Waugh was born in Midsomer Norton, Somerset in 1866. He was the son of a prosperous country physician and was the nephew of Edmund Gosse. Among ancestors bearing the Waugh name, the Rev. Alexander Waugh (1754–1827) was a minister in the Secession Church of Scotland who helped found the London Missionary Society and was one of the leading Nonconformist preachers of his day. His grandson Alexander Waugh (1840–1906) was a country medical practitioner, who bullied his wife and children and became known in the Waugh family as "the Brute". Arthur was the elder of his two sons.
In 1892, he wrote the first biography of the poet Alfred Tennyson, which was published by William Heineman. In 1894, he contributed to the first issue of the magazine The Yellow Book. In 1899 he wrote the rhymes for a children's book with illustrations by William Nicholson. In 1900 Waugh wrote and published Robert Browning, a brief biography of the author of the same name. He was also a regular correspondent for the magazine The New York Critic, and from 1906 to 1931, he was a literary critic for the London newspaper The Daily Telegraph.
His published works include poetry, biographies, literary criticism, and an autobiography, titled One Man's Road, published in 1931.
