There’s no getting away from it, Broadway in the Cotswolds is chocolate box pretty even on rainy days. Although we were soaked in a downpour, it didn’t detract from the beauty of the setting.
Even the shops are pretty!
This is the local deli.
We stayed at the seventeenth century Crown & Trumpet where there is good pub grub and Black Rat cider on tap.
We paid £70 a night to stay here and breakfast was £10 each extra. We’ve stayed here twice before and all the rooms are individually decorated. This is our room – being so short I almost needed a leg up to climb into bed.
If you’re looking to stay in a proper English pub, then I recommend this one as it’s full of character. This is not a dressy destination, so leave the frocks at home and put your walking shoes on to make the best of your visit. Also, if you stay here, you have to take into account the age of the building, everything is higgledy piggledy and it hasn’t been extensively modernised (which I take as a good thing).
If you stay in the Cotswolds, let me know your recommendations.
