Things to Do
There are very many special places to visit and things to do locally, depending on your taste for culture, family activities, history, food and drink, architecture or just quiet country pursuits.
The world famous Shakespeare's Birthplace Museum is just 9 miles away in Stratford-upon-Avon where there are many other touristy things to do. These include visiting the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, where you can see a performance or just visit; sitting in the park by the river or taking a pleasure cruise or rowing boat out on the river. There are also three other historic Shakespeare houses in the district.
For children, there are other attractions. Perhaps the best known is Warwick Castle, which is one of the most impressive castles in England. They also have a programme of special events such as ice-skating and a winter fair in the Christmas holiday season and jousting in the Summer.
There is also the natural beauty of the Cotswold Hills. Perhaps the most beautiful of the nearby towns is Chipping Campden.
The nearest village is Ilmington where there are two excellent pubs: the award-winning Howard Arms and the equally delightful Red Lion. Two miles away lies the sleepy hillside village of Ebrington, with another excellent pub, the Ebrington Arms.
Around the area, there are many country walks with fantastic views, and we can lend you maps to help find your way around.
There is a nice public swimming pool just 2 miles away which is never very crowded.
There is a bike hire company Cotswold Country Cycles 3 miles away.
