Complimentary Welcome Hamper
A complimentary welcome hamper will be awaiting you on your arrival containing milk, tea, fresh coffee, bread, butter, eggs, juice, wine and cheese, along with other essential items to prepare a light snack or breakfast. There may be some regional variations.

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 to the 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 discover 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.Morris men are often found performing throughout the local areas. The village is a short drive from Chipping Campden, Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick which all provide an array of shops, restaurants and pubs. If you fancy something outdoors we would highly recommend Hidcote Gardens and Kiftsgate GardensA short drive away you will find the town of Broadway, it is often referred to as the “show village of England” due to its beautiful honey coloured limestone buildings some of which date back to the 16th century. Visit the Broadway Deli to stock up on all the lovely, local produce that is beautifully presented inside and out of the shop.

"Lovely cottage & everything was great the only reason for not giving 5 stars is that the boiler was a bit dodgy."
Confirmed Guest – 5 Jan 2018
"What a lovely cottage in beautiful village in the cotswolds. The house was perfect with comfy beds, modern bathrooms, cosy sitting room and plenty of kitchen and dining space. We really enjoyed exploring the local area and the village pub ‘the Howard arms’ was very quaint. Also a fantastic welcome hamper was much appreciated. Definitely recommend a visit here."

"A beautifully presented cottage that provided a comfortable weekend stay as a base for our son's wedding day. Ideally situated for the newly opened wedding and reception venue at Blackwell Grange nearby, The Glen is a perfectly located retreat for the perfect escape and the complimentary welcome hamper is a feast in itself!"

"Lovely cosy cottage. Good spacious rooms. Unfortunately we did not realise there was not a downstairs toilet. However managed stairs even though I am suffering from a ruptur ed tendon in my foot.Found parking quite difficult even though we were out of season.Could be difficult in the summer."
Confirmed Guest – 27 Nov 2017
"Beautiful location, lovely accommodation.The cottage was spotless and incredibly welcoming; warm and cosily lit on our arrival - v welcoming on a very cold and dark evening."
Confirmed Guest – 5 Oct 2017
"An excellent cottage, well situated and all very well maintained.One slight criticism, some of the kitchen utensils/pots etc were a little worn and could ideally do with being replaced."

"Lovely, cosy, well equipped cottage in beautiful village"

"Loved this adorable cottage! It was tucked away but full of room for a family of 5. The rooms were spacious and bathrooms comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and the garden was beautiful."

"Excellent property in a gorgeous quiet village. Location was perfect. The property was prepared to a very high standard with everything that we could possibly need. Very comfortable and very clean. Beautifully presented."

"We stay in Rural Retreat properties at least once a year, and unfortunately The Glen at Ilmington wasn't up to your usual standard. It was very tired looking and when we walked in, it smelt of cigarette smoke, as if it had been smoked in for a long stay. It wasn't the smell of the fire hearth. The kitchen was very nice, but the blue sofa was stained and smelt of dog! The courtyard outside the kitchen was full of huge garden furniture which was not easy to navigate! The garden is obviously in the middle of a makeover but it was rather ugly especially at the rear, and looked very little like the picture on the website. The main bathroom was very disappointing, with a very small bath and no shower curtain so you couldn't use the shower head? The painted floor boards meant it was difficult to clean up when water was splashed. The main bedroom was lovely and large and obviously built with the kitchen extension, but there was such a big difference between it and the smaller, and very tired original cottage rooms that it caused some embarrassment on room allocation! The lounge too was unappealing and bland, it had no character and it wasn't a place that you wanted to sit and spend time in. Unfortunately we spilt some shepherds pie in the oven when it heated up and caused terrible smoke from the burning, but the fire alarm did not go off? Although when you pressed the test button it did sound. Perhaps this should be checked. The location for the cottage is really wonderful. However its position was very misleading from your website. It looks like The Glen is the cottage you see in the foreground? It was not explained that it was to the rear and that you had to walk through someone else's property (featured in the photograph) to reach your own front door. The house keeping, bed linen and towels were all very clean and well presented."

"Absolutely immaculate, idyllic location."

"This is the fourth stay in The Glen and it is still as good as ever.If I had one small comment it is that the bathroom paintwork is probably inneed of a refresher. The new cooker and C/H boiler were a great improvement."
Confirmed Guest
"An issue with the cottage (shower not working) was explained to us before the holiday and we were given the option of an alternative. We preferred to stay at the booked location and an appropriate discount agreed. Cottage very well prepared and an excellent hamper to set us up for the weekend."

"Unfortunately the shower was not working.RR were very prompt in trying to solve the problem but plummer was unable to fix the problem during our stay.RR have made a very kind gesture. Thank you for your help Sarah and thank you William for your kind gesture"

"We absolutely loved our cottage and wanted to move in permanently! It was in immaculate condition and all the information we needed was there so we could make the most of the property - they really seemed to have thought of everything. The Welcome Pack was outstanding - very comprehensive and good quality products (we loved that as much as possible of it was local produce). We will definitely be using Snaptrip again due to the quality of the proprety and services provided. Thank you!"

"The combi boiler means that running the bath takes for ever and precludes use of the shower. House nice but the bathrooms showing signs of age. Lovely village"

"Wonderful on all accounts; location, welcome hamper, cleanliness, comfiness of beds through to the generous amount of logs to keep us toasty in the evenings. (Previous non-Rural Retreat rental allocated four for the entire stay!). We'd had a fabulous stay - thank you."

"We have stayed many time at S41808, the cottage is perfect for us, beautiful cottage, everything and more as described in the book. The housekeeping is to an excellent standard."

"There was a problem with heating at our cottage, RR had tried to contact me before we arrived, but I had no phone signal. They provided heaters, a meal in a local Gastro pub and a bottle of champagne. They went above and beyond and I would highly recommend. I wanted to book with them as a friend took me away last year to a RR property following the sudden death of my husband. It was a lovely break. We are booking a break for next year."

"Lovely cottage in an untouched village. Comfortable furnishings and nice garden, even had things for our 19 month old grandson to play with. Would consider returning."

Confirmed Guest
"A truly beautiful property in a magical location. I'm ALWAYS delighted by Snaptrip properties but I must say this one is the first that looks in desperate need of a lick of paint and a good dust - lots of cobwebs and spiders."
Confirmed Guest
"Could not have been better. A stunningly beautiful cottage in the perfect location. The house was extremely well kept and there were so many thoughtful touches included, from the brand new patio furniture (delivered that day!) to the welcome hamper of all the essentials, so there was no need for us to go shopping when we arrived. It really was a home away from home and everyone had a fantastic stay."

"Beautiful cottage and garden in a lovely and very friendly village. The cottage was immaculate and very well equipped, ideal location for exploring the Cotswolds."
Confirmed Guest
"Needed some redecoration and a blind was broken as was the fridge light. It rained all week and the steps to the garden were overgrown with foliage so walking up there got us soaked. Would be better if some cutting down was done so you could see the garden from the patio"

"This is a lovely cottage that matches the description exactly. We had a dog with us and it was good for her too. The garden is indeed fully enclosed and we were able to let her have the freedom she needed. The house had plenty of space but character too. The village is a delight with plenty of safe walks both in and around the village. Gems like this are hard to find. Snaptrip never let me down. Mrs H, Shropshire"
