The Lygon Arms
15miles SW of Stratford-upon-Avon, 39miles NW of Oxford
Spa & Leisure
Surrounded by three acres of grounds, the hotel’s spa and leisure facilities are incorporated into the historic building and its setting thanks to floodlit tennis courts and a croquet lawn for finer weather, as well as a gym, pool, spa bath, plunge pool, sauna and steam room and the rather unique feature of a roof which can be opened on sunny days. Complementing the ultimately escapist vibe that the area invokes, their spa also offers a number of treatments and therapies using Decléor and Jessica products.
Hotel & Accommodation
The warm, Cotswold stone and chocolate-box perfect architecture of The Lygon Arms is the first thing that strikes you upon arriving at the hotel which dates back to 1532. The interiors meanwhile have been sympathetically restored, keeping original features such as flagstone floors, wood panelling and stone mullions alongside contemporary additions across public areas and 77 bedrooms thanks to designer Stephen Oberwegner.
The restaurant in the Great Hall retains the ultimate welcome of a historic resting place in the form of locally produced food and a menu that has been awarded two AA Rosettes. There is also a more casual dining experience in the form of Barrington’s Brasserie and a cosy bar area.
