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

We passed this 'attraction' when walking a circular route from Bibury through Coln St Aldwyns with our eldest son last Saturday. There are so many attractive villages in this part of the Cotswolds, and Bibury ranks up there with the best of them. The Catherine Wheel is also a good local pub to add to the overall experience.

The Row of eye-catching houses just like postcard pictures, are very alluring. Located in Bibury which is a gorgeous village. As rightly said one of the most beautiful village in England and it is absolutely true. You can explore the whole of Bibury on foot. Parking was not an issue just besides the river. There are few souvenir shops, Tea... More

Wow what a nice village to visit! It is so quaint and pretty! We had a nice stroll around the village and saw some ducks and swans swimming in the stream. We liked it so much that we put this as a wishlist to live for when we retire.

Let me just say that even the photos do not do this little town justice. It is quite unbelievable that places like this exist. Arlington row is such a quaint little row of old stone houses with smoke coming out of the little chimneys. The roads are clean, the people are wonderful, the little trout farm is great, the ducks...

Saw a picture of Arlington View on a card and had to see it for ourselves. The cottages were originally used to dry wool before being turned into workers cottages. Lovely weekend.

Arlington row is located in a small village in the Cotswolds called Bibury, which shot to fame due to it featuring on the inside cover of all United Kingdom passports. The Arlington row is a series of cottages which were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store and subsequently converted into a row of cottages for weavers in the... More

Like stepping into a picture book - lovely. The rest of Bibury is pleasant to wander around as well. As is the case with most English villages, parking can be challenging.

Understandably one of the most photographed rows of cottages in the UK! I loved the roof shingles and other original features.
