Stayed here October 2015 on a short break for our wedding anniversary. Main event of our stay was a visit to The Pudding Club in nearby Mickleton. Bruce, Pam & Lindsey couldn't do enough for their guests. The rooms are well equipped, very comfortable & welcoming. Breakfasts offer great choice, with a very substantial option of the folly challenge -stands... More

This is a nice place to stay. Our room was spacious and the bathroom was nice too. Weather permitting you can sit in their garden too. Breakfast was very nice. Cute small town and close to other destinations in the Costwolds. I think the owners really try hard to make everyone feel at home.

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Folly Farm Cottage for a couple of nights for a small getaway in the Cotswolds. When we arrived, we were greeted with the warmest of welcomes. Pam told us about breakfast times, where the local pubs were and a variety of other things too. She took us up to our suite (The Lavender... More

Thank you for such a lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your week long stay with us and that you would recommend us to others. It is frustrating when our wifi signal becomes weak, I guess it's just one of the down sides of living in a rural, quiet village and is something that happens occasionally. Since... More

My wife and I have stayed here twice before and every time is so good. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and the breakfast just perfect. Attention to detail all the way. Perfect quiet location for travelling and seeing the beautiful Cotswold villages and castles. Can't recommend it enough.

Folly Farm Cottage is beautiful, peaceful, a quiet country getaway, and an example of country elegance. The rooms, which are amply sized for a hotel, are like a cross between a bedroom in a well kept house and a hotel. Beautiful beds, nice furniture, an elegant bathroom that is spacious. There all sorts of subtle touches that give you the... More

Booked this mini break not knowing Ilmington or Folly Farm. What a fabulous 3 days! Ilmington is a 'chocolate-box' Cotswold village and Pam and Bruce of Folly Farm provided plenty of information to enable us to explore fully.

We arrived rather late at about 8 pm, but our hosts couldn't have been more helpful, especially in getting our heavy bags up to our 2nd floor lovely Honeysuckle Suite. The homemade shortbread in our room with our tea/coffee supplies was fantastic! The bedroom and en suite large bathroom were both very comfortable. Our hosts prepared our breakfasts to order,...
