“The Prettiest Village in England”

Welcome to Castle Combe, a charming, picturesque town tucked away in Wiltshire, England, known for its tranquil atmosphere and old stone buildings.

With buildings still left from the Medieval Times, a walk through Castle Combe is like stepping back in time.There is a special place in my heart for old stone and countryside towns, and Castle Combe seems like the ideal place to let go of the world and just sink into the past.

The village website tells us:

The village houses are all of typical Cotswold type, constructed in stone with thick walls and roofs made from split natural stone tiles. The properties are many hundreds of years old and are listed as ancient monuments. Strict rules apply to preserve the beauty and character of Castle Combe for later generations to admire.

Like a trip to Old Quebec City….
But older!

    Ah no, you need to go to Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic – a perfectly preserved 16th cent town, Unesco World Heritage site :-).

    Yes – Castle Combe is very lovely and your photo does it justice too.

    There are plenty of other very beautiful villages all over the English countryside. My particular favourite is Amberley in West Sussex, which has a castle, swamp, bird sanctuary, pottery, river, hills and lots of very pretty thatched cottages (among other things).

    But I’m a bit biased as Amberley is not too far from me.
