Quickest way is to get the train from Bath to Chippenham and then get the #35 or 75 bus from Chippenham to Castle Combe.

#35 bus: www.travelinesw.com/swe/XSLT_TTB_REQUEST…

#75 bus: www.travelinesw.com/swe/XSLT_TTB_REQUEST…

The buses from Chippenham to Castle Combe are not very regular so you would have to time it right when getting the train from Bath to Chippenham. (The trains are a lot more regular.)

Check train times and fares here: www.nationalrail.co.uk

You can take a tour. I took a tour with the Jane Austen Festival. We used Nick Jones, World Heritage Trails. He's very funny and a great guide. He's booked right now but if you check in advance he may be able to take you.

I visited Castle Combe a few weeks ago with a Mad Max tour. The town can be seen on both their full day tour of the area along with half day tours if you are planning to return to Bath for the night.
