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

I visited Great Chalfield Manor with my Grandmother as a birthday treat for her last week. We arrived just in time for a guided tour which initially was a private one as no one else turned up! The lady had been involved with the house for 40 something years and what she didn't know about it wasn't worth knowing! One... More

The gentleman doing the guided tour was excellent. The tours generally run at 11, 12,1 and 2pm. The Manor is beautiful and is well kept for its age. We were very impressed with the knowledge of the guide and the effort he put in. There are stairs up to the top floor which can be difficult for disabled visitors, however... More

We visited here in September. It was a very interesting tour of the Manor though we were late and missed the gardens and church. My wife said it didn't matter because we saw them in 2007. I had no recollection of the manor but when I came home there it was in the photo albums. Isn't it great to visit... More
