A traditional, luxurious bolthole with grounds that roll down to Castle Combe – England’s most complete medieval village – this is a classic country house retreat with a good dollop of history thrown in.

Golfers come for the Peter Alliss-designed 18-hole course (and to settle in for post-round drinks at the elegant clubhouse), while couples come for the romantic four-poster rooms, Michelin-starred dining at the Bybrook restaurant and the gorgeous Italian gardens that wrap around the hotel.

Proximity to the village is the extra bonus – meaning guests are free to explore in the early morning or late afternoon, when the coach parties and crowds have left.


Surrounding area

The hotel is in the Cotswold countryside, a short walk from the historic village of Castle Combe. While it is surrounded by trees and fields, there is a fast road to take you to the nearest city, Bath, and other Cotswolds villages.

The hotel is down a long drive so there is no traffic noise, only the occasional shout of ‘fore’ from the golfers on the course which backs on to the house.
