Property Information

Dating back to the Doomsday Book, Arlington Mill is both historic and iconic and for the first time ever - you can stay in this outstanding property! Set in the heart of Bibury and with the original wheels and old machinery visually preserved but not working, guests will feel surrounded by a unique atmosphere that is rare to experience. Once upon a time this is where corn from around the Cotswolds was brought and milled for consumption - it's real history! Today, this vast building set across four floors offers wonderful self catering accommodation for up 13 guests. There are two living rooms, each enormous, a smart kitchen and then across the floors are five bedrooms and five bathrooms. It's immaculate in presentation and very clean and we feel an ideal place for groups to get together and relax completely.
Within, literally, 2 mins walk are two pubs - each serving food so it couldn't be better for a completely relaxed weekend or holiday. The kids will love it, as the Bibury Trout Farm is next door across the river from where you can catch a fish within about 1 min of fishing! The trout farm has a decent general shop that you will find very convenient during your stay.
For many reasons, this is an excellent choice for families or for friends, and for many reasons we think that you will return once you have stayed. We love it!

Outside safety

The rear of the property has an enclosed (but not lockable) terrace.  Please note that the mill stream (leat) is deep and often fast flowing through an underwater sluice and therefore it is dangerous for pets, children and adults to approach the leat or to walk on the wall next to the leat.  Please keep your family away from the water. 

Children Welcome. Permanent wooden cot supplied (not a travel cot), 1 high chair. 2 well behaved dogs allowed. Wifi available and included but this is a rural village set in a valley so wifi can be unreliable. 

The Mill has Wi-Fi via the modem in the downstairs living room. Due to the thick stone walls, the wireless signal is not consistent through the house, however there is a booster on the first floor so you should have some signal through the house.

The house has a telephone for incoming calls only.

Ample Parking. *The extra beds are charged at £75 each, per weekend or per week.

Security deposit of £500.00 is required 1 week prior to arrival.

 


Map & Local Information

Arlington Mill is one of the iconic buildings in the village of Bibury. It sits overlooking the Trout Farm (more below) to one side and the Arlington Row in the distance. Bibury is a about as classic and attractive Cotswold village that you could wish for, relatively untouched and beautifully presented. Historically significant thanks mainly due to its position on the river that weaves through the village, it has mentions in the Doomsday Book with specifically Arlington Row one of the most renowned locations in the Cotswolds. These ancient cottages (still lived in today and owned by the National Trust) were once inhabited by workers from Arlington Mill. History surrounds you and so too do a selection of stunning walks.

There is a Trout farm in the village which is a popular day trip and particularly appealing for children who can fish and usually catch easily a trout (which you can buy for a meal!) plus a country museum in the old Arlington Mill. There are two good pubs in Bibury the welcoming local pub called The Catherine Wheel and The Swan which is on the river. If you are in the village on Boxing Day they have their legendary Duck Races!

Cirencester is about 12 mins drive away where there are plenty of shops, cafes and things to do. Burford is similarly nearby, while other places of note include Lechlade is a short drive away, with its boating on the River Thames. There is a water sports park at South Cerney and golf, riding and tennis are all available close by.
Picturesque villages abound with many 'Olde Worlde' pubs and restaurants nestling in valleys.

This is the kind of location you remember as a child simply because so little has changed and because much of the charm remains. Beautiful!
