Inside UK's 'most beautiful village' which visitors blast as BORING & swarming with tourists who will 'trample you' | The Sun

DISAPPOINTED visitors have slammed the UK's 'most beautiful village,' saying it's not worth the fuss.

The picture-perfect Cotswold village of Bibury is a popular getaway destination – but not everyone is a fan.

For years, the image of the Cotswold gem was a watermark on the inside cover of a British passport.

But now the place has begun to feel over-run.

Thousands of tourists flock to the Gloucestershire village to see the iconic 14th century houses, popular pubs and countryside walks – but it's not necessarily a good thing.

One critic grumbled: "The picture on Tripadvisor is literally the only thing to see in Bibury. A couple touristy photos and you can get going before getting trampled by other tourists."

Another described the village as "absolutely packed," adding "there is nowhere to park."

The village has been overwhelmed by swarms of visitors and allegedly left in poor condition, leaving many disappointed.

One Tripadvisor review read: "It is sad to see how a popular place such as Bibury is totally forgotten by the authorities or even locals as a small effort would change it immensly.

"All I saw around me during our visit there was weed, shrubs, nettles and rubbish."

Another added: "You would have thought with all the profits from tourists that the weeds would be managed and banks maintained."

This group of visitors criticised the gradually deteriorating conditions of Bibury after being left unimpressed.

Despite the village recently being named as one of the country's best romantic getaways by Country Living, many were disappointed by what they discovered when visiting.

One critic took to Tripadvisor to complain, saying: "What happened to Bibury. Used to be a regular for a walk and then stop for some tea and cake.

"Now it just seems like it's been let go."

It seems not everyone falls under the charm of this chocolate-box village.

BirminghamLive reported that Paul Pearson wrote on Google: "Don't waste your time going here – it's a couple of old houses that aren't really great to look at."

Another harsh reviewer wrote: "It's just a row of seven old houses on a hill by a river….and not much else. Not too sure what all the fuss is about."

Last year, The Sun wrote about Bibury's alluring charm – coupled with hordes of tourists who peer into windows & have picnics in residents' gardens.
