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

Fascinating house, excellent tour guide. Best thing for us was the garden, absolutely beautiful. A blend of manicured and wild which provides a perfect setting for the house. Very good plant sales. Tea etc. served on a help yourself/honesty box basis. Wish we lived nearer, will definitely re-visit.

Tucked away in the country. Walking in you could be going back in time by a two or three centuries. Good volunteer guide brought some of the history to life. Stroll around the gardens was a delight. Better not to comment on food/drink offering.

We love the garden at Great Chalfield Manor. Pretty and full of pretty flowers, a water garden and a beautiful location. Really peaceful. The house is very interesting too - a very old manor house. Worth a visit, though there isn't a normal NT café - just a little set-up in a barn with self-service drinks and biscuits.

On this occasion just visited the gardens, although there are timed guided tours of the manor house as well. Lovely gardens, that have different sections, each with their own special charm. There is a DIY tea/coffee/biscuits with honesty box in the old barn. We sat and watched the house martins swoop overhead in the sunshine while a family member kitted... More

OK if you are not into Elzabethan Houses than it may not be quite as good as the title suggests but it is in a beautiful setting and IS well worth a visit. Been there a few times over the years and a spring Summer visit to tak in the gardens makes it even better.

This is a wonderful place to visit. Bring a picnic as there is no restaurant on site. Coffee teas drinks and biscuits are available in the old barn. Take a guided tour of the house and learn all about its interesting history. The gardens are lovely with well stocked borders and lawns sweeping down to lake and river. Don't miss... More
