England’s Cotswolds: Quaint Beauty In Bibury Village

0

If you’ve ever spent time in England and haven’t ventured into the beautiful area called the Cotswold’s, you don’t really know what you’re missing. It is located in southwestern England and is pure beauty, an area filled with village after village. One of the quaintest and cutest villages is Bibury, where it is said that verdant meadows abut ancient stone cottages with steep pitched roofs.

The River Coln, which bisects the village, teems with trout, but the most scenic area is Arlington Row, a lane of sepia-hued cottages built in the 17th century to house weavers from the nearby Arlington Mill.  The village was once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds’. The village centre clusters around a square near St. Mary’s, a Saxon church. Some of the Saxon remains inside the church are replicas as the originals are housed in the British Museum.

A trivial point for those interested in such things: Bibury has provided the backdrop for blockbuster films including Stardust and Bridget Jones’s Diary.

Things To Do:

Bibury Trout Farm and Restaurant: Here, you can catch your own trout and of course, eat it on site.

Arlington Mill Museum: Strolling alongside the river watching the trout in their live habitat and visiting Arlington Row.

Bibury Court Hotel: Magnificent Jacobean mansion with friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Also try the Swan Hotel and Trout Farm Restaurant.

Hiking: Away from the sightseeing crowds in Bibury, a delightful walk through woodland and meadow rich in wildlife, across a Roman road and past a hidden dewpond.
