Hardly a surprise as it is such a photogenic spot. I think Bibury should consider some sort of marked route so that visitors are led on a tour of the wider village - will reduce pressure on main attractions.

....a visit to admire these quaint cottages is a must. That's not to say though, that there aren't lots and lots of lovely Cotswold villages to visit. The golden stone cottages / houses of the Cotswolds are just so beautiful. Villages and towns with so much to offer.

Bibury is famous for its medieval cottages know as Arlington Row. Though they were once built in the 13th century, they were rebuilt in the 17th century as weavers cottages. Though the cottages are very quaint and quintessential of the 'Cotswold' style of property, that is pretty much all that Bibury offers. The majority of visitors are oriental tourists, mostly...

This little village in its serene valley is a real treat. I hadn't heard of it prior to my first trip to the Cotswolds - it was recommended to my wife with a warning that it was quite busy. And even on a grey, windy, cold day in March, there was nowhere to park on our first pass through. On... More

Wasn't that excited about visiting the Cotswold, how wrong was I. One of the highlights of our 10 week driving holiday around Europe. Never realized England was so beautiful green tree lined lane ways, these cottages were so picturesque,the Ducks,the water.We went early in the morning and missed most of the tour busses it wouldn't be as enjoyable when crowded...

Probably one of the most photographed scenes in the Cotswolds. It has become slightly notorious of late for the addition of a yellow car outside one of the cottages. It was there first thing when we visited, but had disappeard by lunchtime! You can only walk along the front of the cottages, but it is in a lovely location.

Definitely a beautiful and fascinating row of Cotswold cottages and visited as part of a stroll around Bibury it's definitely worth a few minutes. It's picturesque and quaint but Bibury has much more to offer in terms of great architecture and ambiance. Stroll across The Rack where cloth was once dried, visit he trout farm and sample their wares. The... More

beautiful row of cottages, in a lovely quiet part of the village. Woodland walks, and quiet babbling small brook with w few escaped trout to see. Parking in road and toilets available although make sure you have money because they are not free.

After hearing that this was probably the most photographed street in Britain, My family just had to go there. Unfortunately by the time we got there it was late and it was getting dark fast. In our haste we neglected to see a sign that said "Private" and though we were quiet, pretty soon a grumpy man came up to... More
