Visited with my elderly mum, my 2nd visit - so good had to come back twice. Lovely old cottages adorned with hanging baskets. Very quaint and full of history. Visited the lovely little church . A village not to be missed .

If you are taking the train from Bristol Meads get off at Chippenham and take the bus to Castle combe village.
The bus will drop you to the village center by the church.
Visit the church first as it has useful touristy stuff like fridge magnets, post cards and walking tour pamplets for a nominal cost.
The other great thing about the church is the local history and remarkable architecture and breathtaking stainglass windows.
The village was the filming location for Dr Doolittle and The War horse.
The back of the churchyard pathway leads up to the backlane leading up to a beautiful open meadow with towering trees overlooking the ivy covered Manor House.The Manor house has a very elegant parlor and tearooms with fabulous views and is also a hotel.
From the Manor house are stone steps leading up to some quaint gardens, laid beautifuly on the gentle hill rising above the Manor.
You can amble along the different walking trails and pathways, and stop by the wayside "honesty boxes" to enjoy a bite from local ladies who whip up some great goodies and handmade stuff and you could take what you want and leave the money in the honesty boxes for your purchase.
There is a lovely restaurant in the village center offering some great local fare. It has outdoor seating with a great view of the main street.
Please be mindful that the village is home to very friendly people, but please respect their privacy and space too.
The last bus from the village leaves at 5 pm so ensure you are at the village center where the bus stop is.
Carry water and wear comfortable shoes and check the weather before you sally forth.
Be safe and enjoy the lovely village.

What a beautiful village with an array of historic buildings. This village should not be missed when visiting Wiltshire.

Castle Combe has been called 'The Prettiest Village in England', with visitors having come to enjoy its charms for at least a century. The small street leading from the Market Cross down to the Brook is very picturesque.

Parking can be a bit of a problem, especially during the holiday season!

Lovely little village. We were wanting to visit after seeing photos online and were not disappointed. A beautiful place, take advantage of the free car park at the top of the village before walking down. Castle Coombe is very small so I would recommend visiting early in the morning or later in the day as it doesn't take long unless you stop to eat or drink somewhere. One negative were the toilets they were disgusting considering how beatiful the village itself is.

Lovely little village. Nothing to do but a lovely walk and we had a lovely afternoon tea picnic box. Unfortunately our day was ruined by the disgusting toilets, bins not being emptied and people being allowed to park on double yellow lines and going more than 20mph! To top it off.... We were slapped with a parking ticket in the free car park. There were about 29 cars that got a ticket who were parked safely and legally but interestingly no one git a ticket on the double yellows. We came on Bank holiday Monday, never been before. We looked for a sign about rules but couldn't find one! We eventually found one but it had been knocked around. Shame... Won't be visiting again.

The owner of a hotel we were staying at told us of this gorgeous place to visit. So glad we did. The car park is at top of the village, it is a slight downhill to village. You won't be disappointed, it is a quintessential English village. Gorgeous stone, houses and river. Walk along the village to a little bridge , over bridge is a walk through trees to Ford. If you want a good leg stretch or dog walk, highly recommended.

This is a lovely spacious village with well kept village green and pond. Assortment of Georgian houses - some very 'lord of the manor' situated overlooking the village green. Well worth a visit but car parking may be a problem so try to visit early in the day or a weekday.

A very pretty little town not much to do but some lovely pictures to be taken, parking in the free car park at the top of the hill make sure you park in a bay or face a ticket from the ticket warden

My husband and I needed a couple of days away and fortunately happened upon the The Castle Inn in Castle Combe. What a wonderful, friendly hotel!!!! We had a wonderful room with a 4-poster bed and a bathroom big enough to hold a party in! Not cheap, it's true, but well worth every single penny. Every single member of staff whom we had the good fortune to meet was so pleasant, friendly and helpful - nothing was truly too much trouble. The hotel itself is so very interesting, with lots of quirky little corners to sit and relax and the village, of course, is delightful! There is a very comprehensive menu and a great wine list! We would heartily recommend!!!!!!
