The pretty village of Broadway is just 6 miles away and has a wide choice of places to eat out including cafes, coffee shops, a highly-rated fish and chip shop, pubs, and some excellent restaurants.
There are many footpaths around Bretforton, including one right from the cottage. Head down Bridge Street. At the bridge turn left onto Back Lane. Before the bend by the farm there is a public footpath sign in front of you. Go through the gate following the path round to the road where you can either go straight ahead or turn right. Turn right and follow the road towards the bend, take the track in front of you and continue over the cattle grid. Just before you reach Allens Barn there is footpath sign on your right, follow this path back to the village.
