Lemon Tree Cottage
The village of Broadway, ideally located in the heart of England, serves as a perfect base for walkers to explore some of the 102
miles of the Cotswold Way, with many other glorious walks in the area offering a profusion of bluebells, poppies or blossom trees depending on the season. The Vale of Evesham Blossom Trail, now in its 27th year and featured on the BBC’s Countryfile, offers walks and guided bus tours through Broadway, Pershore and Evesham from the end of March onwards.
It is also perfectly placed for visitors to stay whilst attending the Cheltenham Races, being easy driving distance whilst avoiding the hustle and bustle of the town during race weeks. During Gold Cup week in March, Broadway’s pubs and eateries are packed with horse trainers, owners and race-goers alike.
Lemon Tree Cottage is an ideal base to enjoy the races as well as the ‘après-race’ nightlife too! Broadway also hosts horse trials each year – check with tourist information for dates. Broadway Golf Club, at 850 feet above sea level, offers wide ranging views of the area and there is a Spa and tennis court at the Lygon Arms Hotel on the High Street.
Broadway is a historic coaching village boasting a beautiful village green and has a newly refurbished recreation area for young people. There are numerous cafes, eateries and pubs and many gift shops, art galleries and antique shops as well as the newly opened Gordon Russell furniture museum and the local hunt stables.
There are numerous local attractions for all the family within easy driving (and walking) distance of Lemon Tree Cottage including historic houses, follies and pre-historic sites, farm, animal and water parks, boating at Evesham Marina, culture and history in Shakespeare’s Stratford.
