Things to do in the sunshine...

Stroll to Broadway Tower

Farncombe Estate is a stroll away from the second-highest point in the Cotswolds – Broadway Tower was the brainchild of landscaping legend Capability Brown and, on a sunny day, the folly offers breathtaking views over the landscape. The surrounding grounds are great for picnics, and there’s a terrific café on site too.

As well as an astonishing selection of lovingly grown plants, flowers and gardenalia, there’s a charming art gallery, and the café has been a fixture on the Oxfordshire Restaurant Awards lists year after year.

Row on the Avon

Stratford is just 25 minutes’ drive from the estate, so as well as overdosing on Shakespeare, you can easily while away an afternoon on the water with a boat trip down the Avon. Pack a picnic to enjoy at the riverside and float your way through the historic town and into the beautiful, countryside that surrounds it.
