Explore the villages of the Cotswolds

In its villages built of honey-coloured stone, the Cotswolds is awash with beautiful buildings to admire, fine places for afternoon tea and scenic countryside ambles.

Broadway

SIGHT 1

Broadway, with its antique shops, tearooms and galleries, has long inspired artistic types. About three miles south is Snowshill Manor, a mansion once home to the eccentric Charles Paget Wade. It holds an extraordinary collection, ranging from musical instruments to Japanese armour (nationaltrust.org.uk; afternoons Wed–Sun Apr–Oct, see website for more opening times; £10.20).

WALK 2

Take the time to wander down to the lovely 12th-century Church of St Eadburgha, a sign-posted one-mile walk south from town. Near here, a path leads east and uphill for 1½ miles to Broadway Tower – a crenellated, 18th-century Gothic folly on the crest of the escarpment. There are all-encompassing views from the top: allegedly, up to 16 counties on a clear day (broadwaytower.co.uk; 10am–5pm; £4.80).
