I am no city girl, having lived in Dubai for almost 7 years now with all its glitz and glamour, I think I’ve had enough of the city life and would always ALWAYS prefer a countryside or a beach over a city whenever I travel. So when I went for a quick trip to London, the first thing that I did was to go on a day trip to its countryside and what better way to start this tour than visiting the quaint and charming little Cotswold town of Bibury.
I went there during November when it was freezing, I know it wasn’t the ideal time to visit the countryside but even then I was mesmerized by its charm. Visiting during the winter also increases your chances of having the village to yourself without a lot of tourists blocking your view. All my city stress went away as soon as I took the first breathe of fresh air that a countryside villages always have.
I loooOOOVED the Arlington Row which is a row of weavers stone cottages next to River Coln. It was a picture perfect scene, it would’ve been better if I went there during summer when the whole place will be covered in green.
My photos can’t do justice to the beauty of the place but to just give you an idea, Bibury was described by William Morris (English writer and artist in the 18th century) as the most beautiful village in England. I definitely agree.
This should definitely be in your bucket list – it’s the Classic English village with all its charm and history that everyone must see. My kind of place.
