The Little Workshop: Where we are…

Broadway, Worcestershire

The Little Workshop is based in the heart of rural England, surrounded by the most beautiful countryside. We are literally a stone’s throw away of many historical, leisure and natural places of interest and ideally situated for you to make a mini break out of your day with us to make the most of the area. For a taste of where we are check out the Visit Broadway site which has a fab visual gallery of 50 reasons to visit Broadway!

Inspiration on where to stay:-

We are close to many historical, leisure and natural places of interest – we are ideally situated for you to make a mini break out of your day with us.  There is an array of accommodation depending on the kind of stay you are after. Within minutes walking distance of our Workshop we have many great hotels and B&Bs in the village of Broadway.

Some of the places that we would recommend within Broadway would be The Olive Branch B&B which is opposite the workshop,  The Broadway Hotel, Russell’s Restaurant with Rooms, and The Lygon Arms which has a Spa if you would like to make it a really relaxing stay. If you are looking for a totally indulgent treat then look at The Dormy House Hotel  and Foxhill Manor which share the new award winning spa – just a 5 minute drive up the hill, along with their neighbouring more budget conscious sister hotel called The Fish!  A little further, but still only a 15 minutes drive, is the Kings Hotel in Chipping Campden. There are also lots of beautiful holiday cottages to rent, have a look at Honey Pot Cottages or B&Bs in the area, which can be found on the Broadway Cotswolds tourist information website.  If you are feeling more adventurous there is a new yurt glamping site  on a small holding just on the edge of Chipping Campden which has two yurts with real bathrooms!

Nearby, the home of Shakespeare – Stratford-upon-Avon, is within 20 minutes drive, as are the picture perfect villages of Chipping Campden, Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water….
