Lovely house and gardens, informative guided tour of the house though the guide on our visit would benefit by being a bit more friendly and welcoming.

We arrived in the middle of a Garden Fair and a Thunderstorm - not a good combination. Gardens are good with some spectacular topiary hedge houses (not rain proof!) House (from the outside) is a very interesting mix of periods and styles - unfortunately there are only 3 tours of the House on Sunday and we were too late to... More

Fabulous manor and gardens. Very interesting indeed...The guided tour lasting approx 45mins was well worth it. Some very interesting facts about this very picturesque Nat Trust in a beautiful setting. Gardens very well maintained.

This is a lovely old house and church and garden, and we were lucky enough to have a tour by the man whose family have lived there for years. It was very informative and I would definitely recommend this property to visit.

We arrived late on Easter Monday. Unable to view the house unless on a guided tour. We walked around the gadens, only took 30 mins then inside the church. Quaint place, we'll visit again in the summer months gardens may be better

We visit at a couple of times a year because the gardens are always good to explore and the Manor has so much history & atmosphere. The guides who do the tours are good without exception and one learns some new facts each time! Well worth a visit, especially in nice weather. There is also a small church beside the... More

I go to Great Chalfield regularly. The gardens are delightful regardless of the time of year. The house is very atmospheric. Ask about becoming a friend of the manor and you can visit when it is normally closed to the public.

Unfortunately we didn't have time to see the interior of the house, but the gardens were absolutely beautiful. The lake is really pretty and there are some really beautiful arrangements of flowers and shrubs. The cafe was interesting - an honesty box for the coffee and biscuits! A must if nearby
