Box village marks the southernmost tip of the Cotswolds and is a pretty and history-laden village with convenient shops, lovely walks, pubs and a great indian restaurant. Box is home to both Peter Gabriel’s Real World recording studios as well as England’s only tennis ball factory! We are just 6 miles from the World Heritage city of Bath and also very close to the historic villages of Lacock, Castle Combe, Bradford on Avon, Avebury and Corsham. Whether your interests extend to the arts, sport, food, shopping, walking, festivals or stately homes and gardens there is always plenty to do in this beautiful part of the world.
