The Broadway Hotel, Broadway, Cotswolds
This immensely comfortable, contemporary-chic hotel sits at the end of the great sweep of Broadway's famously pretty high street. With plenty of historic appeal, The Broadway Hotel is an intriguing amalgam of honey-stone and half-timbered buildings and was variously a blacksmith's and a bakery before becoming a hotel in the 1930s. The front terrace overlooks the village green and is a hub of local life in the spring and summer. There's a back terrace, too, tucked away in a semi-secret garden that is open only to resident guests - the hotel maintains much peace and tranquillity despite the crowds that descend on the village. It offers a terrific, tall bar with an impressively creative team of cocktail makers, a bright restaurant serving modern British dishes, a quiet sitting room and 19 stylish bedrooms.
Nearby, the Gordon Russell Museum on eponymous Russell Square celebrates the work of one of the 20th century's most significant designers, whose company operated in Broadway for more than 60 years.
Broadway is a quaint village, replete with Cotswold stone buildings and boutique shops. Hidcote Manor is a 15-minute drive away.
By car: around 2 hours 30 minutes from London, and over 1 hour from Oxford and Bristol. Free parking available.
By train: London Paddington to Moreton-in-Marsh (via Oxford) takes 1 hour 30 minutes. The hotel is a 20-minute drive from the station. thetrainline.com

Food & Drink
Amazing cocktails include a Fig Margarita - a delicious and unlikely-sounding combination of tequila, mezcal, Cointreau, lime, fig jam and prosecco. The stand-out dish was the roast lamb pavé and lamb shoulder shepherd's pie with heritage carrots and stout jus.
