The Old Court House was built in 1490 and is one of the most striking and historic holiday cottages in the Cotswolds, providing a beautiful glimpse back in time. The house is located in the heart of Castle Combe, which is one of the prettiest villages in Britain, and is surrounded by fabulous countryside, perfect for exploring on foot or by bike. The beautiful Roman spa town of Bath is only 11 miles away, and many other towns and attractions are close by, including Tetbury, Chippenham and The National Arboretum at Westonbirt. London is easily accessible for a day trip by either car or train. This historic property has an abundance of character, including an original coat of arms of Henry VIII painted above the fireplace. The original tudor structure is still clearly visible, and the many character features include exposed beams and Cotswold stone walls, stone mullion windows, oak doors, and a large fireplace with a wood burning stove. The property has been sympathetically renovated and the character is complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV, an excellent heating system, and a well presented kitchen. The Old Court House sleeps eight people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is a courtyard garden at the rear of the property and free street parking is available close to the house. The Old Court House is perfect for a family or group of friends looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful property, surrounded by the stunning south Cotswolds countryside.

About the neighborhood
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
