Bibury is a fine little village. There's a combined shop/post office, a tea room, a handful of hotels/B&Bs, a church, the trout farm, and this river. If the weather is nice this is a lovely place for a picnic. But I wouldn't go out of...More

This river run through the Arlington row, quiet and calm clear water with lots of duck, spotted some fishes as well. It’s lovely sitting by the river and watch this sleepy old village.

An excellent walk of 6 miles from Bibury to Coln St Alwyn. Return journey by the river , with pleasant views. Bibury is very attractive with river Coln running along side

There'a a lovely 4 mile circular walk starting in the centre of Bibury which goes past the church, Arlington Row and other building not seen by most of the tourists. Crosses through woods, fields, streams and a short road stretch. Can by quite muddy in...More
