I go regularly it has great gardens and is very near to were I live. My children love running around the top garden. With children you need to be aware that the front and especially the back has large ponds, both with bull rushes in, so keep an eye on your children especially if they are young as falling in...

The National Trust leaflet which we were given on entering these gardens was headed "Wiltshire's secret garden". It is such a well-kept secret, that we wouldn't have visited it had our locally-living friends not already known it. Why do they keep it a secret? In a sense, we were pleased that it was, otherwise our visit would have been less... More

The gardens are pretty but in need of some maintenance. The paths are very uneven and the terracing is collapsing in places. The atmosphere was frosty and the tenants rude. The tour was very good as was the guide. Photographs were banned in the house due to family pictures. I would recommend removing the family pictures (only 7/8 anyway) to... More

We've done an awful lot of National Trust over the years, but somehow missed this one until today. I'm sure the house tour guides rotate their shifts but ours was very entertaining and hugely well informed on the history of not only the house but the times it was built and lived in. Brought the whole thing to life.

A lovely setting, a beautiful old house, and rustic and informal gardens make this a lovely place to visit. If you're in the area, it's a must, but worth driving a fair distance if the weather is good.

Wonderful National Trust property. Very informative tour available every hour when we were there (but check Trust website for daily tour details when you are going). A bit off the beaten track but all the better for that given the peace and quiet there. Loved it!

You join a guided walk around this house which is still a family home so only a small section of the house is open to the public and you can't take photographs inside. However the guides are wonderful and very knowledgeable, and you certainly see enough of the property to really appreciate it. The current family have personal photos on... More

We are members of the National Trust but this is a lovely historic place to visit for an afternoon. The Gardens are lovely and were made better by the lovely weather, if we had planned we should have packed a picnic but instead we had a cup of tea and biscuits, a help yourself service with a loyalty box.

Two National Trust properties very close together Lacock Abbey and Great Chalfield Manor about 7 miles apart. Great Chalfield whilst much smaller than Lacock Abbey is well worth a visit the gardens when I visited were at their peak. As a lover of swallows and house martins I have never seen so many as around this house. Tours of the... More

This National Trust property is a real delight. There are only timed visits around the house, but it is possible to explore the gardens and chapel without a guide. The moated manor is well preserved and the tour lasting 45 minutes provides an insight into its development and life. It is out in the countryside, but is well signposted. Somewhere... More
