Property Information

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.

Map & Local Information

 Bibury is a about as classic and attractive Cotswold village that you could wish for. Historicvally 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 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!
