  • "Ittle Gables is a beautiful property in a beautiful place."

    As a frequent cottage renter I am often a little anxious about what I will find - but this house was a lovely surprise. It was not just as good as I hoped it would be - it was better. I thoroughly fell in love with it and I told the owner Karl this each time I spoke to him. He was totally fabulous and always available for any and all enquiries. My main concern is always cleanliness and it met my standards - which isn’t easy! I wanted to rebook again before I’d even left the property.

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Little Gables. It's wonderful to hear how much you loved the house, it's full of period charm and we are so pleased you enjoyed the stay with us. We would love to welcome you again in the future. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

  • "Little Gables is your quintessential perfect Cotswold cottage, built out of Cotswold stone with wooden beams and stone floors everywhere."

    Given its many original features, such as leaded lights and stone mullion windows with thick stone walls, it is surprisingly warm, particularly with the Aga in the kitchen that is great to come down to in the morning. Karl has done a fantastic job with the tasteful decoration and furnishing, all in keeping with this property and throughout our stay he made himself available should we need to contact him, which we didn’t. If you want to experience living in a true historical Cotswold cottage, with everything you need for that little bit of luxury thrown in, then Little Gables would be hard to beat. We had a fantastic time in Broadway and can’t wait to plan our next return.

    Thank you Kevin, very kind of you and very much appreciated. Property Owner

    The garden is beautifully maintained and we loved the Stag. Made extra special by being able to walk out straight on to the high street full of lovely shops cafes & pubs. We was lucky to be there for the Christmas lights switch on and there were some trees outside the cottage lit up. The issue we had with the stairgate was promptly rectified by Karl.

    Having all the original character of a listed property and with its quirky features, this cottage is charming. With comfortable furnishings, a well-equipped kitchen and everything else we needed being provided our time here was relaxed and memorable. The spectacular garden is a place we spent many hours during our summer stay and is a truly special place to absorb the ambience and unique atmosphere surrounding the cottage. Thankyou to the owner Karl for taking the time to make sure we had a great stay in his property. Indeed, this was our 3rd stay at Little Gables and we can honestly say, every time has been great. We will certainly be back!

  • "A lovely property and very well equipped."

    First time using an Aga but it was quite easy. Location was great. The garden is really nice and decent garden furniture which is not always the case. The only recommendation I would make is that the kitchen bin is a bit small and one ends up using more black bags (not great for the environment). Maybe a free standing one somewhere?

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at Little Gables. It's lovely to hear how much you enjoyed your stay and thank you for your comments with regards to the bins, we will forward this to the Owner for review. Kind regards Manor Cottages. Property Owner

    It is historically characterful, very well appointed, cosy for the whole of a wet, windy, winter week and easily spacious enough for us 6 adults. The kitchen / dining room was the centre of our household with the Aga keeping us toasty warm. It is very easy to cook on as it's automatically kept up to cooking heat all the time. We cooked dinners for the entire Christmas week including Christmas dinner very easily. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. Bathrooms are lovely with acres of hot water. It was our perfect home from home. Xmas decorations were much appreciated.

    We are a group of 6 best friends celebrating a birthday and early Christmas day, complete with gifts and full turkey roast dinner cooked on the wonderful Aga. We were in the heart of the village of Broadway, moments away from the famous Christmas market, so we took full advantage of all the friendly local shops and restaurants. We also visited the Sudeley Castle Christmas lights extravaganza. Both definitely did not disappoint Our gratitude also extends to the very approachable owner Karl, who was very helpful in getting the cottage beautifully and tastefully decorated for us before we arrived. The bedrooms are all delightful and comfortable beds. The lounge is very cosy, especially with the wonderful log burner in full swing. The dinning room was a perfect retreat where we spent time eating, drinking and talking, away from the kitchen. A special mention must go to the gardener here! The garden is pristine and beautiful, as is the Cottage and village. We honestly wanted for nothing during our stay and we will cherish memories made in this beautiful cottage for ever. Would we stay again?…in a heartbeat! Thankyou Broadway and Karl. The McWheelers (1-5 Dec 2022)

  • "The property was very well equipped."

    We would have liked a power shower, and the kitchen cupboards were rather old and worn. Spiders and other insects were often seen which I suppose would be expected due to the age of the house. There was no draining holder for plates and cups. Cooking on the Aga was difficult. Hope that this feedback is taken as constructive and useful.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this helpful feedback and we hope you enjoyed your stay at Little Gables. Spiders are an integral part of the countryside but thank you for bringing some other issues to our attention which have been passed on to the owner. We hope to welcome you again.

The property

Little Gables is an exquisite Grade II listed property dating back to the mid-16th century, situated in the idyllic village of Broadway.

It is the ideal base for a family or group of friends who are seeking a relaxing break in this stunning part of the Cotswolds.

Park up to three cars in the convenient parking spaces in the shared car park to the rear of the property before unloading your bags and being greeted by the pretty rear garden bursting with shrubs and trees.

The rear door opens into the spacious and ornate entrance hall which provides space to store your coats, boots and umbrellas, before guiding you through into the characterful sitting room which has been lovingly decorated with smart wooden flooring, exposed wooden beams and dual aspect stone mullion windows overlooking the high street and back garden; the perfect room for a relaxed evening watching a film on the Smart TV on Netflix, whilst the woodburning stove creates a warming ambience for you and your guests.

Moving through the property, the dining room combines contemporary style with wonderful character and is a welcoming space to enjoy your home-cooked meals that have been rustled up in the bright and spacious open-plan kitchen/diner, which is well-equipped with everything you require to cook a delicious meal, whilst listening to some tunes on the digital radio.

Taking the staircase in the entrance hall, you’ll be led up to a wonderful shower room on your left and the beautiful triple aspect master bedroom to your right, containing a welcoming king-size bed and an addition single camp bed for a child (on request), with ample storage space.

Moving through the hall, you will come to the second bedroom which links the two sides of the house and is an elegant room with a king-size bed where you can relax and get lost in the pages of a compelling novel from the selection of books on offer.

Onwards through the property you will come to the staircase that leads down to the kitchen, which leads you to third bedroom overlooking the bustling village and contains a digital radio where you can listen to some relaxing music from the comfort of your double bed.

A further staircase from this hallway guides you up to the second-floor where you will find the stylish bathroom situated, with a freestanding oval bath.

Once you’re well acquainted with the internal rooms and you’ve unpacked your bags, head into the beautifully laid out with a manicured garden to be surrounded by pristine flower beds and leafy shrubs at its borders.

Directly outside the property there is an attractive patio area which houses an outdoor table seating six, together with a parasol and charcoal barbecue and from here, Cotswold stone steps lead up to the lawn where stone benches provide a second seating area.

Once you’ve rested your head for the evening in one of the beautiful bedrooms, grab some breakfast at Hunters Tea Room before taking a leisurely walk around Broadway to discover an array of individual shops and restaurants, such as Cheltenham House Antiques, Blandford Books and Hamiltons Chocs & Sweets, where you’ll surely not leave empty handed!

Chipping Campden can be easily accessed by taking a scenic walk along the Cotswold Way walking trail and alighting at the War Memorial in Chipping Campden to enjoy a lovely walk around the 17th century market square before having a well-earned heart-warming meal at The Bakers Arms.

Heading slightly further North will bring you to the wonderful market town of Evesham, where you can visit the Almonry Museum and gift shop, and afterwards take a walk over to The Hampton Ferry which is a pedestrian cable ferry linking Evesham and the district of Hampton across the River Avon in the English county of Worcestershire.

Stratford-upon-Avon can be accessed in just over 30 minutes by car, which is the birthplace of William Shakespeare where there is an array of attractions for all the family to enjoy including The Creaky Cauldron, Shakespeare Centre, Stratford Butterfly Farm and the beautiful Bancroft Gardens, perfect for a day out with the kids!

For a fantastic holiday that you’ll remember forever, stay at Little Gables.
