Wedding day preparation.
I joined Jim and his groomsmen at the New Inn Bibry, This is a favorite night before the wedding at Cripps Barn hotel and as part of the same group often the natural choice.
The New Inn is a short drive to Cripps and they are well set up for couples staying the night before and getting ready for their wedding day.
Things to do in the Bibury area
On this page of the Bibury web site, you will find details of places of interest to visit in Bibury.
Bibury is a popular Cotswolds’ visitor attraction that can become very busy on a sunny summer afternoon, and even attracts visitors on the coldest winter day.
Whilst in Bibury you really must visit the Arlington Row of weaver’s cottages, the Bibury Trout Farm and Arlington Mill, though the latter is now a private dwelling so only an external viewing is possible. Also take a short walk from Bibury village centre to the Church of St. Mary
A lazy summer afternoon wandering among the honey coloured Costwold stone buildings is as close as you can get to the perfect Cotswold experience.
Further afield you will find the likes of Blenheim Palace, Cotswold Water Park and Westonbirt Arboretum
