Cottage in Willersey, Nr. Broadway, The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, England - Quiet Village Location, 1 Minute's Walk From Two Pubs And Village Shop; Easy Access To Broadway
About Kerry Moreton
I bought the cottage in September 2012 as part of a lifelong interest in England’s history and architectural heritage. I have been involved in promoting the Vale of Evesham’s history in other ways previously and the cottage gives me a new opportunity to share the heritage of the area in another, more intimate, way. I did a little work to the cottage to make it cosy but think it important to retain as much of the old fabric as possible, so that the cottage is still allowed to tell its story. This is the only cottage I let, so it isn’t part of a large concern. I live in the next village, (although I now work in Birmingham), and have a strong connection to the locality. My aim is to provide a comfortable and inspiring place from which to explore the Vale and the North Cotswolds.

Why Kerry Moreton chose Willersey
I bought a property in Willersey because I believe in being hands-on with the property and being part of the local economy. I live less than two miles away and so could walk there if necessary. Willersey is a lovely village too without being over-commercialised, although that sort of thing isn't too far away.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is small and warm, and quirky. It is convenient for walkers being close to numerous footpaths which lead onto the North Cotswold Hills. There are two pubs in the village which serve food which you have to walk to, the furthest one would take you all of 90 seconds to reach. If you want to go further afield for something to eat and don't mind a couple of miles there and back, Broadway is just on the doorstep. It's quiet but not so remote you think the world has ended. Above all it's romantic. The perfect place for two lovers and their dog...

Lovely cosy cottage
We very much enjoyed our stay at this cosy cottage, with it's perfect ambience and lovely open fire, it made the perfect place for us to stay during our brief time in the Cotswolds. It's perfect location meant we could walk everywhere we wanted to and take in the lovely scenery as well as the many eating and drinking establishments near by (The Bell was very near by as it was just on the corner of the road). Very friendly people wherever we went and we certainly hope to be able to go back and stay again soon.
The cottage is approximately 40 miles from Birmingham airport.

The surrounding area provides many opportunities for all types of interests. Historical sites nearby include Broadway Tower, Hailes Abbey, Sudeley Castle, Evesham's Almonry Museum and historic battlefield, the Shakespeare houses of Stratford-on-Avon. Hidcote Manor Garden is also very close. Local Cotswold villages, both small and large, provide a wealth of vernacular and ecclesiastical architecture. Willersey has its own village shop but larger supermarkets are close-by in Broadway and Evesham. Cheltenham and Stratford are larger towns with extensive retail opportunities. The cottage is an ideal location for those going to Cheltenham races, Broadway Golf Club, walking on the Cotswold way or exploring the many other footpaths.
Notable restaurants are very near and include Russell's and the Lygon Arms, both in Broadway, Wesley House in Winchcombe and Buckland Manor.
