Bibury was described by the 19th Century artist and designer William Morris as “The most beautiful village in England”.
In the centre of Bibury village and on the banks of the River Coln is the world famous Arlington Row. These are 17th Century weavers’ cottages which are such an iconic example of Cotswold cottages that they now feature on the UK Passport!
Cotswolds cottages such as Bibury’s Arlington Row pictured above are typical of their kind. Throughout the Cotswolds cottage industries once thrived. Cotswolds cottages are typically built from locally quarried limestone thereby blending perfectly with the Cotswolds landscape. Bibury Village is such a place. Small cottages abound, alongside period manor houses and Bibury’s ancient Church.
Many Cotswolds cottages are nowadays used as self-catering holiday accommodation. Bibury Holiday Cottages are a prime example of this providing perfect self-catering accommodation for the discerning visitor to Bibury.
