July Cottage is a stunning, traditional Cotswold stone detached cottage, located in the heart of the picture postcard village of Ilmington, in the north-east corner of the Cotswolds. Despite being a small, peaceful village, Ilmington is fortunate to have two pubs, a village shop and a lovely Norman church. The village is surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside and is only five miles away from the famous Cotswold market town of Chipping Campden and seven miles away from Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. Other places, such as Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Warwick Castle are easily accessible from Ilmington, as are the many beautiful market towns and villages of the Cotswolds. The owners of July Cottage have lovingly refurbished the property, to highlight its many traditional character features, including oak beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls and a beautiful fireplace, with a wood burning stove. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a BT TV and a new, well presented kitchen. July Cottage sleeps a maximum of five people, in three bedrooms, with a beautiful family bathroom. There is a lovely private garden outside the cottage and quiet on street parking is available. The cottage is perfect for groups of friends or families seeking a character filled property, in a lovely village, surrounded by beautiful countryside. House Rules Security deposits A security deposit of £150 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. Occupancy The maximum occupancy of the property is five guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant. Pets One small well-behaved dog is welcome to stay at July Cottage, at a cost of £20 per booking. For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure. A wooden gate will be provided to prevent dogs from going upstairs. Bed sizes and configurations Bedroom 1: Double bed Bedroom 2: Double bed Bedroom 3: Single bed Bathrooms Family bathroom: Bath, walk-in shower, toilet, wash basin, heated towel rail Heating, fuel and logs The property has an oil fired central heating system. Electricity and oil are included in the rental price. An initial basket of logs is provided for the wood burning stove and further log supplies can be purchased locally. Services provided The property has free wireless internet access and a BT TV, with access to Netflix and Amazon Prime. There is no telephone at the property. Mobile phone reception is variable, typically being better outside the property than inside. Parking Free on street parking is readily available outside or close to the cottage. Child friendly facilities A travel cot (without linen) and a high chair are provided. Initial consumables A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay. Accessibility, health and safety This is an old property and has character features, including a slightly uneven floor on the first floor, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency. The smoke detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.More

About the neighbourhood
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
