ILMINGTON Is a beautiful village mainly built of Cotswold stone in an area of outstanding natural beauty nestling at the foot of the Campden Hills close to the Warwickshire/Gloucestershire border. The village lies approximately 5 miles from Chipping Campden, 7 miles from Stratford upon Avon and 4 miles from the market town of Shipston on Stour with its excellent shopping facilities. It is a totally unspoilt village with an historic church, two excellent inns, a community shop and village café, and a thriving primary school. It also has its own tennis club with all weather courts, cricket, football and bowls clubs together with an active community. A short distance from Ilmington are two well known gardens - Hidcote (National Trust) and Kiftsgate. There is a main line train service to London (Paddington) from Moreton-in-Marsh (9 miles).
