Glad that we spare time here. Nice lovely walk along the river and enjoy with duckling and swan who also enjoy themselves!

Bibury is too small, there is nothing special (only the trout farm, if you are interested, good with kids imo). But, on the other way, if you plan some longer trip around Bibury, it is very nice then.

Looks more like a wide creek than a river, but it is probably defined by length, not width, as in the US. Bibury developed along it, and the medieval weavers during the boom in the wool trade certainly needed it. Now the trout farm (right...More

Even though the River Coln flows lazily through the village of Bibury, it's still part of the history and culture. Villages settled around rivers for water, transportation, and cleaning. Though I didn't visit it, there is a trout farm in Bibury. I did have delicious...More

River runs through many Cotswold villages. Exceptionally clean and plenty wildlife to see. Worth a walk along its banks.
