The Glen is a charming Grade II listed Cotswold stone holiday cottage. Semi-detached and part thatched, this self catering accommodation has an attractive enclosed garden overlooking Ilmington's Norman church. There is a large kitchen/diner which is ideal, ensuring the “chef” never feels left out while others are relaxing on the perfectly positioned sofa in the same room.
Step out of the french doors onto the patio or wander up the steps to the second level lawned area and enjoy al fresco evenings in this charming garden, or retreat to the summer house for a little more comfort. For children wishing to explore, ask them to seek out the secluded wendy house at the top of this gently sloping garden.
Ilmington is a delightful village nestling at the foot of the Cotswold hills, surrounded by good walking countryside and lying in one of the UK's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Two traditional country pubs (including the Howard Arms, well-known locally for its excellent restaurant) are within easy walking distance of the cottage in addition to the well-stocked village shop.
