About Sally Cahill

Having lived in Ilmington for the last 15 years, I can thoroughly recommend the village as a wonderful place to spend time in. I know the area extremely well, love walking my dog in the hills, play golf and tennis and have a clothes boutique in Stow on the Wold.

Sally Cahill purchased this house in 2004

Why Sally Cahill chose Ilmington

Manor Barns is in a unique location within Ilmington. It is completely in the centre of the village, yet only a short walk from the Howard Arms and village shop, and in a quiet circle of houses in what would originally have been farm buildings. It has been completely refurbished this year with a brand new kitchen, bathrooms, carpets and decor to give our guests a relaxed and extremely comfortable stay.

What makes this house unique

A wonderful location for a walking holiday with a myriad of footpaths to follow and close to the Cotswold Way. It would be very easy to go carless for several days with all that the village has to offer.

Quaint, clean, well equipped and comfortable. Exceptionally helpful and friendly hostess

  • 5 of 5

4 Manor Barns is an aesthetically and very well equipped cottage in a picturesque part of the Cotswolds. We felt completely at home in a practical and emotional way having been received in such a warm and welcoming way by Sally.

The area has beautiful walks and is close enough to enchanting villages.

We highly recommend this cottage to all who seek a very special vacation.

Lovely house and very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here so we could visit Stratford & the surrounding area.It is only 8 miles from Stratford and was an easy drive. It was a bonus that the village of Ilmington was so attractive and peaceful and we enjoyed wandering around it and visiting the church and incredibly well stocked village shop. We had an excellent meal at the Howard Arms though it was so popular that they could only give us a table at 6.30pm so book well ahead!

Wonderful weekend in the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic weekend away in the Cotswolds over the Easter weekend with the family. The house was so cosy and homely and had everything we wanted and more. Ilmington was lovely little place and I highly recommend The Howard Arms which is a 5min walk away from the house, food delicious and staff were very friendly. The shop has a great selection for those last minute things you may need. There is so much to see, we went to Chipping Campden, Stow on The Wold, Bourton on The Water, Stratford upon Avon and Moreton in the Marsh. Shipston on Stour has a great gastropub called The George where we had a wonderful sunday lunch. It was good to get out of London for the weekend and into the countryside. I look forward to our next visit to the Cotswolds in the near future.

Country life convenient to Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Sally, we had a lovely stay. So nice to be in the countryside and so convenient to everything. We wish we could stay longer and would definitely stay again but for a week. Wonderfully equipped kitchen and a great home away from home.

Cosy comfortable base

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights over Christmas in 4 manor barns. Although smaller than anticipated for 4 adults it was a good base and bolt hole for Christmas. Loved the village and Howard Arms who made us welcome.
