Bruce was such a great host and the cottage is so well set up with beautifully immaculate and comfortable rooms. Wonderful surprise to have the jacuzzi bath also! Food was plenty available with delicious treats in our room. You won't go hungry here.

Fantastic B&B that catered for all our needs and more. Room was full of lovely touches (and home made biscuits!), breakfast was amazing! We took a walk from Ilmington to Ebrington and Hidcote - worth trying! Also drove to Stratford, which is only 8 miles away, for some theatre.

We stayed three nights in this charming B&B in the small village of Ilmington, just south of Stratford-on-Avon. Spacious room with a kitchette, we didn't use, big comfortable 4 poster bed and a very large bathroom. Great base to enjoy the Cotswolds.

It's hard to follow on after some of the other reviews but it is exactly as said and then some more. We had a bank holiday weekend break and did not want to come home at the end of it.
