Castle Combe, Chippenham
Perhaps the prettiest village in England, Castle Combe rests in the Wiltshire Cotswolds as a picturesque little community on the edge of the Bybrook River. The small, charming streets are lined with quintessentially Cotswolds stonewall cottages. Such beauty has attracted the attention of more than just visitors: it featured on the silver screen in Stardust (2007) and Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-nominated War Horse (2011). Explore the quaint streets and keep an eye out for one of the oldest functioning medieval clocks still in the UK, which can be found at St Andrew’s Church. There are also a selection of lovely hotels, if you’d like to spend a few days in this beautiful little community.
