Sporting Activities to Enjoy in Broadway whilst Staying in our Cotswold Holiday Cottages

Many of our guests come to Broadway to enjoy walks along the miles of footpaths in the area but others enjoy either spectating or participating in other sporting activities during their stay.

The village has a very fine bowling green at the end of Kennel Lane and a flourishing cricket club on the Snowshill Road near St Eadburgha’s Church, where spectators are welcome to watch some entertaining cricket and enjoy a drink whilst taking in one of the most beautiful places to play cricket in the UK.

Broadway Golf Club has a links style 18 hole course uniquely located 850ft above sea level on top of the Cotswold escarpment. Located at Willersey Hill above the village, the course has exceptional views over the Vale of Evesham and provides a challenge for golfers of all abilities and welcomes non-members.

Teams representing Broadway United Football Club play in the Cheltenham League and Ambassador Evesham Football League. The clubhouse on the Milestone Ground is the only venue in the village that offers Sky Sports, showing most live sporting events. The club also has a darts team and runs various social events throughout the year to which all are welcome.

One of the best ways to enjoy the beautiful Cotswolds hills and wolds is on horseback. There are many riding centres in the area which cater for both the experienced rider and beginner. Broadway is home to the North Cotswold Hunt with kennels in the centre of the village along Kennel Lane. The Hunt organises a Point-to-Point, usually held on Easter Monday, at the nearby village of Paxford. The meet provides an excellent day’s entertainment for the whole family with good views of the racecourse, betting facilities, picnic spaces, trade stands, bars, food stalls, hospitality and children’s amusements.

Fishing or angling is one of the most popular pastimes in the Cotswolds especially in the nearby River Avon. The limestone riverbeds provide an ideal environment for traditional fly-fishing for brown trout or the silver-purple grayling and the local lakes are well stocked with chubb, roach, pike and carp.

A holiday in Broadway is a great opportunity to enjoy the surrounding beautiful landscape through walks or by participating in or just watching some of the many sporting activities that take place in the Cotswolds.
