View of Biddestone village from the duck pond


Imagine a quintissential English village and Biddestone could spring to mind. The village ticks all the boxes with a village green, pubs, duckpond and a Norman church. Biddestone is situated at the bottom of the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding beauty.

We are between Castle Combe, known for its motor racing track, and the National Trust village of Lacock, home of Lacock Abbey (where scenes from Harry Potter were filmed) and the Fox Talbot Museum.
