The Lygon Arms – Broadway, Worcestershire
Visit a hotel that has been coloured by the characters of history. At The Lygon Arms you can eat in the suite (now a private dining room) that Oliver Cromwell stayed in the night before the Battle of Worcester in 1651, and whose former guests include Edward VII, Elizabeth Taylor and Prince Philip. Offering a glorious overview of the Cotswolds, The Lygon Arms in the centre of Broadway is the ideal destination from which to discover one of the most beloved regions in the country. Explore the Cotswold Way, a walk that will reward you with countryside views, picture-perfect villages and pre-historic landmarks. Featuring a thriving foodie scene, leading boutique shops, family attractions, filming locations, and a historic and authentic heritage, here you can tailor the perfect day out. The Lygon’s 86 bedrooms are beautifully decorated by Anita Rosato, and don’t forget to visit its indulgent spa. Most impressive of all is the relaxed and informal dining space at The Lygon Bar and Grill, where carefully crafted menus use the finest locally sourced ingredients.
