Bibury is not looking its best this Summer due to the work being undertaken to install "fibre optic" which has caused great disruption to Bibury and especially to Bibury Holiday Cottages as they were digging up the footpath which is part of our drive for 2 weeks, which caused us great difficulty with our guests. We were not informed of the work commencing or finishing and we have just had to live with it. What I don't understand is that Bibury is a great tourist attraction and they chose the middle of the Season to dig up the footpaths etc., they did the outlying areas during the early part of the year, who don't get the volume of visitors. Anyway enough of the moans. We here at Bibury Holiday Cottages have had a great season and again some lovely guests who really appreciate Bibury village and the surrounding area of The Cotswolds, its alway interesting to hear where guests wish to visit be it the stately homes, gardens, Bath, Oxford etc., or many just want to see the quaint Cotswold villages, which remain unchanged over the decades. The International Sheep Dog trials are coming to Stowell Lodge in Sept. My brother who lives in the Yorkshire Dales runs sheep dogs, so he will be here to enjoy the event as I am sure many other people will. Its a very interesting day out. One man and his dog in The Cotswolds and very close to Bibury Holiday Cottages. The weather hasn't been its best since mid-July so hopefully it will improve and we will be able to enjoy our lovely gardens at Bibury Holiday Cottages.
