Tidmington is a tiny hamlet in a long, detached part of Worcestershire, locally situate in the south-west parts of Warwickshire (and unaffected by the Counties (Detached Parts) Act 1844).

The hamlet sits beside the Warwickshire Stour immediately south of Shipston-on-Stour, which is in the same detached part. It is a scattered place, with a few farms and cottages close to the bridge (which crosses into Warwickshire) in the south and a few hundred yards to the north stand Tidmington House, a fine Cotswold-fringe mansion with gardens running down to the river, and adjacent buildings.

In spite of the size of the place, Tidmington has a delightful church with an interesting roofed tower. It stands off the road, concealed by trees and unknown to the casual passer-by.
