We visited Corsham having planned a walk around the estate. What we hadn't planned was finding such a delightful town. The fact that it was used as the location for Poldark's town scenes was unknown and a display of location photos featuring Aiden Turner was very easy on the eye! It is even prettier and more atmospheric than Lacock. Corsham... More

Amazing property & a real hidden treasure. One of the best preserved attractions I've seen & so much to see. Incredible to think it's been in the same family for over 250 years. Excels some national trust properties! And great value too. The room guides were very polite & informative. The gardens are lovely & peaceful & the parkland is... More

Arrived late afternoon, wish we'd allowed more time as there is so much to see if you enjoy art. The paintings were superbly displayed, particularly the picture gallery which is the most perfectly proportioned room. Capability Brown at his best. Room guides were excellent, very friendly and informative. Didn't have time to see gardens. Not a very good place to... More

Stayed around in Corsham to wait for the gardens to open - should not have bothered. It is mainly park land, very few plants worth seeing, not really gardens at all. Been to many gardens and counrty houses - this one is the very bottom of our pile! We have better "gardens" in our local parks - and they are... More

We make a great effort with the gardens and there is plenty to see. Not only does the gardens have the Grade One building the 18th century Bath House, the oriental plane, which is registered as the largest tree in Great Britain, but also extensive flowering shrubs and borders with herbaceous plants. The North Walk, laid out by Capability Brown,... More

We visited Corsham Ct gardens with our kids and another family. The gardens were beautiful but we found most of the staff unfriendly and even hostile. On our arrival, a man rushed out to say we weren't allowed there unless we'd paid (we had every intention of paying) and a woman inside the main house told my partner not to... More

There is a sign on the front gate which states that visitors to the property passing this point should go to the main entrance of the house and buy their tickets (ticket prices are displayed at this point). If visitors to the gardens come right up to the house and do not come in to buy a ticket, then a... More

We were amazed by the quality of the paintings and interior decoration of this rather understated and under-marketed house. (Best to ignore Simon Jenkins who only gives it a rather derisory 2 *in his 1000 best houses). Serious art lovers should not miss this gem.

This is a great house for the art lover. A superb collection of, mostly, pre-nineteenth century art and furniture. When I visited, I was the only visitor in the house. The room guides were friendly, charming and very knowledgeable on the collections. I took a stroll around the gardens which would be a real treat on a summer's day. I... More

A fantastic house still in private ownership. Plenty of rooms to explore with lots of very old paintings to view with plenty of staff to answer any questions. The extensive grounds are well worth going to view. (They cannot be seen from the house due to the trees) Well worth the admission charge.

Set in the perfect Wiltshire town of Corsham ,Corsham Court is a peacefull small attraction with some fine furniture and art along with some very attractive gardens and landscaping by Capability Brown. Along with a visit to Corsham its-self (recently used for Poldark series scenes) makes a day out with a difference. Excellent bus services serve Corsham from Bath and... More

This wasn't well advertised so we didn't know what to expect. It wasn't an auspicious start as the attraction seemed to have a rather hostile bouncer and the first time we turned up in the morning it transpired it only opened in the afternoon. The contents of the house reflect two stages of collecting in the same family by people... More
