Absolutely loved this place. Such a shame we had only booked for the one night. Room was beautiful, spotlessly clean and had everything you could need, even bath robes. Breakfast was delicious and the owners were super friendly. Two minutes walk from the village centre. We will definitely come again.

Beautiful house. Rooms delightfully furnished and well equipped. Excellent breakfast with a wide choice. Very friendly and helpful owners who welcomed us with tea and cakes. The house is situated in the heart of Broadway and is convenient for restaurants, shops an all amenities.

While walking the Cotswold Way our journey took us to Broadway. Our stay was delightful. After a long day of foot travel we were welcomed at the front door by Joan. She ushered us to our room that faced the back garden. After a long day it was a real treat! We had a wonderful meal at the Swan Restaurant,... More

Cowley House looks rather plain from the outside but the room we stayed in was absolutely amazing. The room was charming, clean, bright, cosy and full of character. It had a small carpark at the back which is also convenient. Location wise its a few minutes walk away from the high street and is the back trail to the tower... More

Very friendly hosts who made us welcome. Good location in the centre of Broadway with parking in the grounds for a few cars. Rooms with en suite, and breakfast very good. Small downstairs lounge in which we were offered drinks on arrival.

We had a very warm welcome at Cowley House with lovely tea and cake. Excellent breakfast and Di the housekeeper was charming and friendly. We did however find our twin beds incredibly firm and a quilted mattress cover would have been welcome. Our en suite shower fan was extremely noisy and the single table lamp between the beds was insufficient... More

We would like to thank this guest for the comments. In response we would like to say that all of our double and single mattresses in Cowley House are provided with quilted bed toppers. On investigation we found that the bed had been split into twins, and it seems our supply of single bed toppers has been depleted. Sadly we... More

The Cowley House is owned by a nice couple, Joan and Peter Reading. Their bed and breakfast is located in a peaceful village of Broadway. It is about 400 years old, but nicely modernized. At 6'2", my husband found the beam ceilings a real challenge, but that added to the charm. Breakfast was good with a nice range of options... More

The welcome from John & Peter Reading was delightful from the pot of tea and cake when we checked in to the well furnished and homely room with comfortable sitting area and range of facilities. Breakfast did not disappoint with locally sourced ingredients and the star turn for us of Peter's homemade bread. We also enjoyed the opportunity to chat... More

We booked this online as a stop over on our way to the Lake District. Honestly wish we couldn've stayed there an extra day. They were so friendly and accommodating. The room, although not huge, was lovely and typically English country style. The bed was so beautifully comfortable, the linen fresh and crisp, the towels fluffy and soft. And the... More
