A trip to the charming Cotswolds village of Bibury is not complete until you have crossed over the River Coln and taken in the most famous row of cottages in the whole of the Cotswolds.

From the village you are within easy reach of the family-friendly Bibury Trout Farm where visitors are invited to feed the trout as you wander around the many beautifully laid out ponds. Younger guests will take great delight in the lovely play area as well as honing their netting skills during a spot of trout fishing. Rods and nets are all available free of charge and you can even hire your own bbq on which you can grill your catch of the day. A quick stop in the café and farm shop are a must before you head off back to your nearby holiday cottage for the evening.
During your stay in a holiday cottage in Bibury an educational trip to Chedworth Roman Villa is surprisingly good fun.

Whilst in Bibury be sure to make time for a paddle in the river, enjoy spotting wildlife at the Wildfowl Reserve and most definitely savour a lazy pint in one of the local pubs and remember your walking boots as Bibury is the gateway to many incredible countryside walks.

At the end of every day you can retire back to your Cotswold holiday cottage where you can put your feet up as you settle onto the sofa for a relaxing evening in your home from home.
