Situation    

Corsham is a pretty and historic town of architectural significance located on the southern fringes of the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty and some 8 miles North East of the fine Georgian City of Bath. The town, noted for its fine High Street, has a wealth of beautiful and historic buildings dating from the 16th Century such as the Alms House and the historic Corsham Court with its landscaped open parkland. The town caters for most day to day needs with a range of national and bespoke shops, coffee houses, boutiques, restaurants and a variety of public houses. There are very good Primary and Secondary schools and the new Corsham Leisure Centre. Communications are excellent: Bath, Bristol and Swindon are all within easy motoring distance. There are fast road links to London and the West Country via the M4 motorway (J17 and 18 approximately 15 - 20 minutes away); and main line rail services are available from either Bath or Chippenham to Bristol Temple Meads and London Paddington.
