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.

The Cotswolds village of Broadway in the English county of Worcestershire is often referred to as the "Jewel of the Cotswolds" and the "Show Village of England" because of its sheer beauty and magnificence. The "broad way" is a majestic, wide grass-fringed street, lined with red chestnut trees and ancient honey coloured limestone buildings.

The village is nestled at the foot of Fish Hill and is overlooked by the 65ft high Broadway Tower, which stands atop the hill. A much loved retreat for the Arts and Crafts Movement founder William Morris, this marvellous folly was built by the sixth Earl of Coventry's family in the late 18th century and on a clear day you can see no fewer than 14 counties from the top of it. As part of an extensive country estate (which also houses an animal park), it lies close to an Anglo-Saxon cemetery, where eight graves complete with knives, spears, beads and brooches were excavated in 1954.

A legacy of the Broadway Artists' Colony is that the village has several of the country's best art galleries. There are also a number of restaurants, pubs and tea shops, as well as a range of gift and clothes shops. Relaxation, retail therapy and good food and drink make Broadway a very popular place to stay and visit throughout the year.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

The Vale of Evesham

The Vale of Evesham, an area famed for its orchards and horticultural produce, has for many centuries supported a number of communities that have thrived on its fertile soil. Drained by the River Avon and with the town of Evesham as its centre, the Vale includes land in south Worcestershire, south Warwickshire and north Gloucestershire.

The Vale of Evesham is a traditional agricultural and horticultural area, including fruit farms, livestock farming and market gardening. The sheltered climate beneath the escarpment of the Cotswolds, the light alluvial soils and the ready availability of river water for irrigation in dry weather has led to a great deal of vegetable production. There are numerous orchards in the area, survivors of a time when the entire Vale was covered with blossom in the spring. Although orchards have declined somewhat in recent decades, they still make a sufficient show of blossom in spring that they are a tourist attraction.

The Vale is served by the 150-year-old Cotswold railway line, originally known as the Oxford, Worcester and Wolverhampton Railway, although this was known at the time of construction as the "Old Worse and Worse", due to regular derailments and construction problems, including a riot at Mickleton on the edge of the Vale. The stations within the Vale are at Honeybourne and Evesham and these are served by trains from Hereford, Worcester and London.
