Classic Luxury

The Lygon Arms

Reading like a Who’s Who of British history, The Lygon Arms has played host to Charles I and Oliver Cromwell as well as Prince Philip, and its winding staircases, wooden beams and leaded windows offer a cozy base from which to explore the Cotswolds.

Broadway, The Cotswolds
The Lygon Arms
  • Located in the quaint town of Broadway, the hotel is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds

  • A seasonal British menu can be enjoyed in the elegant yet informal surrounds of the 16th century Grand Hall, while a number of lounges offer a cozy armchair to curl up in after a day of sightseeing

  • The elegant pool and well-equipped spa offer a relaxing range of treatments with a sauna, eucalyptus steam room and Techno-gym fitness center

  • With an enviable history, The Lygon Arms can count Charles I, Oliver Cromwell and Prince Philip as former guests

With cozy lounges, a range of dining options and supremely comfortable rooms and suites spread across the centuries-old building and the newer annexes, The Lygon Arms has been welcoming guests since the 14th century. Perfectly located to explore the beautiful town of Broadway, and further afield, this delightful Cotswold bolthole oozes historic charm and character in every nook, cranny and snug corner.

From the sumptuously comfortable mattresses, handmade in Devon, to Nespresso machines, Gordon Russell antiques and tartan furnishings, the 86 rooms and suites are quaint, comfortable and retain the old-world charm of the building. Sleep in a room once visited by royalty and soak in the history that seeps out of every beam, dappled glass window and creaking floorboard.

The seasonal British menu crafts local ingredients into classic dishes, in the grand surrounds of the 16th century hall. The Lygon Bar and Grill is a relaxed and informal dining space, despite its elegant leather banquettes and marble tables. The cozy Lygon Wine Bar offers lighter Italian-inspired dishes accompanied by a range of European wines, while a quintessentially English afternoon tea is served in the Terrace restaurant or in the courtyard. Inviting lounges with leather armchairs, Persian rugs and wooden rocking chairs by roaring fires offer a warm retreat after a day exploring the Cotswold countryside, with delicious cocktails and bar meals.

An indoor pool with a retractable roof allows for a dip whatever the weather, with children’s swim times available for those traveling with younger guests. In the tranquil spa you’ll find a sauna, eucalyptus-scented steam room and Techno-gym fitness center along with a Spa Kitchen and Bar for lighter meals or a glass of champagne. 

With historic Broadway on its doorstep, you could spend your time at The Lygon Arms exploring the antique shops, galleries and boutiques of this picture-perfect town, or travel further afield to explore Sudeley Castle, the Cotswold Wildlife Park, Blenheim Palace or the Royal Shakespeare Theater. Golf, clay-pigeon shooting, archery, horse riding and fishing can all be arranged to take you out into the beautiful Cotswold countryside.
