The small, walled garden is ideal for children and dogs to play safely, or to admire Broadway’s classic Cotswold architecture beyond the gates.
The historic layout with stairs means that people in need of movement do not have access to the house.

Inner Tip: Cottage Manager, Fiona Toy
“There are lots of things to see nearby. One of my favorite places that hasn’t always received much attention is the Rousham House and Gardens. A beautifully landscaped building designed by William Kent.”
We had everything a little child needed, such as high chairs and stairway gates, but there were also many things that made adults feel special, such as White Company toiletries and the most comfortable beds. Fiona was keen to point out that all the birds depicted on the master bedroom wallpaper are species that can be found nearby.
