Broadway

The Painted Lady of the Cotswolds’ is a term often used to describe this beautiful village. The honey-coloured stone captivates the visitor today, as it did in the C19, when William Morris and his pre-Raphaelite friends settled here. A slow walk up the High Street will unfold some large and impressive houses, former homes to Edward Elgar, JM Barrie (Peter Pan), Ralph Vaughan Williams, Sir Gerald Navarro MP and Laura Ashley. These great houses with bow windows, dormers and finely graduated stone roofs are usually hidden behind statuesque gates. There are a number of fine hotels, restaurants, tearooms, art galleries and a fine bookshop.
