| Events in Castle Combe | 10 Places to Stay

Castle Combe is a small village in Wiltshire, England, with a population of about 350. It has been called, for good reason, the 'prettiest village in England'. The village houses are all typical of the Cotswold area being constructed with thick stone walls and with roofs of stone tiles. These properties are listed as ancient monuments. Other fine buildings include the medieval church and a fourteenth century Market Cross. It has also been used as a location for the films and television series. The site of the castle is above today's village, although little other than earthworks now survive. It was once an ancient hill fort which was subsequently occupied by the Romans. Later, the Normans built a castle on the site of the old fort. Castle Combe is situated on the southern-most edge of the Cotswolds and is close to many sites of historical interest such as Avebury, Stonehenge and the Wiltshire White Horses. Nearby are the stately homes and gardens of Bowood House, Longleat and Stourhead. The village is near the town of Chippenham and is approximately 12 miles from the Georgian city of Bath. Castle Combe is the home of Castle Combe Motor Racing Circuit. Plenty of accommodation is available in and around the village including the 4-star, fourteenth century Manor House Hotel which has 48 rooms and 365 acres of gardens.
