Combe Down sits on a level ridge approximately 1.25 mile (2 km) to the south of Bath city centre. It sits at an altitude of 500ft and hence has always been renowned for its clean air quality with many moving from the city for this reason. The village is adjoined to the north by large areas of natural woodland with public footpaths offering stunning panoramic views overlooking the city and equally gratifying views of the Cotswold (AONB) valleys to the south.

This makes it a very popular place for families and those looking for an area with a rural feeling but still within walking distance of the city. You will find every level of schooling in the local vicinity with three nurseries, two academy primary schools, Ralph Allen academy senior school and two independent schools in Prior Park and Monkton Combe, both with pre-prep, prep and senior schools.
