“This is the Cotswolds”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

Fantastic stay with my husband and another couple. We all stayed in the garden rooms which seemed to have been recently decorated. Lovely and cosy, the owners make you feel at home without being over bearing. Breakfast was delicious and volumous. There are lots of lovely personal touches such as torches in the rooms should you fancy a night time stroll and sherry and nibbles as a nice welcome. We will visit again.

Well, what a stay - perfect. The welcome given was just the best. We were earlier than anticipated but that wasn't a problem at all. The room we had (8) was lovely, well furnished with the little extras and was cosy and warm. Pam and David were on hand to give advice on the area and where to eat and drink. Breakfast was one of the best we've had too, everything laid on and the home made smoothie was to die for. Don't even bother looking for anything better.

Room Tip: Room 8 is big, lovely and quiet.

We visited the Olive Branch just prior to the holidays for one night midweek as we toured the Cotswolds. We wished we could have stayed for longer. David and Pam are lovely and gracious hosts, we felt immensely comfortable from the moment we walked into the warm and welcoming guest home. The rooms were clean and tidy, tastefully and simply furnished. The town of Broadway was very pretty, and the Olive Branch an easy walk from several fantastic dining options. Breakfast the next morning was delicious, cooked by the hosts and served with good cheer. Truly we were sorry to leave. I look forward to visiting again.

Visited Broadway on our trip from South Africa last year. Only spent one evening in this beautiful Guest House, wish we had more time to explore Broadway.

We stayed in one of the upstairs rooms, tasteful cottage style decor, overlooking a traditional "Engish Country Garden".

Pam and David are fantastic hosts....and great cooks! Best breakfast we had on our trip!
We were spolit for choice...homemade breads and Pam makes a delish breakfast smoothie. While hubby enjoyed the Full English Breakfast I thoroughly enjoyed my Salmon and Scrambled Eggs.

Hope to visit this charming town in the Cotswolds again!

Pam and David are wonderful hosts. Their welcome seemed so genuine, and my husband and I felt immediately at ease and relaxed in their lovely home.
David's recommendations for restaurants and places of interest was invaluable. We only stayed one night, but we are already planning when we can go back again!
Our room was lovely; with mini bar fridge, a wide selection of quality drinks and nibbles as well as complimentary mineral water, lovely gowns and thick, thirsty, luxurious towels. The linen and bedding was of the highest quality too - we enjoyed one of the best night's sleep we can remember in such a long time! Better than at home!
Thank you Pam and David. We feel we have made new friends and your business and home are a credit to you.

This being our 4th stay at the Olive Branch over the past 10 years, there are few superlatives left to add from a long list of ones that have come before....warm, friendly, meticulous, scrumptious, caring, you can get the picture. From the moment you arrive Pam and David make you feel like you have come to visit them in their home..not simply an overnight stay. Pam and David have watched our son, Connor, grow up from his first visit at age 6 to our recent visit at age 16. This is Connor's FAVORITE place to stay chosen from a long list of locations in France, Italy, Greece as well as numerous locales in the U.S. A lot of how he feels comes from the amazing Full English Breakfast that Pam and David prepare every morning. It starts with Pam's array of "starters" which include, but not limited to, several flavors of fresh baked breads (ginger, pumpkin, poppy seed and lemon)...tropical fruit smoothies, fresh orange juice, assorted cereals, grapefruit segments and a wonderful fruit compote. If that wasn't enough you then go on to the cooked menu for this "feast'. Your choice include farm fresh eggs (the way you like them), English bacon, grilled tomatoes, cottage potatoes, country sausage and the crowning entry...David's famous sauteed herb mushrooms (he goes directly to the mushroom growers and has them hand-picked that morning...still warm from their growing beds. A true English treat that leaves little room for lunch but you can always have afternoon tea...a great tradition.
Prior to coming down to breakfast you are treated to a wonderful night's sleep in a beautifully appointed room with heavenly linens and a duvet that I wanted to take home. Pam has seen to every little detail to help make your stay a memorable one. There are snacks and cookies that are supplied every day along with an assortment of coffees and teas as well as Horlick's Hot Chocolate. The mini frig has lots of drinks to enjoy on those lazy afternoons when you feel like a nap. My favorite is the bathroom as it also has Pam's detail touch with English bath products, a great shower and, my favorite, gigantic bath sheets that are beautifully folded over a heated towel bar...we need to start a trend in the U.S....what a treat to have a warm towel on those chilly winter mornings.
And then there is ZULU.....the most amazing Black Lab you have ever witnessed. We always bring ZULU a gift when we come and he knew immediately that we have something for him when he heard the tissue paper rustling, he methodically ripped the package open to reveal a bright yellow football and baseball (both squeaky) and proceeded to pick them both up at once....this is a very large Lab but so sweet.
I could continue for another 3 pages as it is very difficult to explain in a short paragraph how wonderful these host are and what a great place they have worked hard to share with people from all over the world. Once you stay with David and Pam you are not simply a guest but rather a friend who will undoubtedly come back as we have and will continue to do.
Pam and David, thank you both for so many memorable visits and especially this last one where we were able to celebrate New Year's Eve with you before dinner and then on to a Black Tie 5 Star meal at The Broadway Hotel. We love you both and know that we will continue to share each others lives in the years to come. See you in Los Angeles!!!

Fondly,

Karen, Michael and Connor

Thanks in part to Tripadvisor my wife and I found the Olive Branch Guest House and couldn't have been happier! Pam and David were the best! The inn is so pleasant and comfortable and the village is perfect for a peaceful few days in the countryside. The restaurants we just walked to were tremendous, Russell's had the best scottish beef we've ever had. We were able to get some Christmas gifts and other presents for people back home. Driving around the cotswolds was amazing, seeing the different styles of houses and churches. We can't say enough about the Olive Branch and hope to be able to visit again sometime.
