The West Country region

Located on the southern edge of the Cotswolds, Castle Combe is known as one of the most beautiful villages in England. The village is famous as a location for feature films including "Stardust", "Wolfman", and "War Horse". Bath Spa - the only natural hot mineral Springs in England is nearby and is a fabulous place to relax in.

The stunning countryside surrounding the Stables Cottage is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is therefore protected from future development. Although set in a rural location the city of London is only one and a half hours drive away and Bath and Bristol city center's only twenty minutes drive away.

The main sightseeing attractions of the south west, such as Longleat, Stonehenge, Bath, Bristol,Cirencester, Cheltenham and Oxford, are easily accessible by car.

The National Trust village of Lacock is nearby and is very popular for families to visit as Harry Potter was filmed here.

Badminton House, the family seat of the Duke of Beaufort is 10 minutes' drive from the Stables Cottage. Famous for the Badminton Horse Trials (the biggest equestrian event held in Great Britain) it attracts thousands of visitors from all around the world each year.

Bath Spa, the only natural hot water thermal springs in England, are just 30 minutes away by car. The Bath Festival is an international cultural event and attracts guest performers from all over the world.

At Castle Combe the race circuit has thrilling car racing events throughout the year. Longleat safari park is just a 40 minute drive away and provides a wonderful day out for all the family. A Championship golf course is 10 minutes' drive from the cottage and for those wishing to 'practise their swing' there is a golf driving range in the next village.
