Everything you need is within walking distance including a wonderful selection of independent boutiques and eateries. It’s the perfect base for enjoying the delights of Broadway with multiple attractions within easy reach.
Box Cottage is a small but perfectly formed 200-year-old Cotswold cottage hidden away in a quiet spot behind Broadway’s bustling main street. Postcard-worthy exteriors give way to a homely and welcoming interior that has everything you need for a stay in one of the Cotswold's most popular destinations. Inside you’ll find charming interiors with exposed wooden beams, original windows, and stunning parquet floors. On the ground floor, there’s a cosy living room, dining room and compact and bijou kitchen that has everything you need. Upstairs are two well-appointed, spacious bedrooms and the cottage bathroom with a double shower and a wonderful, high ceiling.
Tucked behind Box Cottage is a charming courtyard garden, enveloped by traditional Cotswold stone walls and a beautiful wisteria-clad pergola, offering welcome shade on sunny days. It’s the perfect spot for dining on warm evenings after a busy day exploring the beautiful Cotswolds.
As you step through the traditional front door, you’ll find yourself in a light-filled hallway with whitewashed stone walls and parquet flooring. There are hooks for hanging outdoors coats and a handy box bench where you can sit to remove walking boots. There’s also a cloakroom with a WC hidden away beneath the stairs.
The charming dining room is beautiful in its simplicity. Pale walls and décor set off the warm wood of the parquet flooring and the circular dining table which seats four. Natural light flows into the room from the original window with views out to the courtyard.
The galley-style kitchen leads off the dining room and although small in size has everything you need for a self-catering stay with an electric oven and hob, fridge-freezer, and a dishwasher. The pale grey design adds to the feeling of light and space. There’s a tiny tea making nook squeezed in as well.
The cosy living room is furnished in the same pale, calming palette of colours with a comfy sofa, and two armchairs. The original stone fireplace is no longer in use but remains a focal point of the room. The traditional equine art on the walls is a subtle nod to Broadway’s history as an important coaching hub of the Cotswolds. Natural light flows in through the dual aspect windows, there’s also a door to the enclosed courtyard garden.
The master bedroom is light and bright with a wonderful dual aspect. The focal feature is the intricately carved mahogany antique French-style, king-size bed. This spacious room also features built-in wardrobes, dressing table and mahogany nightstands with reading lamps.
The second bedroom at Box Cottage is light and spacious with twin beds, making it perfect for children or friends sharing. It can however also be made up as a double on request. There’s plenty of storage with a built wardrobe and a dressing table. There’s also a throw-back to the Victorian era with a handbasin tucked behind the door. This room is also dual aspect so there is plenty of natural light.
The family shower room has a wonderful double shower, Victorian-style handbasin and a lovely high ceiling, adding to the feeling of light and space. Like the other rooms throughout the cottage, there’s a large window flooding the bathroom with natural light.
This lovely, hidden away cottage has an enclosed, courtyard garden and is the perfect spot for outdoor dining with a wrought-iron four-seater table and chairs and a wooden dining set, which sits beneath a wisteria-covered wooden pergola. Or just enjoy evening drinks or a tranquil morning coffee before the day's adventure begin.

Box Cottage was just perfection in a very magical part of the world. The garden provided a private outdoor escape. It’s literally steps away from all that Broadway has to offer while feeling like a secluded hideaway.
An absolutely charming cottage. The location was perfect with just a few short steps from the car and from the main high street. It was warm and clean. Everything we needed was provided for. Broadway has the most amazing deli, restaurants and bars all within walking distance of the cottage. The garden was fabulous to take your early morning coffee and evening drinks. The bathroom was clean and had everything you need (obviously not toiletries). The kitchen is small but compact and very useful and the living room is very comfortable. Overall a fabulous weekend and I genuinely cannot wait to return!
We spent a wonderful week at this cottage. The location cannot be beaten and the cottage itself is comfortable, very well-equipped and spacious. We had one issue (beyond anyone's control) but everyone involved was responsive and efficient in getting it sorted out. A great spot!
Cleanliness, facilities, location, warmth, welcome all absolutely perfect.
Box Cottage is a very pretty, well maintained cottage in the beautiful village of Broadway in the Cotswolds! The cottage is situated just off the main high street in a quiet pedestrianised lane. The cottage has a lovely courtyard garden with tables and chairs and a bbq for those lovely summer evenings! The inside is equipped with all the facilities needed for a pleasant stay.
Broadway itself has an array of lovely gift shops, pubs, restaurants and public footpaths for walking off those who extra calories whilst also enjoying the beautiful countryside!. It is also conveniently situated to explore the other highlights that the Cotswolds has to offer.
The village of Broadway is the Cotswolds personified. The main street is lined with pale Cotswold stone buildings which now house a wide selection of independent boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. Although Box Cottage is perfectly placed for exploring the delights of Broadway, it is also the ideal spot from which to explore the wider Cotswolds.
