Ilmington is a quiet village, with little traffic, being four miles from the nearest main road, perfectly located just a few minutes drive from many of the more famous Cotswold villages such as Moreton in the Marsh, with its rail link to London, Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water, The slaughters, and Chipping Campden, where you can find old English tea rooms and quaint individual shops to potter around, and visitor attractions for you to visit. We are only seven miles from Stratford Upon Avon, set along the river Avon with its famous Theatre and shops café’s and abundance of restaurants, and Warwick with its famous Castle.  For those National Trust lovers we have several properties on the door step, Hidcote Gardens, Snowshill Manor, Upon House, and Charlcote Park.  There are maps available including local walks and details of places of interest locally so you don’t miss the best bits.  You will find lots to do whatever your interest.

 Having recently retired from running a tourist board gold award accommodation business in the Cotswold's and moving to live nearer our daughter in France, we have recently purchased Cedar Cottage as our holiday home so that we may visit family and friends locally. We have fully refurbished the cottage to a very high standard for our own use. It is a two bed roomed cottage, but only one bedroom is available for guests use. We are happy to share this special place with you, therefore, you will find all the comforts of home and the luxury touches not often found in holiday accommodation.  

We have always loved Ilmington, it is a very special village and we are sure you will find that once visited it is not easily forgotten.  

Our property managers live in the village and will be there to greet you, and are available if you have any problem during your stay.
