Picturesque Castle Combe


CC Village 4

Castle Combe in Wiltshire is noted as being one of the most picturesque villages in the Cotswolds, if not in all England.   It was famously used as a film location for the 2011 movie War Horse.  

Its medieval market cross, and local stone house give it a yesteryear charm, and the church has an exhibit based on the War Horse experience.  The river runs down one side of the village, and the Cotswolds provides a wonderful backdrop.

The Castle Combe in and its neighbour The White Heart provide good food, and a place to have a cuppa and to take in the pleasant village surroundings.  Though it is a bit of a hilly walk, Castle Combe provides discoveries of architecture and nature for those willing to seek them out.  Several of the small businesses and residents in the village centre offer local produce, jams, and honey for sale.
