Eats & Explores: The Howard Arms, Ilmington

Last month (June), hubby and I visited the north Cotswolds for part one of our ‘Babymoon’, and on our second night there we stayed at The Howard Arms.

We’re in June, which you may know (if you read the nonsense I write here or follow me on Instagram, hi if you do! ๐Ÿ‘‹), means that The Bean, aka the tiny human I’m currently growing, is officially due NEXT MONTH. (๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜…) How did that happen!? Anyway because I don’t like to do things in…
