English Country Inns


Welcome to The Brocket Arms!

This 14th century country inn simply oozes charm and character with its low ceilings, oak beams and inglenook fireplaces. Guests can enjoy delicious, seasonal food accompanied by a wide range of real ales and wines in the bars and restaurant. There are 5 double en-suite rooms including a stunning four poster, and one twin room with its own bathroom.

The Brocket Arms was originally the monastic quarters for the Norman church until the Reformation. Legend has it that a priest was tried and hanged in the building and that it has been haunted ever since!

Ayot St. Lawrence is one of the loveliest historic villages in Hertfordshire. It was the home of George Bernard Shaw, who lived there for 40 years until his death in 1950. His house, Shaw's Corner, now belongs to the National Trust.
