Days Out From Broadway

Round trips or single destinations

The Almonry, Evesham

As well as being a beautiful destination in its own right, the Cotswold village of Broadway in Worcestershire is a central place to stay to explore a large number of local towns, villages and attractions. Allow at least two hours each to explore properties such as historic houses and gardens – if the destination has both then allow for staying longer.

These day trips begin and end in Broadway:

Day 1: Chipping Campden, Ebrington, Hidcote Gardens

Morning: Head to Chipping Campden to admire the streetscape and market building. Duck into Court Barn to view examples and exhibits about the local artisans of the Arts & Crafts Movement, enjoy a coffee.

Lunch: A lovely choice is the Ebrington Arms, Ebrington, close to Hidcote Gardens and Kiftsgate Gardens. Hidcote has a cafe and tearoom.
