From The Atlas of Middle-earth, Revised Edition, Karen wynn Fonstand, p. 124-5.

"Bree was the chief village of the Bree-land, a small inhabited region, like an island in the empty lands round about. Besides Bree itself, there was Staddle on the other side of the hill, Combe in a deep valley a little further eastward, and Archet on the edge of the Chetwood. Lying round Bree-hill and the villages was a small country of fields and tamed woodland only a few miles broad."

From The Fellowship of the Ring, LoTR Book 1, Ch 9, At the Sign of the Prancing Pony
