When to go?

As English weather is notoriously unreliable, there's never a guarantee of sunshine. June-Sept should promise good weather, but there will be more tourists around. We'd suggest April and May or September and October. These shoulder periods often have bright sunshine and there's fantastic walking nearby. The hotel is quietest during November - March and days are shorter, but if you're after a romantic weekend this would be a lovely place to hole up, especially if it was snowing outside.

Save to favouritesPrintMailRussell's of BroadwayHoney-coloured buildings glow in the evening sun; the village green is immaculately clipped and dogs are basking on its warmth. This is England at its most glorious, most picturesque - and all we can think is, why don't we live here? The main street stretches up in front and within seconds Russell's appears on the left-hand side. Outside, cushioned garden benches sit under vast white umbrellas and and the flagged patio leads straight into the attractive restaurant. The former showroom of Sir Gordon Russell's furniture, the ground floor is roomy, light and filled with dining tables. Crisp white linens and a well-stocked wine wall set the tone; it's elegant but laid-back and the staff are warm and chatty. Out the back is an alfresco eating area, upstairs are the 7 [r:UK045:rooms]. These, owner Andrew explains, are not the main focus, but they're gorgeous nonetheless. Oak four-poster beds, exposed stone walls, chenille sofas and silk cushions. But don't get too comfy: [i!!dinner] awaits downstairs and it's even better...
