Sleep in the suite that Oliver Cromwell stayed in the night before the Battle of Worcester in 1651 at the Lygon Arms in the Cotswolds; dating back to the 1300s when it was known as the White Hart, this grand hotel is steeped in history and has carvings and etchings dating back to the 1600s. This family-friendly property with roots back to Tudor times can be found on the High Street in Broadway.
The Cocktail Bar serves inventive tipples and is an excellent spot to enjoy pre- and post-dinner drinks; they make a mean Bloody Mary and Blackberry Mojito. If vino's more your thing, head to the Wine Bar, a relaxed affair where a selection of European wines by the glass, carafe or bottle can be found, and Italian small plates. Informal all-day dining takes place at the Lygon Bar & Grill, where British produce is celebrated using local ingredients from surrounding farms, artisans, and Cotswold suppliers. Puy lentil Scotch egg with coconut and lime yoghurt, crispy squid with chipotle sauce, and Beef Wellington are just a few of the tasty dishes on the menu.
Seasonally-themed Afternoon Tea is served daily, with specially-created options available for littluns, and the Lounges are the place to unwind with a sarnie or a bowl of chips after a country romp.
The Lygon Arms has been welcoming guests since the 14th-century. These days, the refurbed 86 suites and rooms range from classic to quirky and are filled with antiques and fine art, plus original features such as beams and open fireplaces. Some bedrooms are dog-friendly too.
A stay at the Lygon Arms wouldn't be complete without a trip to the tranquil spa. Situated close to the 3-acre garden, the oasis of calm has therapies to treat the mind, body, and spirit using products such as Oskia and Elemis. The state-of-the-art gym is equipped with Technogym equipment, and there's also a heated indoor pool with retractable roof for when the weather plays ball, and a sauna and steam room.
There's plenty to do in and around Broadway throughout the year including vintage car festivals, markets, events, and art exhibitions. And there's no shortage of activities for the whole family, ranging from Adam Henson's farm (20 minutes' drive) and the Wildlife Park (just over half an hour by car) to the model village and Birdland in Bourton-on-the-Water.
Free parking is available.
