Walks in the English Countryside / Winchombe to Broadway

After lunch, we continued our hike through peaceful meadows to our hotel in Broadway, often referred to as the “Jewel of the Cotswolds” because of its archetypal rural beauty, along a wide grass-fringed street lined with ancient honey-colored limestone buildings, many dating back to the 16th century. We lodged for the night in the comfortable Broadway Hotel, which was originally built as a rural retreat for Abbots of Pershore in the 15th century. I was shown to my own private suite, at the end of the complex, overlooking the manicured lawn, with my own patio (ask for #19 if you have the opportunity to stay here!).

After checking into my room, I walked around the town to investigate the various shops, architecture, signage, and people-watch.  As we found on most of our hiking so far, the English love their dogs and seem to take them everywhere.
