Overlooking the babbling river that runs through the pretty village, The Swan at Bibury stays true to the quintessential charm of the Cotswolds, with its honey-coloured stone façade, tranquil setting and cosy interiors.

Formerly an old coaching inn, the hotel takes original elements of its bygone days and effortlessly blends them with contemporary furnishings and wonderful home comforts that are guaranteed to leave a smile on your face. Cosy log fires crackle away in the bar and brasserie while the private hot tub bubbles at Whooper Garden Cottage.

As much love and attention has gone into creating the gardens here as it has with the bedrooms. This really is a place where you can switch off from the outside world and slip into somewhere more relaxing.

The 22 bedrooms have a certain country house elegance that make you want to linger longer. Timeless furniture mingles among romantic colour palettes, adding a real warmth to the calming atmosphere. Imagine waking up to the gentle flow of the river and the most heavenly scenery before moseying on down to the Swan Brasserie for a delicious Cotswold breakfast. Defining chic urbanity with its Farrow and Ball blue wood panelling, and elegant wallpaper, the Brasserie flows seamlessly down to the light oak dining tables and feature log wall. We couldn’t imagine a more perfect backdrop for dining on dishes that fuse British cooking with European flavours.

The Swan Bar is cool and contemporary yet retains a traditional country bar feel. Comfy armchairs are scattered throughout and the outdoor terrace invites you to relax with afternoon tea in the summer months.
