Oak Cottage is a beautiful Cotswold stone property, which dates back to 1820 and benefits from a very peaceful setting on the side of a hill, with spectacular views of the Cotswolds countryside. The cottage is at the end of a mile long gravel track and is a short walk from the iconic Broadway Tower, which itself is approximately a mile's walk away from the picturesque Cotswolds town of Broadway, home to the famous Lygon Arms, as well as many other restaurants, pubs, shops and art galleries. Despite its peaceful location, Oak Cottage is well placed for exploring the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath.

The cottage has recently been lovingly refurbished by its owner, retaining character features such as oak beams, ledge and brace doors, and a double sided wood burning stove. Complementing the character of the cottage are modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a SMART TV with Netflix and a well presented kitchen.

Oak Cottage sleeps a maximum of four people, in two bedrooms, with two bathrooms. The cottage has a lovely private garden at the rear of the property and the shared gardens at the front have spectacular countryside views. There is also private off-street parking for three cars. Oak Cottage is perfect for families or couples seeking a peaceful holiday in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds' countryside.

Really lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Superb cottage with excellent facilities. It was extremely welcoming to arrive on a wet and cold day to the central heating on. Views were magnificent even if it was a tortuous drive up the lane to get there. Wonderful welcome package of food and beverages. On a slight downside we felt referring to the 'ensuite' bathroom as a 'second bathroom' was a little misleading as it only has a toilet and handbasin, no shower which we would have preferred. Also a music system would have been good. But all in all a lovely place and would highly recommend.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Had a peaceful break in calm and beautiful surroundings... the area is stunning. The cottage had everything and more. The mile long private drive, although a little bumpy, was worth the drive to see the spring lambs and blossom. Would highly recommend.

MORE THAN OUTSTANDING

  • 5 of 5

HIS COTTAGE IS A FINE STAY AND DELIVERS MORE THAN ADVERTISED. IT IS A QUIET PLACE TO STAY OUTSIDE OF MANY OF THE CROWDED VILLAGES. THE FURNISHINGS ARE FIRST CLASS AND WITH MORE OF THE CONVENIENCES OF HOME. THE PROPERTY IS APPROXIMATELY 1/2 MILE OFF OF THE MAIN ROAD PAST AND THRU A FARM WITH CATTLE, MANY SHEEP AND PHEASANTS. THE RIDE AND LOCATION IS WELL WORTH THE VISIT. I WOULD CONSIDER RETURNING.

Other Activities:

Broadway is a beautiful village in the North Cotswolds, steeped in history and surrounded by stunning countryside. The village gets its name from the wide street, or broad way, that runs through the centre which was once the main road from Worcester to London.

This attractive High Street is bordered with chestnut trees and honey coloured stone cottages dating from the 16th century and is one of the most picturesque villages of the Cotswolds. The broad way is thought to be especially wide because at one time there used to be streams running each side of the main drive. These streams were eventually hidden in underground pipes where they would emerge at 'dipping' points, but sadly they are now almost completely invisible.

The village has artistic links with famous dwellers including J.M. Barrie, Mary Anderson and William Morris, who were drawn to the tranquillity of Broadway. It was here that Morris and John Ruskin pioneered the idea of the Arts and Crafts Movement which made its home in the area and went on to be an international movement.

One of the iconic features of the village is Broadway Tower which was built in the late 18th century by the Earl of Coventry. It is said that the tower was erected so that the Countess could see if her Cotswold estate was visible from Croome Court in Worcestershire, which it was. The folly stands some 1,024 feet above sea level, making it the second highest point in the Cotswolds after Cleeve Hill. In fact, on a clear day, visitors are able to see 14 counties from the top! William Morris was so taken by the tower that he went on to establish the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in 1877.

Car: Oak Cottage is easily accessed by car, being located approximately one mile away from the A44, one of the main roads through the North Cotswolds. Please note that the last mile of the drive is along a narrow, gravelled farm lane, which may not be ideal for low chassis cars.

Train: The nearest railway station to Oak Cottage is Honeybourne (approximately seven miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately two hours.

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 40 miles, approximately 60 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 80 miles, approximately 110 minute drive.
