Castle Combe is one of the most beautiful villages in England. It is impossible to think of the English countryside without an image of this place coming to mind. That’s why Castle Combe is a must on any tour of the Cotswolds.
📍How to get to Castle Combe
If you are travelling to the Cotswolds I recommend hiring a car.

🗺 Places to visit in Castle Combe
Castle Combe is located in the south, a little away from the agglomeration of pretty villages that congregate in the northern part of the English countryside.
It is a village of less than 400 inhabitants, and is made up of little more than a couple of streets. The most curious thing about this village is that its inhabitants have small stalls with drinks and sweets to buy. You take whatever you want to take with you and leave the money in the jar provided.

🍴Where to eat in Castle Combe
Castle Combe doesn’t have a great gastronomic offer, it’s a small village. We didn’t stop for a coffee or a meal there either, but if I were to return I think I’d opt for its historic pub The White Hart or The Manor House. It has the aforementioned restaurant and a pub that also serves food.
