    “Only negative is that there should be a rail for Bath and shower.”

    One of the best equipped cottage and the furniture and bedding is good quality.

The property

Set in the heart of the perfectly typical Cotswolds' village of Bibury Gable Cottage is a very popular holiday cottage that has seen guests returning for, literally, years and years.

Bibury is as quintessential English village you could imagine, one described by the original Cotswolds font of knowledge William Morris as `the most beautiful village in England'.

We agree and staying in this cottage puts you in the heart of the village.

One of a pair of cottages, Gable Cottage is furnished and equipped to a high standard and is warm, welcoming and a good size for four, it has an attractive open plan living space downstairs where light floods in from its double aspect.

Upstairs are the two bedrooms, equally a good size and similarly attractive.

These are an excellent choice for people who wish to stay (and enjoy!) one of the finest villages in the region.

Bibury boasts England's oldest inhabited houses at Arlington Row (NT), an ancient church, a lovely old watermill and museum, and a trout farm open for fishing.

The location is also a very good spot if you're coming to a wedding at Cripps Barn, which is about 2 miles away.

About the location


Burford 9 miles; Bourton-on-the-Water 10 miles.

William Morris called Bibury ‘the most beautiful village in England” and today it is world famous as a village which best epitomises the English rural scene. At its centre is an outstanding Saxon church. So important is the village architecturally that the National Trust is closely involved in its preservation - Arlington Row, a row of weavers cottages was restored by the Trust in the 1970s and its distinctive roofline and gables are one of the most photographed scenes in the Cotswolds. The village has a selection of shops, pubs and tea rooms and a wider range of amenities are available in the nearby market town of Burford “Gateway to the Cotswolds”.
