The Lygon Arms Hotel Cotswolds
From classic to quirky, there is a variety of rooms at The Lygon Arms. Sleep like royalty in the Charles I Suite, where the namesake sovereign slumbered before a battle in the 1640s. With a king-size bed and a comfy sofa bed, the Junior Suites have room for the whole family, even four-legged family members can stay here!
The rooms offer: Wi-Fi, TV; Floris bath products; Nespresso coffee machine; tea-making facilities.
The Lygon Bar & Grill features a vaulted ceiling and serves seasonal British dishes paired with artisan wines. There are several guests lounges for guests to unwind in after a country walk, or enjoy a selection of light snacks and afternoon teas. The Lygon Wine Bar is an eatery on the Broadway High Street, serving Italian dishes and Italian and European wines.
The indoor pool area has the feel of a Victorian bath house with metal pillars supporting a raised walkway and a retractable glass roof for sunny Cotswolds summers. At the end of the 13-metre, heated pool, there’s a steamy spa bath for deep relaxation during kid-free hours (there are specific pool times for water-babies).
Set within three acres of tranquil gardens, the spa includes saunas for both sexes, a eucalyptus-scented steam room, nail studio and both single and double treatment rooms.
As well as individual treatments (facials, massages and specialised scrubs), the spa offers personal-training sessions, nutritional advice and all-out spa days, with lunch at the Spa Kitchen & Bar.
The menu includes fruit-filled smoothies and veggie-laden meals; but don’t worry, this isn’t a healthier-than-thou kind of place: wine, beer and puddings can be ordered too.
Free parking is available, and the nearby Cotswolds provide numerous scenic walks.
Couples particularly like the location — they rated it 9.6 for a two-person trip.
