The Location

Croscombe is first recorded in AD706 when King Ina of Wessex referred to the village as Correges Cumb.

It was in the 17th century that many of Croscombe's significant houses, cottages and hostelries were built many of which still survive.

The large Church is of particular interest built in the Perpendicular Gothic style and reconstructed during the 16th and 17th centuries having an unusual spire for Somerset, and Jacobean interior woodwork of national renown.

As the wool trade declined, the Industrial Revolution brought new industries such as the silk trade, mining, quarrying and milling which all left their mark upon the village landscape. The Chimney almost opposite Millview is a clear reminder of Croscombe's industrial past marking as it does the site of the mill from which the cottage takes its name. The ancient Market Cross recalls the village's social history.

The ancient George Inn is a short walk from the cottage and serves excellent food. You can be assured of a welcoming and friendly atmosphere here.

With its beautiful country walks Croscombe is indeed an ideal village for holidaying.
