Seventeenth-century weavers' cottages and water meadow set in the Cotswold village of Bibury

This Gloucestershire beauty spot is a great place to visit whatever you're looking for.

For a bit of history, take a stroll down the picturesque Arlington Row. These cottages were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store and converted into weavers' cottages in the 17th century.

If it's wildlife you're after then head opposite to The Rack Isle, so called because it used to be where wool was hung on racks to dry after it had been washed in Arlington Row. This water meadow now provides an important habitat for water-loving plants and birds; look out for water voles, marsh orchid, flag iris, and marsh marigold.
