We toured the manor house, gardens and museum.
The house is very intresting as each room was set out from a different period of time. It was OK to touch and sit down in the rooms.
The volunteers were excellent and extremely clued up on the rooms.
We went in the morning when we felt un rushed.

this is national trust property so if you are not a member they will charge you to get in. It is by timed ticket which can be got at the entrance. The house is interesting as each room is done in a different style of history, and unlike a lot of places you can sit in the chairs, lay on the bed and look in drawers. also worth visiting the museums to see about the stone circles

The gardens here are very attractive and well worth a wander around, although they are quite small compared to many grand NT houses and won’t take you too long to do. Whether I would have thought they were worth paying £5 for if I wasn’t a NT member, I’m not sure. We had hoped to go around the manor house, but was told that last entry was 3:00pm which seems rather early. We missed it by about 20 minutes.

The cafe was a pleasant spot and we had a decent slight of cake and a coffee.

Long time since we visited this NT property, but have always enjoyed it's unique characteristics.
We braved the wind and cold and had a wander around the colour themed rooms.
The presentation of wrapped presents and festive ornaments was sensational. Being advised this was all the work of volunteers made it even more rewarding.
The quality was of a professional standard and was beautifully staged. Congratulations to all concerned.

As you drive into Avebury you are directed to this car park which is free for National Trust members.
It’s a good 10 minute walk down to the village and the facility’s at the Manor.
All the standing stones are easily accessed from here, with routes marked through all the fields.
The Manor was closed on the day we visited, but we went in the small museum and around the gardens which was holding a sculpture exhibition.

Read that the Manor was decorated for Christmas. It's only 20 miles from the house but this was our first visit. Each room is decorated to a different period, from Tudor to the 1930's

The highlight was the Georgian Dining Room with a series of small are trees, decorated withe the 12 days of Christmas. The first with a partridge and a pair of turtle doves , all in miniature and the last with 12 little lords.

Tried Queen Anne's bed (a bit high off the ground for my wife) and relaxed in the 1930's drawing room.

Not stuffy at all, You can touch everything except the handpainted wallpaper.
Be sure to try out the exercise chair.

Typical NT gardens & facilties but the bonus of the unique & quirky Stones sticking up in surrounding fields. Some are HUGE Quite a sight & so many!
The Manor House itself was temporarily closed so check before you go if that’s your thing.
Astonishing how the tools used to dig the moats & huge holes for the stones were made from Antlers.

One annoyance is the distance from the Main Car Park to the NT toilets. If you’re planning to travel some distance & need the Toilets on arrival expect a further 10 minute walk from the Main Car Park to the NT Toilets. Quite a walk if you’re in extremis!

I really enjoyed visiting this property and seeing the various periods the rooms were portrayed in. The gardens are lovely too and there was an art exhibition on at the time.

The property featured in the Manor Reborn series which assisted in its renovation.

Visited the Manor Gardens (did not go on a tour of the manor itself) on a hot Sunday during half term but the gardens were quite quiet, especially compared to the stone circle and car parks in the village.

The gardens were pleasant but are still suffering from the Covid forced neglect last year which is a shame and meant that weeds etc are more prevalent than we would assume usual.

We spotted newts in the pond which was nice to see and provided a bit of a focal point for the trip.

Overall, the gardens are relatively small and only took around 20 mins but if you happen to be in the village and are a NT member (as entry is free for members) they are worth a visit.

The house wasn't open when we visited midweek however you can visit the gardens. Unfortunately they have not been cared for last year due to Covid so there are a lot of weeds to look at, so maybe only visit at the moment if you are a NT member as I wouldn't recommend paying. Hopefully they will be able to return to former glory in the next couple of years.
