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...

Children not allowed

Lovely Xmas break
We both loved staying here,the cottage was so warm & cosy.
The open log fire place was a delight & the bed was so comfortable,we slept well in the very peaceful village & we had everything we needed for our stay.
There is a lovely shop that does breakfast also a church, a pub,such a lovely place to walk around & many Cotswold places to visit by car.
The cottage was just as we expected. Warm, cosy, quirky and quiet. A beautiful period property in very good fertile. The only snag being no wifi.
The neighbourhood was lovely and the residents equally so....friendly and helpful. The New Inn pub just down the road were very accommodating, down to earth and friendly......and they had a pool table & dart board!
All in all a lovely experience. Looking forward to the next visit.

Cosy long weekend
We had a lovely long weekend at the cottage and loved how cosy and peaceful it was. The location was beautiful and the fire was a big plus! It was very clean and everything you could have needed was provided. The pub was less than a minute's walk from the front door, which was great too. We will be back.
The cottage is approximately 40 miles from Birmingham airport.
The use of a car would be the most convenient way to explore the area, but Willersey has a good bus service for access to Evesham, Broadway, Cheltenham and Stratford-on-Avon.
www.escapetothecotswolds.org.uk is a good starting point for bus timetables.
Broadway 1.5 miles
Cheltenham Race Course 16 miles
Stratford-on-Avon 13 miles
Evesham 6 miles
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.
