“Lovely for an afternoon”
Review of Bibury Trout Farm

To share another reviewers' opinion on feeding the trout, it is indeed very therapeutic! We decided to come here on a Saturday afternoon as we hadn't visited Bibury before. We went into the trout farm first (handy free parking) and once you pay the entrance fee, your hand is stamped and you can come and go as you please. We had great fun feeding the insatiable trout, and found the surroundings to be really lovely to amble through on a sunny day. There are BBQ areas dotted about along with picnic benches, presumably where you can cook your catch (you can fish there and hire rods, with the help of the staff, which also looked great fun), which seemed a very nice touch. They have a cafe, fish shop (if you'd prefer to simply buy some fresh trout rather than catch it yourself) and a play area for children. A great place to visit for children and adults alike, and a nice pub up the road called the Catherine Wheel which did light pub grub and pizzas etc, all reasonably priced. The famous row of medieval cottages in Bibury is very pretty indeed, and a real draw for tourists. We'd definitely recommend the trout farm, and will probably go ack to try our hand at the fishing!

A lovely couple of hours visiting the trout farm. We had fun feeding the trout, and then fishing for trout. We were very pleased to see so many people had brought food for picnics and were barbecuing their freshly caught fish at the BBQ sites provided. Next time we'll do the same.

Our visitors from Colchester expressed an interest in visiting some Cotswold villages. We started at Bibury and theTrout Farm.What a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours on a beautiful sunny day, feeding thousands of trout (50p per cup for the food), the water turns to turmoil, all
in ponds in various stages of growth. The ducks, duckings, swans , moorhens and coots were
hungry as well. Such a pretty and peaceful place with lovely gardens. You can fish as well, but we just enjoyed the lovely drinks and snacks from the cafe. A gentle stroll afterwards along the river
and to see the cottages completed our visit and we continued on our journey.

At last a convenient coffee place in Bibury. Not expensive and lovely sitting outside looking over the garden. Yes you can take dogs and children too! Hooray.

Cakes in abundance for all those with an appetite or not dieting like me. For extra cash you can go round the gardens or go fishing - what a delight for the children. You must go!
