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

We had a very nice three-night stay at Cowley House and in Broadway. We had a very nice room in the rear overlooking the garden and countryside. Very relaxing and quiet. Peter was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfast room personnel were terrific...very enjoyable and very good breakfasts. Broadway is a nice location for touring around the area. Wonderful sites...

By far the best thing about this B&B is the location (and parking) right in central Broadway. Within a two minute walk to restaurants, pubs and shopping. Also, the cook/housekeeeper, Diana, is very warm, funny and friendly... love her!!! I would suggeest asking for an en suite (we had to walk across the hall to the bathroom). And our TV... More

Thank you for your kind review. We do have an ideal location. We did check out the television, and it is working fine, we do though, as a safety feature, tun off appliances as at the main switch and this may have been the problem. All of our bedrooms are en-suite except Walton whch has its own private dedicated bathroom... More

A very comfortable bed & breakfast. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Very handy to all amenities. Access to rooms by stairs only. Could be difficult for disabled people. Breakfast very good and nicely served.

Must Stay list! Delightful and very comfortable, with charming and extremely gracious hosts. Wanting to do some local Cotswold hikes and sightseeing around the area, we chose Cowley House in Broadway for its proximity. Broadway is a beautiful Cotswold town. There are several great pubs, and excellent hotel restaurants literally a two minute walk away from this quiet but very... More

My friends and I stayed two nights in this comfortable bed and breakfast in an historic, old house. Great stay! My room was large and comfortable, with a nice bathroom.
