We were having a few nights break in the area so booked this a few days ahead but would have prob been fine as walk in. Only the gardens are open and there’s no tea room but its v pretty here and my toddler loved wandering round gardens, lots little places to hide and nice views.

We had a lovely afternoon here last Sunday. The house is currently closed due to Covid restrictions, but the gardens are stunning! Not huge but there is enough to see, including walking round a small lake where we were lucky enough to see a kingfisher. Lots of late summer colour to enjoy & a small church to look around. There is a one way system in place & timed entry, pre-booked through the NT website. It isn’t somewhere to spend hours, but well worth an afternoon trip out.

The house is currently closed due to Covid 19 but gardens are open and you have to book in advance. Had never been before and was genuinely surprised at how beautiful the gardens are. One way system in place which meanders around the moat and through the gardens . The church is open and that too has been well maintained and is really lovely inside . Plenty of colourful flowers in July and on a sunny day there are stunning reflections in the water ! Definitively worth a visit and Courts Gardens is nearby too if you are travelling from afar !

This is our favourite NT small manor estate in North Wiltshire. It is worth taking one of the very interesting tours which are informative and informal. The rooms that are open to the public are not like stately manor rooms but comfortable and homey. There are photographs of the present owners who have raised their family in the rooms you are visiting and the Great Hall has often been used for local activities like dances, visiting plays take place in the gardens during the summer months and often plants from the gardens are for sale near the Medieval entrance. The Yew hedges are a special features for children to play and hide in, herbaceous borders are stunning in the summer months and you are welcomed by a moated property which oozes charm and character. Great Chalfield has been featured in many film and television series, most recently the Poldark TV series, the production of Wolf Hall, TV movie of Persuasion and the opening sequence of the movie ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’ when Henry VIII arrives to stay with his entourage to visit the Boleyn family. You need only spend a couple of hours here or you can spend more time In the gardens and walks nearby..

We were taken around the manor in a pre-booked group by an excellent guide and as a bonus there was refreshments laid out for us afterwards. Do explore the beautifully kept gardens and visit the church that sits to one side of the entrance ground. We can really recommend this NT property as another one of their hidden gems.
