Bibury is a charming little village in the English countryside of Cotswold.  Bibury village has been featured at various places, particulary famous as one of the most beautiful village in the England. It has been also modelled in the Mini- Europe minitaure park at Atomimum in Brussels.

When you arrive at Bibury, the very first thought that struck you is are you watching a painting!! Believe me the setting of this place just takes you back in the 17th-18th century, because that era is still very intact in this place. With it’s 17th century weavers cottage, a walking bridge on the top of river and the meadow setting takes away your breath.

It is a small village that can be seen by walking all around it. While you are visiting this place, there are some must do/see things like

Walk to Arlington Row – a row of weavers cottages built of local stone next to the River. It is often reffered as one of the most photographed cottage row in the country. Infact it was in news recently that beauty of the arlington row has been bloomed by a yellow car, which still stands there 🙂 For a bit of history these cottages were actually built as a monastic wool store in 1380s and later converted into weavers’ cottages later.

Walk around River Coln and find a spot for a nice picnic. Do not forget to carry duck food.

Bibury Trout Farm- Love fishing and fancy catching live trout to take back home. This is the place. There is entry of around £4 pound to get on to the farm.

Church of St Mary – I did not visit the church, and I am actually wondering how did I miss it. But there is always a next time 🙂

Go to a Tea Room , sit back, relax and enjoy Bibury.

    • Exactly Crystal, It was such a good day for a walk. Lovely, quaint and elegant in it;s own way. I was telling Ash that we should buy a retirement home at such a place 🙂 When we get old, we will get up, have tea, gardening, go for a walk and stay calmly 🙂 xx

  4. What a gorgeous village Aanchal – the pretty cottages are so charming! Just like something out of a painting as you say! A walk round followed by a nice cup of tea in the tea rooms sounds a lovely way to spend the day. Beautiful photos of your visit too 🙂
