The Manor House at Castle Combe

Nestled in the beautiful valley of Castle Combe with its magnificent and well-photographed high street, is the 14th-century manor house. I've photographed here before and every time I am bowled away by the beauty of the valley, house, village and most of all the ornate (and Italian looking in my opinion) staircase and gardens. Romance is everywhere in this venue ad I can't wait to be back here again.
