THE EARLY HISTORY OF LYPIATT
In the early 1800's, Galipot Farm and its surrounding fields were bought by the Earl of Suffolk, who had a grand bow-fronted house built. The building of Suffolk House in around 1808 marked a new phase for this area of Cheltenham
‘Lypiatt’ is a word which means ‘gate in an enclosure fence which only deer can leap’. In this instance the name has a very old association with this part of Cheltenham, long pre-dating any town development.
Lypiatt Hotel was built on a field called The Lypiatts, and shown on a 1776 enclosure map as Lippetts. On the 1834 map, when the Tivoli Place houses were newly constructed, Andover Road was named as Lippiate Street - not to be confused with the present day Lypiatt Street.
The elegant curve of Lypiatt Road is most likely an affectation of those who built it. Off Lypiatt Road lies Lypiatt Terrace one of the widest of Cheltenham’s major terraces.
Lypiatt House is a short walk (300m) from the fashionable shopping and restaurant area of Montpellier. Built in the typical Victorian style and set in its own attractive grounds and with ample parking and ideally situated in the centre of the Cotswold's and Cheltenham town centre.
