Situated in England, Lacock is a village of a very special beauty, its “newest” homes being at least 250 years old. Also to be found here are a 14th century barn, a 15th century inn, as well as a medieval church.

Lacock Abbey was founded by the Countess of Salisbury in 1232. In 1944 the abbey, along with the abbey estate and the entire village land were donated by the owner, Matilda Gilchrist Clark, to the National Trust.

Lacock’s medieval atmosphere has made it popular as a shooting site for famous movies, such as Pride and Prejudice, Robin Hood or Harry Potter. The house in which the famous literary and film character Harry Potter was born is in Lacock.
