Why Kirstie Duke chose Castle Combe

Castle Combe is an exceptionally beautiful and untouched village in the Cotswolds. Within a 2 minute walk to the Manor House complete with Michelin star restaurant 'the Bybrook', golf course, Castle Combe Circuit racing and endless stunning walks along the river, this is a place you can do everything or nothing. Perfect to unwind in front of our wood burning stove set in a majestic fireplace. You will never want to leave!

What makes this house unique

Please note there are two low doorways in the house which you need to be aware of, as this is a 15th century house. It does keep tall men out of the kitchen which can be a good thing. We hold no responsibility for any accidental damage that you may incur within the house. Please pay attention on the stairs and through the doors! Most of the ceilings, however are extremely high, you are not checking into a Hobbit house!

We picked the best!

  • 5 of 5

I was so happy when I found this rental and was just as pleased when I stepped inside. It was perfect. It was obviously an old building renovated so yes, the stairs are steep and slightly treacherous and my tall teenage boys bumped their heads more times than they liked but we all found that part of the charm (yes, even my three teenage boys fell in love with this place). The home was elegantly decorated and luxurious and had modern amenities. The owner made her guests feel welcome with flowers and flameless candles greeting us and on throughout our stay. The beds had perfect bedding on them and were comfortable. Bathrooms had a fun and quirky design to fit into the older space but both bathrooms were up to date, were clean, and easy to use. We had extra towels, ate off beautiful English china, and our family was able to spread out easily. The only two flaws we had was the bunk was very high and hot with no circulation and the fan just didn't reach so the teenager that was supposed to sleep there had to bunk with another because it was so uncomfortably hot. The second issue was parking was limited and a challenge every time we left. The town was charming and we ate at both pubs in town, enjoyed walking through St Andrew and its cemetery, and appreciated the boots provided to wade in the picturesque stream. I would eagerly recommend this home to anyone staying in the Cotswolds.

Idyllic location, beautiful cottage

  • 4 of 5

The Old Court House is full of history and character, and is furnished with style and quality fittings and furniture. We really enjoyed the long weekend we spent there. However, the stairs are not for the feint-hearted! It is perfectly located right in the village next to two eating places, and we loved our special dinner for my husband's birthday at the Manor House.

A beautiful house in a beautiful 'chocolate box' village

  • 5 of 5

Had the most wonderful few days in this outstanding, well equipped 'tudor house' in the Cotwolds. Plenty of room for us 4 adults and 4 children, with Castle Combe as a great spot to explore the surrounding villages, with Bath only 20 mins away. We also did one of the local Castle Combe walks into Ford which was great fun too !!! Two lovely pubs/restaurants in the local area serving great food. Would definitely recommend this lovely home to anyone looking to explore the Cotswolds.

Lovely cottage, nice host

  • 4 of 5

Cottage is charming. Village how you imagine a Cotswold village to be. Comfy beds, lovely sofas, well dressed cottage. My parents didn't like the tv issue (chrome cast). And the poker for the fire was missing. Apart from that all very nice. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and I'm so glad you enjoyed the Old Court House. Just wanted to say that the fire now has a poker and we installed 'Now TV' which takes out the issues guests were experiencing from Chrome cast. You can view all regular channels via this as well as a wide range of films and catch-up tv, so perfect if you want a night snuggled in front of the telly! Appreciate this feedback.

Wonderful family time at most charming home!

  • 5 of 5

I have spend 4 days at this lovely house at castle Combe with my family and some friends. We were 2 couples with 3 children aged 10, 9 and 8. And we had an amazing time. The house is located in one of most beautiful towns in Cotswolds and was perfect for our needs. The house is an old house but has been renovated keeping the old style flavour. 2 very comfortable double rooms for the parents and 1 for the children .The modern kitchen is fully equipped to cook evening meals that we enjoyed in the comfortable dinning room. If you want to have a proper experience at Cotswolds I certainly recommend staying here. The people in the village are also super friendly !

Tsk Kirsten!,,, see you next time !
