Bibury was 'discovered' by William Morris who described it 'the most beautiful village in England'. Japanese tourists in particular flock to the village, and this is largely attributed to Emperor Hirohito having stayed in the village on his European tour when he was a Prince during the first half of the 20th Century. He subsequently became a fervent advocate of the area.

The village itself offers a post office, village store, a hotel and pub whilst the nearby towns of Burford and Northleach provide shopping facilities for day-to-day needs. The nearest larger centre is the market town of Cirencester (c. 7 miles) which provides more extensive facilities including a Waitrose and Tesco supermarkets as well as an excellent range of independent traders and bistros.

The commercial centres of Cheltenham and Oxford are also within easy reach with the A40 being about 9 miles to the East whilst Swindon (c. 15 miles) provides access to both the M4 at Junction15 and mainline rail services to London-Paddington in c. 55 minutes.

In addition to the beauty of the village itself, Bibury is also surrounded by some of the most attractive Cotswold countryside. Designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the local area offers an abundance of walks allowing the charm and tranquillity of the Cotswold countryside to be enjoyed.

There are also numerous golf courses at nearby Cirencester, Burford, Naunton Downs and Cheltenham, together with polo at Cirencester Park and National Hunt racing at Cheltenham, Warwick, Bath and Stratford.

Bibury is also ideally placed for sporting facilities with particularly good hunting available via the VWH and the adjoining Cotswold, Heythrop and Duke of Beaufort hounds.

An excellent selection of private and public schooling is available in the locality including nearby Hatherop Castle, or further afield Cothill House, Beaudesert Park, Radley College, Westonbirt and Cheltenham Ladies and Boys Colleges.
