Stay where the film stars visit, east of Cirencester.
The village of Bibury, east of Cirencester, is literally picture perfect; it has been used for various film and TV productions and was described by William Morris as 'the most beautiful village in England'. One of the main attractions is Arlington Row, originally built in 1380 as a monastic wool store and converted in the 17th century into a row of Weaver's cottages. These distinctively English cottages are fronted by 'Rack Isle', a little nature reserve surrounded by crystal clear rivers and streams. Bibury has a 17th century mill building, and just next to it a working trout farm set in a pretty water garden. Many of the quaint Cotswold cottages in Bibury, including Arlington Row, are owned by the National Trust and protected by strict building regulations.
