The village of Castle Combe is regularly used as an idyllic film setting for the quintessential Cotswold village, such as for War Horse, and the 14th Century Manor House Hotel as the magical setting of Stardust and for Doctor Dolittle. If you Google 'England's prettiest village' this will come up regularly. As a setting, you will be stunned and it is a destination well worth visiting. The Bybrook restaurant, named after the river that meanders through the stunning grounds, is Michelin starred, extremely comfortable and reaps much praise from its imaginative menus. Its brigade of chefs use fresh produce from the Manor's own orchard and kitchen garden to create culinary masterpieces, together with a cellar to dream of. Whether dining in the evening or just taking afternoon tea this venue comes highly recommended.
