Location

Millham Cottages is situated in peaceful Broadwell, a quaint village comprising quintessential Cotswold stone cottages, the medieval church of St Paul and a popular country pub, The Fox Inn. The pub prides itself on its locally sourced ingredients and sits across from the village green, the location of the annual fete and children’s play area. Set within the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are plenty of walks and cycle routes to explore from the village including footpaths to nearby Longborough and Stow-on-the-Wold, the latter being one of the best known market towns of the Cotswolds and home to a number of pubs, restaurants and tempting tearooms.

Broadwell is an ideal base for visiting the many lovely towns and villages of the North Cotswolds such as Chipping Campden, Moreton-in-Marsh, The Slaughters, Bourton-on-the-Water and Broadway. There are also many tourist attractions including Birdland Park and Gardens, Batsford Arboretum, The Cotswold Distillery and a number of National Trust properties such as Snowshill Manor and Garden, Hidcote Gardens and Chastleton House. Further afield destinations such as Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle are within easy reach for day trips.
