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.

More photographs of the interior rooms will be added after completion of redecoration!

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.
