While we were visiting Abbey Home Farm, we also dropped in for a look at nearby Bibury, a gorgeous small village in the Cotswolds, which claims to be home to the most photographed view in Britain.  And here it is:

This is Arlington Row, first built in 1380, but converted into weavers cottages in the 17th century, and now owned by the National Trust.

Modern Bibury attracts tour buses and is unfortunately dominated by a trout farm (picturesque as that trout farm may be in this setting!), which is a visitor ‘attraction’.  However, we did manage a lovely wander round the village, a couple of purchases in the gift shop and a good veggie lunch in garden of the Catherine Wheel pub.  All that gorgeous Cotswold stone, a babbling brook and a couple of black swans, all make Bibury well worth the visit.
