Cotswolds Romantic Road via Lower Slaughter village

The Cotswolds timeless quality, beautiful rolling country and charming honey coloured stone villages is the perfect backdrop to a romantic drive - away from the madding crowd.

This circular route from Broadway passes a beautiful stately home, several typical cotswold hill villages, quaint riverside village, the Little Venice of the Cotswolds, an ancient Market Town, a bewitching manor house and a Folly high on the Cotswold escarpment.

To drive the route non-stop would only take a couple of hours because the total mileage is 45 miles. However, to properly take in the beauty and atmosphere you will, more than likey, spend a good full day before arriving back to Broadway full of wonderful memories.

Most of the route is using small 'B' roads and ungraded 'local' single track roads with passing places. Even in peak summer tourist times you will find these roads do not get very busy with traffic.
