For our last day in the Cotswolds we certainly saved the best till last. Castle Combe’s old English charm of an age gone by made it my favourite by far. It’s wonderfully well kept, and it looks like Jane Austen could step out of a door at any minute. It’s no wonder that the village has long been the refuge of artists and film makers, the cottages have been used in films such as The War Horse and Dr Dolittle!
We visited early on the Saturday morning and I was shocked at how quiet the little village was, barely a tourist in sight, perhaps because it is off the beaten track a little compared to the other Cotswolds villages.
