Luxurious romantic old world charming country cottage accommodation with King sized or double four poster beds, ensuite bathrooms with bath and shower or whirlpool and hospitality tray. Breakfast is served in our dining room or, as an added luxury, in the privacy of your own bedrooms where you can sit at your table looking out over our pretty cottage garden. A tranquil haven where you can relax and get away from it all.
All of our rooms are furnished with hand crafted country pine antique furniture. Cottage memorabilia give a feel of old-world charm with modern facilities. All bedrooms overlook the delightful cottage garden which guests are welcome to enjoy.
Ilmington is a very picturesque Cotswold village in an area of outstanding beauty. The village green is surrounded by beautiful Cotswold stone cottages and there is an old stone church where traditional bell ringing can be heard. There is a village shop and two traditional country pubs, one of which is less than five minutes walk away and provide an excellent menu and delicious food.
We are seven miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, five miles from Chipping Campden and near to Hidcote Manor and many famous Cotswold villages. We are a non-smoking establishment, open all year round.

    “The best B&B we've ever stayed in!”

    This fantastic B&B is in a quaint, alluring and tranquil location, with a great view of the surrounding area.
    Great cosy pubs are within short walking distance or if you fancy a drive through the country roads, a few more pubs provide for a lovely dinner experience or quiet evening drink. If you are a keen walker, there are some great local walks with breathtaking views of the Cotswold's hills! Maps to follow all suggestions for activities are provided in a very helpful folder found in the room. We found the information in it very useful and relied on it for a lot of our stay!
    My girlfriend and I stayed in the Rose Suite, which was very clean, a good size, tastefully decorated with a four poster bed, TV and an on-suite, with a relaxing whirlpool bath. Homemade shortbread greeted us on arrival which was an unexpected and lovely detail!
    The cooked breakfast was made from local produce and tasted absolutely delicious! I fully recommend the Folly Challenge breakfast that will keep your appetite at bay until late afternoon!
    Pam and Bruce were very welcoming and great hosts throughout our stay, with lots of helpful, friendly advice and knowledge of the local and surrounding areas.
    Off road parking and free WiFi was also available.
    Overall, Rachel and I had a very enjoyable, relaxing and fulfilled stay!! We will definitely return to this B&B, should we visit this part of the Cotswold's again, and would highly recommend this place to stay.
