Bibury

William Morris described Bibury as one of the prettiest villages in England, and few would argue with him. It attracts the crowds, and is thus the stop-off point for many coach tours. It is a honey-pot village made up of rose-covered cottages set behind idyllic kitchen gardens, and all overlook the sleepy River Coln inhabited by swans, trout and duckling. During the C17 Bibury was notorious as a buccaneering centre for gambling and horse racing. Today, it is the first stop-off point for many Japanese visitors, all anxious to get a snap of the iconic Arlington Row. There is a well trod circular walk to Coln St Aldwyns, and for the more adventurous a circular off-road cycling route. See our Walking/Cycling publications for further details.
