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.
There is simply no other village like it on the outskirts of the city with such a wide range of local amenities and schooling. 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. There is also Threeways School which provides for special education needs from ages 4 to 19 years.
Locally there is an abundance of amenities with doctor’s surgery, Bath BMI Clinic, dentist, two pharmacies, highly reputed car garage, award winning delicatessen, fish and chip shop, hair salon, builders merchants, beauty therapist, bakery and Co-op mini-markets. On the western edge of the village is a Tesco Express with petrol station and a large Sainsburys supermarket can also be found in neighbouring Odd Down. Nearby you will also find the excellent country club spa hotel Combe Grove Manor, which provides fine dining, gymnasium, spa treatments, swimming facilities and tennis courts both indoor and outdoor. There is also a new development being built in the village called Mulberry Park.
