Welcome to July Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals.
July Cottage is a stunning, traditional Cotswold stone 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.

A security deposit of £150 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property.

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.
Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

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.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
