Bibury is a charming, typically Cotswold, village just a short drive from "The Capital of the Cotswolds", Cirencester. Bibury was once described by William Morris (1834-96) as "the most beautiful village in England".

Attractions in Bibury include Arlington Row, a row of weavers cottages built of local stone next to the River Coln, Arlington Mill, the Bibury Trout Farm and the Saxon Church, the Church of St Mary. The north Chancel wall of the Church is home to a stained glass window which was designed in 1927 by Karl Parsons and was featured in the 1992 Christmas stamp set issued by the Royal Mail.

The River Coln flows through Bibury sandwiched between the main village street and an expanse of boggy water meadow known as Rack Isle. With Arlington Row as a backdrop, it makes one of the most picturesque scenes you will find in the Cotswolds.
