Shipston on Stour,
This 400-year-old Cotswold stone former coaching inn has been totally refurbished and the new bedrooms are all beautifully presented. The Howard Arms enjoys a prominent position in the heart of the pretty village of Ilmington. The bar/restaurant has been sympathetically restored and many original features have been retained. Real fires burn bright, and there is a great range of local ales along with an award-winning restaurant.
