Steeple Ashton Conservation Village Wiltshire and the Area
Steeple Ashton, a most lovely and beautiful Wiltshire village, being both conservation and award winning.
Relax at Coachmans Cottage and enjoy life in this quintessential English village.
Granted a charter to hold a market back in 1266. Many pretty 16th 17th and 18th century houses remain today.
There is a wealth of architectural styles ranging from timber cottages, a Jacobean Manor House, Georgian houses, and even an occasional modern house has crept in.
The “blind house”, an old lock-up jail so named due to the lack of a window, with the only light coming from the grating in a fine original oak door, can be seen on the Village Green, a deterrent to naughtiness if ever there was!
St Mary’s Church is a magnificent example of 15th Century architecture, which can be seen from miles around, Sunday services are held here weekly. To hear why Steeple Ashton Church has no steeple? You will have to wait until you arrive!
Visit the well stocked, licensed village shop, housed in what was once the village school, with a coffee bar, in-store bakery, and the Post Office on Wednesday mornings.
Also “The Longs Arms” pub serves good food, with “Take Away Fish and Chips” on Tuesday evenings.
