We looked forward to visiting the Cotswolds. We took a 7 hour plane ride, landed at Heathrow, then spent over two hours in line trying to get our rental car. Then we drove almost 2 hours to ilmington. The Howard Arms was everything we wanted. The area was so quaint!! After no sleep the night before, we were ready to... More

Since our last visit The Howard has been bought be a group of Locals and we were keen to see whether the change was for the better. ( Can't remember when we've been disappointed. ) My Wife had the cold... More

The Howard Arms at Ilmington is fantastic! The rooms are clean spacious and beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Study, a wonderful room with antique furniture added to a very comtemporary modern room it was superb. The food in the restaurant was top quality, evening meal and breakfast were excellent. The Howard Arms is situated 7 miles south of Stratford... More

Returned home yesterday after a two night stay at The Howard Arms. Booked through Secret Escapes. We had a lovely time and can't speak highly enough of the place. The room was of a boutique style with a fabulously deep bath tub as well as separate shower cubicle. The king sized bed was like a big marshmallow! The food here... More

This is a very old pub with lots of character, the room we stayed in was in the modern extension but still had lots of character. We stayed in one of the attic rooms which was huge but had limited head height at the sides, but this did not matter. One side there was a dormer window overlooking the car... More

Stayed here for weekend and was fabulous. From the minute we arrived the staff were so helpful. Room was amazing and the food was just as good. Everything had a personal touch and nothing was too much trouble. Will be going back again later this year without a doubt. Thank you Howard Arms.

We booked this last minute with secret escapes and were very impressed. We stayed in the garden room which was very spacious with a large bathroom. The food was delicious especially the twice cooked pork belly and the breakfast was very good with fresh baked bread. All the staff were very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great location, great... More

Lovely treat for my birthday. Food was great in very quirky room at restaurant. Loved it. Hotel room was very large especially the bathroom. Great for an evening stroll around the village. Lots of places to visit nearby.
