This holiday cottage, one of a row, is situated in an idyllic country setting in the quiet village of Laverton. Broadway is just a 2-minute drive with its restaurants, pubs and galleries, and is famous for its honey colour cottages for which it deserves the title the ‘Jewel of the Cotswolds'. Attractions include Adams Farm, Broadway Playpark, Broadway Tower, GWR Steam Train and Warwick Castle. Golf, walking, cycling, fishing and horse riding are available locally. Shop 2 miles, pub 1½ miles.

Things to Do

Eating

When it comes to eateries in Broadway you're truly spoilt for choice, with a wide selection of independent cafés, restaurants and pubs to enjoy. For those in search of a real treat, Russell's of Broadway is the ideal choice; a Michelin-guide favourite serving up sophisticated, modern British cuisine along Broadway's high street. The renowned Lygon Arms, located along the high street, is also a great choice for more formal evening meals, with the Lygon Bar & Grill offering a selection of locally-sourced dishes in a stunning Tudor dining room setting. For more laid-back all-day dining, Number 32 Broadway offers a fantastic menu spanning brunch- early supper, serving up a selection of light bites, pizzas and sharer-boards with a contemporary-cool feel. Russell's Fish and Chips is also a must-visit for those in search of a slap-up meal with a distinctly refined feel courtesy of the team behind Russell's of Broadway, as is Broadway Deli; a treasure-trove of local delicacies, fresh goodies and store-cupboard essentials, with a small café serving up daily breakfast, lunch and afternoon treats. No visit to Broadway would be complete without a jaunt up to the famed Dormy House, an award-winning boutique hotel with fantastic foodie credentials, with afternoon tea in The Garden Room a must for those in search of an elegant way to while away the hours. For afternoon tea with a more relaxed feel, look no further than The Tea Set – sister to its namesake tea room in Chipping Norton- located just off the high street.

Walking

The Cotswolds' miles and miles of picturesque walking routes are on your doorstep here at Swallows Rest Cottage, with The Cotswold Way running directly through Broadway itself to connect you to the likes of nearby Chipping Campden, Snowshill and Winchcombe, dependant on how far you're willing to travel on foot. We'd recommend the brisk walk from Broadway's High Street to Broadway Tower, designed in 1799 for the sixth Earl and Countess of Coventry, where your hard up-hill efforts are rewarded by magnificent views said to stretch to up to 12 counties wide. For those keen to continue their Cotswold explorations on foot, you can follow the Cotswold Way towards Snowshill on a 7-mile round trip, where the beautiful 15th century Snowshill Manor is well-worth a visit at the half-way point; as is a hard-earned rest stop at the Snowshill Arms.

Must-Sees

The North Cotswolds is crammed-full of attractions sure to keep visitors happy no matter what the weather, with Broadway itself full of must-sees. History-buffs will love The Broadway Museum and Art Gallery, a community museum which tells the town's history through art, as well as Broadway Tower; a spectacular monument atop an ancient beacon site overlooking the town from its 65ft vantage point. The National Trust property Snowshill Manor is also just a short drive for those in search of a stately day out, whilst Batsford Arboretum offers a picturesque breath of fresh air amidst glorious woodland for those looking to stretch their legs. Slightly further afield, Cotswold Lavender is an absolute must during the warmer months with fields upon fields of vibrant purple lavender to explore, including a distillery where the lavender is harvested for essential oil each summer. Distillery fans will also love Cotswolds Distillery at Stourton where you can get hands-on with the intricacies of whisky and gin making; the perfect day-out for fans of a tipple or two. For younger guests, Broadway boasts its own Activity Park where hours of fun can be had playing in the great outdoors, with Cotswold Farm Park and Cotswold Wildlife Park just a 20-minute and 40-minute drive from Swallows Rest Cottage respectively.

It did not live up to expectations.

  • 2 of 5

We were generally unhappy about the cleanliness of the cottage. The bathroom floors were very dirty, as were some of the kitchen surfaces and indeed some of the crockery. A pair of dirty underpants was found in one of the bedroom drawers, not to mention a lap dancing advertisement!! Although a welcome pack was advertised as being part of the package, it consisted of some milk and a box of dull biscuits. In our experience a welcome pack includes bread, butter, cake of some description, and often eggs and some fruit. Worthy of 2 stars because of the lovely and convenient location.

A lovely quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is of exceptional quality. The decor is very attractive, it is very well equipped and the condition of everything is excellent. The bathrooms are stunning. It was very clean and with pleasant fragrances throughout. There were only three of us and we were only there two nights but it is clearly suitable for bigger parties and longer stays. The back garden is a good size and with great views. A useful addition would be a movement sensitive light at the back so that when returning at night from the parking area you can see where to go. The village is quiet with no shops/pubs but Broadway is only a short drive away.

Cosy stay

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house with treasures and surprises! The house is well equipped, and owners are friendly. However, the location given seems to be wrong and we got into some trouble while looking for the house. Otherwise, really pleasant stay!

Great accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodation, spacious and very well equipped. Only 3 of us staying so we had loads of room inside and out. Very hot weather meant the top storey rooms could not be used as they were stifling, especially the lovely bedroom which has small windows that cannot be opened fully. However, there was plenty of room for us on the first floor and we really enjoyed our stay - it just wasn't long enough!

Great cottage, fab views from the top bedroom in particular.

  • 4 of 5

Ideal cottage for our friends and children. Nice garden for the children to play in. All very clean and well decorated. The top room in particular is beautiful. Not massive but perfect for what we were after and much better value than many other places we looked at.
