The stunning Lygon Arms which dates from the 16th century is the perfect choice for family friendly luxury in the beautiful Cotswolds. Situated in the gorgeous Cotswold village of Broadway, this classic coaching inn has undergone a fabulous refurbishment programme which has seen all areas of the hotel, country club & spa sympathetically restored to its former glory.

Just two hours from London, the hotel is located on the High Street in the heart of Broadway is a perfect base from which to explore the Cotswolds. Imagine a stunning hotel which is luxurious for you, but equally as welcoming for your lovely little ones. Think of roaring log-burning open fireplaces, a Great Hall with a vaulted ceiling and original wood panelling built in the seventeenth century.  Having been visited by politicians and royalty through history, this gorgeous family friendly hotel in the Costwolds is fantastic for a relaxing stay and base for exploring.

For Kids

Let the kids cool down and have fun in the indoor heated pool, just be aware there are children swim times, so do check before you visit. Children’s splash times are Monday 9-10am & 3.30-6pm Tuesday 10-11am & 3.30-6pm and Wednesday to Sunday 9-11am & 3.30-6pm.

This is where King Charles stayed before battle during the English Civil War in 1649 and A Coat of Arms sits above the traditional fireplace to mark his royal visit.
