Broadwindsor is a small village with a mix of lovely period cottages and houses. The village has a village shop and a pub which serves traditional home-cooked food. Broadwindsor's 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 went to search the inn but became distracted. After solving the situation, they went straight to bed exhausted. This allowed Charles disguised as a serving wench to escape. The Castle Inn burnt down and rebuilt in 1850 as the George Inn.
The beautiful surrounding hills allow lots of walking opportunities to admire the views. The Lewesdon and Pilsdon hills are local landmarks with Lewesdon deemed to be the highest in the county at 279 metres. There is some good-natured bantering to argue if Pilsdon is actually the highest hill but it is 2 metres smaller. Lewesdon Hill is well worth a visit at bluebell time, enhancing the beauty even more.
