What a find this was. Tea and coffee making in room with homemade biscuits. Fantastic breakfast, their challenge breakfast is the bees knees. Clean tidy and convenient for lots of the surrounding places of interest. Local Walking is also good.

What kind sentiments, many thanks for this. Many of our guests comment on the "Folly Challenge" and some say that they don't need to eat again until the evening! We hope to see you again. Kind regards, Pam & Bruce More

We had a few days booked in at Folly Farm Cottage, and stayed in the Peony Suite. This is a large self contained room with a four poster bed and kitchen facilities - very comfortable. Ilmington is a delightful village well worth wandering around. The unused Roman Catholic Church has been converted into a community shop (and soon to be... More

We stayed in the self catering suite (Peony) but also took advantage of the brilliant breakfasts. A very comfortable place, with a private patio garden for the suite and real privacy and quiet. Hosts Pam and Bruce are very welcoming and go out of their way to ensure a comfortable stay. The village of Ilmington is full of interest, with... More

Liked everything about this hotel. The owner extended a warm welcome and he was such a humble persinality so as his wife. Room and the bathroom was so clean and the set-up of the room was breath taking. Cookies kept in the room were sooo yummy. Rooms were cleaned everyday while we were there. Best part was the breakfast. We... More

This is a wonderful B&B with many special touches, situated in a darling, quiet, Cotswold town. The hosts, Pam and Bruce, are incredibly welcoming and gracious, and they have created a charming retreat with wonderful decorative touches (and bits of whimsy here and there!). The room and common areas were very clean and relaxingly comfortable, and we were served large,... More

What a lovely peaceful place to stay. The highlights were the small touches in the room such as the lovely shortbread, the fridge with fresh milk in, the torch and the water machine outside the room. All this combined with friendly helpful hosts made it perfect. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

Returned to Ilmington after a few years break. Stayed at Folly Farm and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Pam and Bruce were excellent hosts - very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast excellent and nothing too much trouble. Will certainly return again, sooner rather than later. Brenda and Mick
