Landscape

Combe Grove is immersed in the landscape. Descend the stone steps from the manor house and the view across the Limpley Stoke Valley lays itself before you, a vista of unbroken green with the Westbury White Horse cut into the distant hillside.

The Limpley Stoke Valley is the southernmost tip of the Cotswolds Area of Natural Beauty (AONB), a rich, diverse, landscape which stretches from Bath through Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire to Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

The landscape features pastoral lower slopes with fields bounded by a network of hedges which skirt the course of the River Avon and the Kennet & Avon Canal. The extensive areas of semi-natural ancient woodland on the steep valley sides offer a wonderful environment for wildlife and in the morning sunlight you can often spot a deer breaking cover in search of food.

The skyline is free from development and so has very little light pollution making it perfect for our star-gazing events.
