Halfway House is a stunning Grade II listed property, which is believed to have been part of a coaching inn dating back to the mid-18th century. The cottage enjoys a peaceful location, yet is just moments away from the centre of the historic market town of Broadway, with its wide range of art galleries, restaurants and pubs. The famed Cotswold Way walking path is also close by, as are many other scenic walks, and Broadway is well located for exploring all the lovely towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, as well as places such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle and the dreaming spires of Oxford.
This lovely Cotswold stone cottage has a wealth of character features, including exposed Cotswold stone walls, oak beams and two wood burning stoves. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, four TVs and a well presented kitchen.
Halfway House sleeps six people, in three bedrooms, with three ensuite bathrooms. There is a small garden at the front of the cottage and there are two allocated off-street parking spaces. Halfway House is ideal for a family with older children, or a group of friends seeking a relaxing break in one of the Cotswolds' loveliest towns.
Booking and payment:
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.
For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.
All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.
A security deposit of £150 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. The security deposit is payable prior to arrival at the property, via a bank transfer or a valid debit or credit card.
The maximum occupancy of the property is six guests at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than six guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
