The Gates is a wonderful holiday cottage located in England’s prettiest village.

Located in: Chippenham
Voted England's prettiest village, Castle Combe in the Cotswolds is the perfect destination should you wish to relax, walk and enjoy the slow pace of country life. Situated in a conservation area this picturesque village enables you to walk to the thatched Castle Inn for a beer or a glass of wine, while still being a short drive from the cosmopolitan cities of Bath and Bristol, each offering a fantastic array of shops, restaurants, theatres and bars.

This historic property, known as the Gates, is set in the very heart of the idyllic and popular village of Castle Combe. Little has changed since the 15th century with no street lights or TV aerials to detract from the village's ancient beauty. All the buildings are listed and nestled in the wooded Cotswold valley. The atmosphere is absolutely breath-taking.

The position of the Gates could not be better; opposite the centrepiece of the village, the Medieval Market Cross. The property is positioned on the edge of the village churchyard with its attractive clock tower. The gable wall in the property features a Gothic window originally from the church. Some parts of the house date back to Medieval times and most of the roof timbers are over 400 years old.

In 2003 this holiday retreat was sadly devastated by fire but the building has been beautifully and sympathetically restored retaining all the character of the original structure yet offering attractive accommodation with excellent facilities.
