Broadwindsor's most noted claim to fame is its connections with King Charles II. King Charles took refuge in the Castle Inn in 1651 whilst escaping from the parliamentarians. Troops intended to search the inn but were side tracked by a rumpus in the village over a baby being born to a camp follower.

When they eventually sorted out the problem they went straight to bed exhausted. This allowed Charles disguised as a serving wench to escape. The Castle Inn burnt down and was rebuilt in 1850 as the George Inn.

Braodwindsor is home to a thriving Craft and Design Centre offering a wide range of local crafts unique gifts and an award winning restaurant. The local pub the White Lion is just across the Square if you fancy a quiet drink and our secluded garden is the ideal place to relax - weather permitting!
