The Lygon Arms, Broadway, Cotswolds

Areas: Public Areas and Guest Rooms

The Lygon Arms was once re-known as the UK’s oldest and most prestigious coaching Inn set in the heart of the Cotswolds. This is a grade one and two listed building, the roots of which date back to the 1300’s.

Under new ownership, the Hotel has been refurbished to return this property to its former glory. The new owners wanted ARID to create a synergy between the different styles of Architecture where previously they were disconnected.

The public areas were reconfigured to introduce three new bars and numerous lounges which form part of the extended F&B facilities.

Deep toned hues are applied in a myriad of dark spaces, off set with the warm tone of tan Leather, timber panelling and Cotswold Stone, hi-lited with carefully focussed lighting throughout.

New historical pieces have been carefully curated to replace modern case goods. Colour schemes of the 85 guestrooms have a bold tweed and plaid ‘look’ distinctively English and eclectic in style.

Original features have been revealed to form an historic backdrop to the newly designed interiors filled with references to the local heritage and surrounding countryside.
