History Home to one of the most photogenic series of cottages in the Cotswolds, Arlington Row, the humble village of Bibury has become an undying symbol of what country life used to be like in this part of the world. The village's aesthetic qualities have attracted many visitors over the years, including the renowned Arts and Craft 'Movementist' William Morris, who declared it the most beautiful settlement in England! So too has the famous Arlington Row been used as a backdrop for films such as Stardust and Bridget Jones' Diary. The site that the Swan Inn presently occupies has been home to an inn since records began, but the current building was constructed in the 18th century (with further more recent additions), and has been awarded a Grade II listing. The Swan forms part of the Cotswolds Inns and Hotels Group, who own and manage several beautiful hotels and venues across this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including The Hare and Hounds, The Bear of Rodborough, The Manor House Hotel and The Bay Tree Hotel.
