Beautiful tranquil spot
The house oozed character and felt good to be part of history. The amenities were excellent and all the family said how comfortable the beds were. There was a slight hiccup at the beginning when we arrived , but this was responded to immediately and efficiently. Highly recommend the porch house.

A fairy tale experience — the cottage, hamlet and area.
The cottage and Castle Combe could have come directly from a happy fairytale. A once in a life experience. We will never forget driving into the village in disbelief that we were actually staying here. Don’t miss an opportunity to feel like your living in history.

Beautiful, comfortable cottage in the Cotswolds
Porch House is absolutely stunning. It is ideally situated for exploring nearby villages such as Lacock and Bradford-on-Avon is just a short drive away. I stayed here with 4 friends, the cottage is very comfortable and equipped to a high standard. Shirley, the owner is very helpful and quick to reply to any queries. There are two pubs in the village serving nice food, and there is a circular walk that takes in Ford a hamlet that also has a pub serving the most delicious Sunday roast. I would thoroughly recommend Porch House

Gorgeous cottage in a fantastic village
We had a lovely stay in this beautiful cottage, it has a huge fireplace with a stove that kept us very cosy and warm. Comfortable beds and very clean place. Parking not ideal but manageable. Would highly recommend.

Really lovely cottage
Really enjoyed our short stay at Porch House. Everything thing that you could wish for in a quaint Cotswold cottage. Castle Combe well deserves its title of one of the prettiest Cotswold villages.

A lovely, cosy cottage in a beautiful location
We had a lovely stay in this cottage. The location in a beautiful Cotswold village is excellent. Only downsides: the width of the garage does not cater for bigger MPVs/ SUVs and taller people need to be careful not to bump their heads against beams in the ceilings etc.
