The Chatry and the Church of St Nicholas are located in close proximity to each other in the village of Combe Raleigh. The church has a prominent positon within the village on a low rise and the Chanrtry is situated within a secluded garden defined by high hedges. Bothassets and the entire village are located within a combe.

Visibility from the combe in most directions apart from to the south is screened by wooded hills. The Site is entirely screened by Crook Hill. As such the Site is not consisted to be located within the setting of either the church or the Chantry and will have no effect on the significance of either building.
