The History Ayot St. Lawrence is one of the loveliest and historic villages in Hertfordshire. 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 by the affable character ever since. In the village the attractive georgian Ayot House was once famous as Britain’s only silk farm. The ruined Norman church was replaced in 1778 by the existing Palladian church. Ayot St. Lawrence is well known as 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.

Cutest B&B, friendly staff and welcoming locals

Stayed on a Sunday night, didn't realise that they didn't do food on Sunday's so they organised a takeaway for us.

Above and beyond. Wonderful lit fireplace after a day of cycling. Room was great (amazing bathtub) and there was no noise at all throughout the evening. Lamb burger for lunch was good but was there for the ambiance (nice beer garden).

Great place

I had a very positive experience at the Brocket Arms; an excellent welcome, a great room and a nice meal and breakfast.

I stay at lots of hotels for one night and there aren't many I'd willingly want to re-visit - I'd really like another night here.
