Porch House was everything we wanted for our stay in Castle Combe and MORE. The pictures did it justice and we enjoyed being at one of the most charming cottages in hands-down the cutest village in the Cotswolds. It was slow paced, relaxing, and exactly what we needed. The beds were comfy, the rooms well sized, bathrooms for all (there were 6 staying there and we never felt on top of each other), and it was everything we wanted. The garden in back was beautiful and the brook in front had us surrounded by glorious nature (we stayed Mid-May and it was gorgeous). We dined at the two pubs in town which were wonderful, as well as up at the Manor House (had a meal and afternoon tea) and felt like Royalty. We could not have asked for a more storybook getaway. Shirley was easy to communicate with and got back to us with answers to our questions right away. We will absolutely come back and stay again! Just a tip that worked well for us, we did a little grocery shopping at at market near the train station in Chippenham, as there is no market in Castle Combe. That worked perfectly for us to make our own breakfasts and have some drinks and snacks.
