Castle Combe

Castle Combe in the Cotswolds, is a quintessential English village and has often been referred to as the ‘prettiest village in England’.

It’s much favoured for its cinematic beauty by film makers with scenes from War Horse, Stardust, the 1967 film version of Doctor Doolittle and The Wolf Man, being among the films that were shot here.

In the village St. Andrew’s Church houses one of the few medieval clocks still in use in England, and the village is centred on the 14th century market cross and water pump. There are also many beautiful pubs, restaurants and craft shops.

Lacock Abbey and village are located just seven miles from Castle Combe. Lacock, like Castle Combe, has regularly featured in period TV and film productions, including Pride and Prejudice and Emma, and is a good place to shop or enjoy a meal.

Among the attractions is the 19th century Fox Talbot Photographic Museum. Westonbirt, The National Arboretum, Chippenham Museum and Heritage Centre, River Barn, a magical garden located near Malmesbury and American Museum in Britain are among the other attractions within a 10 mile radius of the village. The major historical attractions of Stonehenge, Avebury and the Wiltshire White Horse are also just a short drive away.

The beautiful Cotswolds countryside is popular among walkers and hikers, and a range of other activities, including ballooning, fishing, cycling and horseback riding, are available within the region. Golf can also be played locally. Those who aren''t feeling energetic can simply spend time driving from one beautiful village to the next through enchanting countryside, or explore the sites of Bristol and Bath.

Castle Combe Circuit, a racing track and rally course located on a disused RAF airfield on the edge of the village, is one of its most popular attractions.

For accommodation see holiday cottages in Castle Combe and take the opportunity to experience one of Britain''s most beautiful villages for yourself.

    This charming 16th century cottage hides a contemporary interior, that complements the original beams and inglenook fireplace. Located down a tranquil private country lane, Well Cottage is perfect for that romantic retreat or family break.
    The beamed living room has large comfortable sofas, mountains of cushions to snuggle down in front of the large wood burning stove in original stone inglenook fireplace. It is the perfect place to relax of an evening cosy and warm, to watch the flat screen TV, or enjoy a quiet morning coffee.
    The country kitchen with its beams, stone floor and exposed brick is ideal for enjoying a leisurely breakfast at the farmhouse table. Or a convivial evening meal with family discussing the events of the day, and planning for tomorrow.
    Take the traditional narrow, turning stairs to the first floor, where you will find the lovely peaceful bedrooms. Both have iron bedsteads in keeping with the character of the cottage, and both have beams and sloping ceilings. Well-appointed with generous duvets, fluffy pillows and immaculate linen they are just what the doctor ordered for a good night sleep.
    Relax in the large enclosed garden with its original covered well, and soak up the sun, while enjoying a well-deserved drink at the end of the day. Or for walking enthusiasts, take the footpath from the door to the heart of Castle Combe with its typical honey coloured Cotswolds houses. Golf and horse riding nearby, and there is a country hotel for bar and meals within 2 to 3 minute walk. Shop ½ mile.
