where 2 wear it

The Lygon Arms Broadway

For a weekend jaunt to the Lygon Arms,

in the beautiful Cotswolds,

I wore an Alice & Co wool jersey dress

You can be sure of a warm welcome at the Lygon Arms. They’ve got 16 fireplaces!

And they’ve had plenty of time to practice –

they’ve been looking after guests since the 16th Century.

Charles I and Oliver Cromwell both stayed – although not together!

Some more recent illustrious guests include…

What to do:

 Go for a walk. The Cotswold Way is 102 miles

meandering from Chipping Camden all the way to Bath .

 …although it goes through so many lovely Cotswolds towns and villages

my rucksack would be full of shopping in no time.

If you get as far as Chipping Sodbury you can sing the famous John Cale song.

‘Welcome back to Chipping Sodbury’

Or have a Rapunzel moment at Broadway Tower

you can walk from the hotel.

If you prefer four legs to two:

go for a hack at Woodland Riding Stables at nearby Woodstanley

Emma and her team will take you out for an exhilarating ride across her sheep farm.

This has stunning views over the countryside to the Malvern Hills and Black Mountains.

SHOP WATCH:

Hungry after my ride I concentrated on food this time

and bought some eggs, a bargain at £1…

Free range eggs for sale

and some lemon curd …

lemons and lemon curd

from the picture-perfect grocers in the High Street.

With all these foodie treats that stretchy dress was a good idea!
