlooking rolling fields but also a short walk to the village of Broadway with great shops, restaurants and people. Inside the cottage it is decorated beautifully with a lot of old school charm but it also has great beds, a good kitchen and great bathrooms - all the modern amenities you need. We got lucky with the sun while I was there and lay around in the garden but if it rains I can imagine it would be great to curl up in front to the fire and watch some DVD's. The owners couldn't have been more helpful with all my questions before I arrived. We had great trips to Dalesford Spa and Bicester - an outlet shopping village where I went a bit crazy in Prada! I honestly felt like I was in a Richard Curtis film staying here and I didn't want to leave. I'll be back!

I stayed at this awesome cottage for a week during May this year. I came over for the Jubilee celebrations and wanted to experience a bit of British Countryside before hitting London. The pictures on this website really don't do the cottage justice, it is utterly stunning and gives you the best of both worlds. Not only is it in a very quite spot over looking rolling fields but the village of Broadway is just a few minutes walk away where there's great food and shopping, a beautiful church and lovely people. The cottage itself cleverly combines old school charm with modern amentities. Exquistely decorated it also had a good kitchen, comfy beds and great bathrooms. The owners couldn't have been more helpful with my constant questions before I arrived and they were always on hand if anything went wrong throughout my stay - it didn't by the way! We got lucky with the weather when I was there and got to lie in the garden and enjoy the sun but I can imagine that if the rain set in it would be great to cosy up in front of the fire and watch DVD's. The Cotswolds is a great spot to stay and we also enjoyed trips to the organic store and spa Dalesford and we did some serious shopping at Bicester, an outlet village with many stores including Prada, Jimmy Choo and Mulberry! I'll definitely be staying there again!
My family spent a wonderful Christmas at Old Orchard after the greatest snowfall in England for many years. We arrived, after much difficulty on snowy and icy roads, to a scene reminiscent of an old fashioned Christmas card. Stepping inside we were greeted by warmth and a ready laid open fire, a delightfully decorated Christmas tree, and many thoughtful preparations and touches around the cottage. The owners had provided every convenience for which we could wish.
The snowbound lane discouraged car travel, so we explored our surroundings on foot. Either direction from the cottage leads to interesting and picturesque walks. The town of Broadway, well furnished with shops for your every need, is approximately half a mile up the road, and there are ancient churches, quaint pubs and fascinating views wherever you look.
We intend to return and savour this beautiful environment in a different season, but will always treasure our memories of Christmas 2010.
Thank you Jay and Margot, owners, Liz, housekeeper, and Mike, groundsman.
my favourite place
i booked the old orchard for a week in august for me and my girlfriend to get away. True to form the weather was terrible and so we spent quite a lot of time in the house. We both fell in love with the house and because it has everything you could want in it we found it easy to ignore the rain and concentrate on cooking and chilling out. The local farm shops are really well stocked and we ate really well on local produce. We read, watched tons of films and slept better than we had in years as it really is
totally silent at night.
The owners called up to make sure we were ok and really seemed to care that we had a good time which was nice. If you want a romantic getaway and a place that feels like a quiet cocoon then this is the house to book. Its rare to find something that is better than you anticipated x 100 when you turn up but this house really is something special.
