Lygon Arms

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

Something of a Cotswolds institution, the Lygon has been welcoming guests since the 14th century, and has played a part in some of the pivotal moments in British history, including acting as a base for King Charles I and his supporters to assemble before battle.

The 21st-century Lygon combines its long past with plenty of contemporary comforts – handmade mattresses and quality toiletries in the rooms, a luxury spa with a gym and pool, cocktails by the fire and upscale dining in the opulent Lygon Bar and Grill. Décor is dark and moody – great for cosy winter stays, but less appealing when the sun is out.

It’s beloved of American tourists and those searching for something a little more old-school than the Cotswold’s new breed of boutique hotels – traditionalists will find much to love.

Surrounding area

The Lygon Arms is in the centre of Broadway, one of the Cotswolds’ most picturesque villages.

The hotel sits on the main street – a genteel street of upscale cafés, restaurants and shops. All around the hotel are historic buildings of golden Cotswold stone – on the main strip and in the character-filled alleyways off it. Broadway is never noisy, but it does get crowded in peak season, being a favourite stop of the tour buses.
