To see the 'Prettiest Village in England', reserve a Castle Combe hotel that will let you explore this well-preserved gem of a town in Wiltshire. With a small collection of Cotswold houses and a population of just over 300, Castle Combe represents the ultimate rural getaway in England.
Given its relatively remote location, Castle Combe has a number of natural outings to offer visitors as well. The rolling meadows and thick forests around the town can be perfect for days out hiking or a simple picnic in the sun.
Though Castle Combe has a long and rich history, it never experienced the population growth of other rural towns. Set along the Bybrook River, Castle Combe retains much of the charm of yesteryear.
The 14th-century Manor House is still a fixture in the city, as is St Andrew's Church, where guests will find Castle Combe Clock, likely built sometime in the 15th century.
Castle Combe also has a number of sights and attractions worth visiting outside the centre, including Castle Combe Circuit, a racing venue. Additionally, historic sites such as Stonehenge and the town of Bath lie just a short journey away.
