The Swan Hotel

The iconic Swan Hotel is located in Bibury village in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds. Bibury is often described as the prettiest village in England and The Swan Hotel can be found at the very centre of it, with a picture-perfect ivy-clad façade and stunning riverside gardens. The private gardens are licensed for the most beautiful Summer ceremonies and also home to a gentle trickling stream that’s popularly used for rubber duck racing! Step inside and the collection of rooms from which to host your special day are equally beautiful and conveniently located together within one wing of the hotel.

Dating back to the 18th Century, the Swan has lots of character and stylish country interiors designed to the finest of details by owner Pamela Horton. The hotel gardens are a real showstopper with a quaint summer house and a gentle trickling steam - ideal for rubber duck races - brilliant, quirky entertainment for your guests!

Inside the hotel, there are two stunning rooms that can be reserved exclusively for your wedding, dependent on your party size or preference. Exclusive use of the whole hotel is also available on certain dates. Signet, the largest room is tastefully decorated with a striking chandelier, open log fireplace and private bar.

Guests need not worry about carriages at midnight as there are 22 lovely bedrooms for your guests to stay the night, including luxurious cottage suites. For the bride and groom, we recommend the four-poster bridal suite in the main house, which has been newly refurbished (winter 2018). Alternatively, stay the night in Whooper garden cottage with its own private hot tub!
