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

Excellent house, so many rooms, helpful friendly people that you could ask any question. So many pictures, wonderful ceilings and interesting furniture. In fact we stopped there longer than intended as it was so interesting. So many lovely items but the wonderful Chinese exquisitely embroidered screen is amazing. We will be back.

This is a beautiful old country house in a park, with a lake and lots of peacocks. I can't tell if it's affordable to visit as a tourist, as I'm always visiting as a postgraduate student of Bath Spa University, and I'm really happy to have lectures in a place like this! If you find yourself in Bath or Chippenham,... More

A lovely walk in beautful grounds. Worth a look around the house but opening times are limited. Make sure you look around the church next door as well.

Our visit lasted all afternoon as there is a lot to see. The art collection on display rivals those in more high profile houses. There weren't many visitors while we were there so we had the very knowledgeable room guides to ourselves.

A lovely place to visit, a magnificent building and so much green! It has transformed to Bath Spa University's postgraduate building, mainly for Art lectures I think.
