Ilmington is one of the top ten best places to live
ILMINGTON has made it into the top ten places to live in the Midlands according to a national newspaper.
With an average house price of £299,950 and rental standing at £750 a month plus glorious Cotswolds architecture and rolling hills and countryside, The Sunday Times Best Places to Live has Ilmington right up there with the best including Uppingham in Rutland which is the overall regional winner.
Stratford District Councillor Edward Fitter, (Cons, Quinton) said: "I’m delighted that Ilmington is one of the top ten best places to live in the Midlands and it is well deserved.
The spirit in Ilmington is really special. With it’s community shop and cafe, fantastic sport facilities and of course it’s Morris dancing. I’d also like to thank residents for taking great care of each other during this difficult time.
The village itself is beautiful. Situated in the Cotswolds, it is a lovey place with plenty of character. I’m very proud to represent Ilmington on Stratford-on-Avon District Council."
