Grounds & Gardens
A gated entrance and sweeping gravelled driveway lead up to parking and turning space in front of the property. To either side of the driveway is an area of orchard and established rose garden with a gateway leading to a more formal area of garden by the house which is arranged in the most attractive style with lawns, well stocked herbaceous borders and rose beds. This part of the garden is largely walled and screened along one side by high hedging. There is an old stone terrace to one side with steps and a stone pathway leading to a further terrace by the front door, with a side gate leading out onto the lane. To the side of the property there is a further area of garden with lawn, a wide stone pathway, a gated entrance from the driveway and a circular ornamental pond with stone surround. Double gates lead from this garden to a further area of garden. There is an Alton greenhouse, oil storage tank and Store Room/Laundry. From the drive a field gate leads to the paddock which is fairly level and bounded by an established hedgerow and tree planting, and has a stone field shelter.
Upper Castle Combe is, as the name suggests, situated on the outskirts of the main village. Picturesque Castle Combe is noted for its unspoilt Cotswold character and Grade II listed properties. Its immaculate street scene has been used as a film location for ''War Horse'', ''Stardust'' and ''Dr Doolittle''. Voted ''the prettiest village in England'', Castle Combe has a secluded position in the By Brook Valley.
At the heart of the village is the 14th Century Market Cross, a small hotel, a public house and a church. The Manor House Hotel with its Michelin star restaurant and the golf club with a Peter Alliss designed course, is regarded as one of the top 100 in the UK. Castle Combe lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, amidst lovely North Wiltshire countryside, Northwest of the practical market town of Chippenham and within easy reach of the Georgian city of Bath, with its many cultural, leisure and shopping attractions. Tetbury and Cirencester, two typical Cotswold's towns, are also easily accessible. The M4 motorway (Junctions 17 & 18) provides fast road access to London, Bristol, Swindon and the West Country. Nearby Chippenham offers a comprehensive range of shopping facilities and amenities including a sports/leisure centre and main line rail services (Paddington 75 minutes).
There is a good choice of both state and private schooling in the area, with several well known private schools, including St Mary's Calne, Stonar, Pinewood and Westonbirt, as well as the reputable colleges in Bath, all in close proximity. Those with an interest in country and leisure pursuits are well catered for in the region.
