Steeple Ashton a Conservation Village in Wiltshire
Relax at Coachmans Holiday Cottage and enjoy life in this Quintessential English Conservation 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” can be found on the Village Green, an old lock-up jail so named because there is no window, with the only light coming from the grating in a fine original oak door. 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. Learn why Steeple Ashton has a church with no steeple when you arrive!
Visit the well stocked, award winning, licensed village shop, with a coffee bar, in-store bakery, and the Post Office on Wednesday mornings. Housed in the old Village School.
Also “The Longs Arms” pub is now a "bistro pub". Al fresco kitchen garden in the summer, and logs fires in the winter.
