Lovely property in the most delightful setting.
Being a couple who have stayed in the Cotswolds on numerous occassions Ilmington has to be one of our most favourite villages, it is very pretty with lovely local walks and the village itself is a delight to walk around. This cottage was a real find and is fantastic place for those who want to comre and go as they please and cater for themselves. It is very pretty, clean and cosy with a lovely little garden for those sunny days. Tony and Felicity have thought of everything to make a stay a memorable one with the welcome Rustic Loaf and home made Jam awaiting on the large kitchen table along with the awaiting tea pot and cups was just what was needed after the drive. Our stay was for New Years so the log fire was a lovely touch which didn't take any effort at all to light with the crackling logs supplied. Lastly there's masses of space for parking and there's WiFi also. Overall this property and location is first class with the owners very keen to ensure your stay is an enjoyable one. Thank you Felicity and Tony.
Gorgeous cottage in a lovely village. We were made to feel very welcome in a ‘home away from home ‘.
I always love having Australians stay and especially their 'can do' attitude. Due to major works in the village, beyond my control (new underground cables) this lovely mother and daughter were faced with the prospect of a whole day of their holiday without electricity but were totally un-phased by this. I feel so fortunate to find myself hosting delightful guests such as these and I am glad they enjoyed their stay.
Perfect, idyllic Cotswold cottage in a picturesque village with impeccable owners
We stayed for 6 days in Imlington, which is on the north borders of the Cotswolds. It is perfect for exploring Stratford upon Avon, Chipping Camden, Broadway, Dalesford Organic Farm, Chipping Norton, Kingham and many other nearby villages. We went on many long walks across the rolling countryside, aided by the excellent maps provided by the owners, Felicity and her husband.
The cottage itself sits across the driveway to the owner's own home. Although they keep very much to themselves, they are always on hand if you need any tips about the local attractions.
The place is perfect for 4 people, in our case 2 adults and 2 kids. Everything was clean, spotless and warm when we arrived. Felicity added a lovely touch of homemade fresh bread, butter and raspberry jam, plus a pint of milk in the fridge. The kitchen is well stocked with all the possible knick knacks you need and there is a local village shop open 7 days a week within a 5 minute walk or a local Waitrose within a 10 minute drive. The kitchen is spacious and we spent a few long evenings across the dining table when we ate indoors.
There are plenty of books, board games, DVDs, and a large flatscreen TV which, via Google Chrome, can stream your versions of Netflix or Amazon Prime. Wifi is excellent, although phone coverage is poor. There is a great local park about 2 min walk and there is a great walking route from Imlington to Ebrington on your doorstep.
Special mention must go to the garden which, albeit slightly small, is a haven of greenery and bright shrubbery in a secluded sun soaked spot with no onlookers around or above. Plus they have a table tennis in the shed.
We chose this cottage based on the previous reviews which hinted that this could be a home away from home based on the care and loving attention from the owners; this view has been further cemented and we highly recommend this delightful property.
It was a pleasure to host this delightful family and I am delighted that they enjoyed the comforts of home while still enjoying the wider area and the village of Ilmington, itself. As my guest points out, the mobile/cell phone reception in the village is poor and I do stress this in all my listings. I provide an 'emergency' landline in case of being unable to obtain a signal in......emergencies! However the wifi is good so you can boost the signal using wifi call if your provider allows and of course, over the wifi you can use services such as Whatsapp or skype for calls.
English Garden of Eden
This was our first trip to England, and we positively loved every second. We stayed at Sansome Cottage for one week and are missing it already! This cottage is set in one of the most quaint, friendly, and charming communities in the Cotswolds. The small community has a great Pub and little local shop. The owner of the cottage, Felicity, is incredibly hospitable, warm, and available. She was never intrusive. She provided fresh bread and flowers upon our arrival, and the cottage was clean from top to bottom. The cottage had all of the conveniences needed for cooking and relaxing. The tranquil, private little garden was an unexpected delight. The were a variety of local walks that were visually stunning. We will definitely return to this village and cottage when we are blessed with another visit to England!
Thank you for your lovely review! We very much enjoyed having such delightful, appreciative guests and so pleased that you are contemplating a return visit to this peaceful little corner of England. We are indeed fortunate to live in such a great location for year round scenic walks. There is a different one for every day of the week from our doorstep!
The Perfect Place to Stay in the Cotswolds
We have just returned from our 6th stay at Sansome Cottage. We first found it online in 2008 and fell in love with this place! The location is perfect. The decor is lovely and welcoming. The village is charming, especially the village shop. The kitchen is large and very well equipped for family dinners at home. My best memories of the cottage are of sitting around the huge kitchen table eating meals with a view of our own private English garden.
The owners, Felicity and Tony, are extremely helpful and friendly while also giving guests their privacy. Felicity puts fresh flowers in every room and has home-baked goodies waiting upon arrival.
They get many return guests, which says it all! We can't wait to return.
We just love that you fly thousands of miles from Texas to us to come back to Sansome Cottage again and again! And you came at just the right time ( in March) for daffodils and skipping lambs and with the bonus of sunshine days too! We look forward to your 7th visit!
Perfect Cotswold Cottage
This was a girls dream vacation...to spend three weeks wandering England and the Cotswolds. Sansome Cottage was the ideal location for our day trips. It was also a lovely and comfortable place to stay. The village is easily walkable with friendly pubs close by with wonderful food. The village people are warm and friendly and Felicity and Tony are the perfect hosts. They provide everything you could possibly want or need. The cottage has mounds of information on the area with maps as well. Felicity was more helpful than any hostess I have ever encountered. She anticipates your needs before you know you wanted or needed it! We loved every minute of the time we spent here and we are truly missing the beauty, peace and quiet of Sansome Cottage and Ilmington. Lastly, we miss the lambs that we watched grow up in the pasture near the cottage. We would go back here again in a heartbeat!
Such a pleasure to have these two girls here and they so kindly brought me a big bag of goodies, typical of Georgia, USA on their arrival although we have never even met before! I was very touched. I am very pleased that they enjoyed Ilmington, the cottage and of course the little (now getting big!) lambs next door!
Cotswold kullarna betecknas som ett naturskönt område och vår by, Ilmington, lika långt från vackra Chipping Campden och historiska Shipston on Stour (4 miles) ligger på den norra kanten av AONB. Livliga och turistiska Stratford upon Avon (7 miles), hem för Bard, erbjuder Shakespeare en mängd sevärdheter - teatrar, museer, utmärkta shoppingmöjligheter och båtliv på floden Avon. Många underbara Cotswold städer och byar, såsom Stow on the Wold, Broadway, Bourton på vattnet, Burford ligger inom en enkel enhet och Ilmington själv är en dold pärla. Det är en lugn by, utanför huvudvägarna, med slingrande stigar mellan de övervägande 17 och 18-talet guldfärgade Cotswold stenbyggnader, en Saxon / Norman kyrka, och en herrgård, komplett med gamla fiskdammar. De flesta av våra besökare kommer att njuta av skönheten i Cotswolds, oavsett om det är att besöka de många stora hus och trädgårdar öppna för allmänheten, de historiska platserna av intresse eller för att ta enheter, vandringar eller för att gå igenom den härliga naturen. Vissa kommer särskilt eftersom de vill besöka födelseplats Shakespeare och njuta av teatrar i Stratford. Alla kan koppla av och varva ner i lugn stugan inställning gården, läsa eller ha en BBQ i helt privat liten trädgård, lyssna på kyrkklockorna eller fågelsång, deras melodier ibland bryts av prat lekande barn i skolgården upp vägen, deras skratt är den enda betydande vardagliga ljud. Du är aldrig långt från den milda ljudet av en porlande bäck som löper nästan i hemlighet genom byn, ibland dyka tunnelbana, bara för att reemerge igen. I strömmen kaskader en mini vattenfall, överflödet från den restaurerade medeltida fiskdammar i Middle Street, upphör endast under perioder av extrem torka.
Om du älskar historia finns det ingen brist på underbara hus och slott att besöka inom 60 minuters bilresa - för att nämna några slott, Broughton, Sudeley, Berkeley, Warwick, Oxford och Kenilworth.
Om du vill besöka London, det finns en bra tågtrafik från Moreton i Marsh men annars landsbygdstrafiken är dålig och det rekommenderas att du har en bil om du bara vill ta det lugnt i stugan, få din online shopping levereras men för vardagliga leveranser lanthandel är bara en kort promenad till den övre Green.
Städerna i Oxford och Worcester och staden Cheltenham är alla inom en 40-45 minuters bilresa. På Sansome House Cottage du är både i hjärtat av England och i Cotswolds med ett utmärkt vägnät i alla riktningar.
Sansome Cottage har en Facebook-sida. Jag lägga lite uppdateringar om stugan och området (kommande händelser nära tiden) där så du kanske vill ta en titt! Det finns en "Vad är på" avsnitt på stugan webbplats för varje månad på året och guidar till området på Houfy.
