A very interesting property, one I had not visited before which is unusual as I thought I had been to most NT properties. We had a wonderful guided tour with a very knowledgeable, interesting and entertaining guide. The property is only accessible by tour which cannot be pre-booked so make sure you arrive with the ability to get a later... More

Although I live very close to Great Chalfield Manor I had never visited it, but now I have I think its one of my favourite places. A National trust property and actually still lived in and used as a home, this is a truly beautiful place. The gardens are outstanding, so beautiful and well tended with the gardeners happy to...

This place is magical, with a fantastic history going back '00s of years. The volunteer guide was a mine of information, sharing wonderful stories with us. One issue only is that there are parts of it that are not accessible to anyone with a walking problem. But they handled that with great care and charm. The gardens are lovely too.

We were lucky, the weather was amazing on th day we visited and we were able to fully enjoy the gardens a well as the house, Entry to house is by timed ticket, we were split into two groups as there were 36 people at that time and the rooms and staircases were not built for those numbers. The guide... More

This is no ordinary national trust property. It is a family home run by the family. They are welcoming warm and want to share their home with you. The garden is a picture. On our visit the owner had to come in from doing the gardening to help show people around. It was her home and the love she had... More

The National Trust do it so well. Following a morning at Lacock Abbey we moved on to Great Chalfield Manor. While this is a NT property it is also a living home so some areas are private. But that doesn't stop the intriguing history presented by excellent guides and bring to life the great history of England from Year 900... More

One of the properties I visited while in Wiltshire. I did not view the house, as I love gardens. The formal areas were wonderful, but the lake was a real disappointment. It was full of algae, the banks were overgrown as were the surrounding areas. I guess it was the "wildlife friendly" look, but in reality is just a mess.... More
