About the property

Available for the first time in 2018, a fully modernised 3 bedroom Cottage

Russell Court Cottage is a beautifully modernised 18th century home, part of the original stables of historic Russell House (Grade 2 starred), which housed the Broadway Colony of artists and writers in the 1880s. Among them were Henry James, and John Singer Sargent, whose "Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose" was painted in the gardens, currently under restoration by the owners.

Broadway has been described as the most beautiful village in England, and the shops, restaurants, pubs, delicatessen, art galleries and antique shops are 5 minutes' walk from the property. Broadway is the perfect centre for exploring the Cotswolds. Nearby attractions include, Cheltenham Racecourse, Stratford upon Avon, both 20 minutes away, numerous historic houses and gardens, including Hidcote and Kiftsgate gardens, Snowshill Manor, Sezincote, Sudeley Castle, Stanway House, and the cathedral cities of Gloucester and Worcester. The long distance footpath, the Cotswold Way, passes through the village, with spectacular views from Broadway Tower. Broadway is home to the kennels of the North Cotswold Hunt, and horse riding, golf and hiking are all available in or near the village.

The cottage is ideally situated for the Longborough Festival Opera, only 20 minutes away (season June to July 2018), the Broadway Arts Festival (8-17 June 2018), the Chipping Campden Music Festival (12-26 May 2018), the music and literary festivals in Cheltenham, and the Three Choirs Festival (28 July - 4 August 2018) in Hereford.

Broadway itself boasts two museums, the Gordon Russell Design Museum , and the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery.

Russell Court Cottage has three double bedrooms, all en-suite with high quality Villeroy & Bosch fittings and Matki showers, and is set in its own private garden with fishpond and fountain with arbour, table and chairs for outside dining. It has its own driveway with electric gates, and parking for up to four cars. Access may also be arranged to the gardens of Russell House, with its Gothic follies, historic ice-house, and mature trees.

The ground floor has a fully-fitted dining kitchen with two eye-level ovens, induction hob, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine. Also on the ground floor is the reception room with open fire, television, and comfortable sofas and chairs with antique furniture and oriental rugs. One spacious double bedroom with four-poster bed and en-suite bath and shower room is situated on the ground floor with views of the gardens of Russell House.

On the first floor is a further spacious double bedroom with four-poster bed and en-suite shower room, decorated with William Morris wallpaper. On the second floor is a cosy attic bedroom with twin single beds and en-suite shower room, elm beams and views of the surrounding gardens and of the Cotswold Hills.

The cottage has full gas-fired central heating throughout, wifi, and quality furnishings and fittings, antiques and oriental rugs, and 100% cotton linens.

Due to a number of small steps inside the property, it is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with severe mobility difficulties.

About Andrew Dakin

I'm Andrew, originally from Cheshire, now retired, and I've been living in this area for the last 30 years. My partner and I bought Russell Court 5 years ago, and it has been our home since then. We recently bought Russell House next door and after a year's renovation project have moved there, making Russell Court now available as a holiday cottage.

Andrew Dakin purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Andrew Dakin chose Broadway

Well, Broadway is famous as one of the most beautiful village in England, but more than that it's a great place to live, or just to visit. Within 5 minute's walk from Russell Court is Broadway's High Street, with three pubs, six restaurants, wine bar, shops selling everything from basic groceries, men's and women's fashions, florist, a gunshop, not to mention a celebrated delicatessen, hairdressers, doctor and dentist. Russell Court is in the perfect location, and has its own central part to play in the history of Broadway.

What makes this cottage unique

Russell Court, and the adjoining Russell House, was the centre of the Broadway Colony in the late 19th century - a group of American and British artists and writers who were the first to discover the charms of Broadway and the Cotswolds - the leading members were John Singer Sargent, whose Carnation, Lily, Lily Rose, was painted in the gardens here, Frank Millet, Edwin Austin Abbey, Henry James and Lawrence Alma-Tadema. It was this historic connection which first attracted us to the property, as we have close connections to the Boston area where many of the artists came from. We renovated the house over the last five years, putting in all the modern amenities, so that Russell Court is both historic, but with all the modern creature comforts that make it such an ideal base from which to explore the area. There are so many things to see and do in and around Broadway that a week is hardly enough! That's why I love it so much here.

Fabulous Cottage

  • 5 of 5

By far the best holiday cottage we have had. 2 main bedrooms are sumptuous, the 3rd on the top floor was comfortable despite restricted headroom. Large, comfortable sitting room, spacious and well equipped kitchen and beautiful gardens.

The owners, who live next door, were welcoming and friendly through out our stay.

Plenty of places to eat out, particularly recommend The Swan for fine dining, Russell's for fish and chips and the Crown and Trumpet for 'Pub Grub'. Budgens in village sufficient for all our grocery needs.

Would definitely book again if visiting the Cotswolds.

Beautiful Property and Wonderful Hosts!!!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed at Andrew's home for three nights and we all had a great experience here! Andrew and Malcom greeted us and showed us their beautiful home. They provide us with all the information we needed about this spacious cottage itself and the local area. Being located in Broadway is a great central location in the Cotswolds for you to visit many of the gorgeous villages here. From here it was easy to go to Stratford-Upon-Avon, Stow-on the -Wold, Chipping Campden, and others.

All of the rooms are updated in this house are updated and beautifully appointed. The living room is spacious and so are the bedrooms. The one bedroom up on the top floor is a little bit smaller and has two twin beds. The bathrooms were immaculate.

The town of Broadway I had not heard of but it is very nice! There are many very nice places to eat in Broadway and we enjoyed all of our meals there. We really enjoyed the Indian restaurant nearby.

If you want an excellent place to stay for six people in a very nice, centrally located town in the Cotswolds, this is the place to stay! I highly recommend staying here!

Picture perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home has it all.

From a perfect location in the village of Broadway with all its many charming attractions to the beautiful garden which we constantly found ourselves eating and drinking in this house has it all.

Every possible consideration has been catered for with a comprehensive guide to the local attractions and hostelries supplied in the homes information booklet making planning our few days stay very easy. The house is beautifully presented with all bedrooms exceeding their description and pictures and each having their own modern en suite was a huge bonus for our party of five.

We loved the kitchen which was fully stocked with all necessary utensils and appliances, it also was enjoyable to leave the kitchen door open onto the beautiful garden every morning as we ate.The house was presented with all requirements for our 4 day stay including towels dishwasher powder and other little touches of local luxury in the bathroom shampoos etc. This home really did exceed all our expectations and gave us one of the best breaks we have had as a family. In summing up the trip the consensus was "the house was amazing and made the trip". We most definitely will be back..

Excellent venue for exploring the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Andrew, the owner, who could not have been more charming. The folder of instructions and recreation around the area is meticulous.

A welcome basket awaited us filled with exquisite offerings from the local deli, a very nice touch.

The cottage is beautifully appointed, elegant yet practical. Much thought has gone into detail to make guests comfortable, hairdryers in all the bedrooms, large bottle of Cotswold Lavender shower gel (loved that).

The garden is a gem.

We could not have asked for more. It is everything that it says in the listing and way beyond.

Thank you Andrew for a wonderful stay.
