Come and stay with us

Put The Swan’s postcode into your satnav, turn on the music, and just drive. Pass rambling hills, grassy fields, spy a herd of cows or a flock of sheep, and you’re almost here, just a little further. Follow the windy roads through The Cotswolds and reach its heart, nestled in the tranquil village of Bibury right on the River Coln. It would be hard to find a better setting than this, the sort of place where you look at your surroundings and pinch yourself – yes you’re definitely not in a dream – you’re here at The Swan in Bibury.

Our handsome coaching inn is everything you picture it to be. It’s warm, relaxing, comfortable, refreshing, romantic, English, indulging, quintessential, quaint, unique, peaceful, equipped, sumptuous, good food, fine wine, with impeccable service. That just about covers it.


Find yourself relaxing in one of our 22 bedrooms – you won’t uncover any others quite like them anywhere else in The Cotswolds. Whether you’ve chosen one of our 18 bedrooms in the main hotel or one of the four garden cottage suites, no room is the same.

Individual design has been enriched by a collection of sumptuous antique furnishings and contemporary fabrics and wallpapers, which form their unique character. We’ve gone all out to ensure you have a comfortable stay at The Swan, and we hope that the Nespresso coffee machines in the bedrooms and the Molton Brown products in the bathrooms will help with that. Look out over our gardens, the meadows and the river while sinking back into an armchair without a care in the world.
