Fantastic Cotswold Views
After our beautiful trip to Cotswold Lavender we headed to Broadway Tower on the way home.
There’s a car park which is pay and display (£3 for 4 hours). The machine only takes coins but you can pay with card at the Shepherd’s Hut. People were also parking on the roadside but if you do then please park sensibly and responsibly.
Yesterday when we visited the tower wasn’t open. I’m not sure of their plans to open it up again. We wouldn’t have gone up even if it was open as the views are absolutely incredible anyway. You can honestly see for miles in every direction.
We’ve been a few times and every time the children love running up and down the hill and rolling down. They call it a castle instead of a tower. Think they’ve watched too much Disney. There are also red deer to spot too.
The boys were desperate to do the National Trail walk that goes through by the tower but after some googling we found that it’s a 4 mile circular walk that takes around 2.5/3 hours. I’ve added the map in case anyone else fancies it. It takes you into Broadway itself which is beautiful and picturesque.
At the Lavender Fields we promised the children a piece of cake and a hot chocolate so we headed to the Shepherd’s Hut which is down the hill by the car park. There was cake and a couple of savouries on offer and all sorts of hot drinks and ice cream. There were portaloos open just by the car park - simple but clean. Just take your hand gel.
The walk up to the tower isn’t pushchair or wheelchair friendly as it’s pretty steep.
Definitely tie in a visit with the lavender fields if you can.
We popped back a few days later to do the circular route that we didn’t do when we visited previously. This walk isn’t pushchair or wheelchair friendly as the walk up to the tower is very cobbled. The walk took about 20 minutes and passed the deer on the way.
