We were lucky, the weather was amazing on th day we visited and we were able to fully enjoy the gardens a well as the house, Entry to house is by timed ticket, we were split into two groups as there were 36 people at that time and the rooms and staircases were not built for those numbers. The guide... More

This is no ordinary national trust property. It is a family home run by the family. They are welcoming warm and want to share their home with you. The garden is a picture. On our visit the owner had to come in from doing the gardening to help show people around. It was her home and the love she had... More

The National Trust do it so well. Following a morning at Lacock Abbey we moved on to Great Chalfield Manor. While this is a NT property it is also a living home so some areas are private. But that doesn't stop the intriguing history presented by excellent guides and bring to life the great history of England from Year 900... More

One of the properties I visited while in Wiltshire. I did not view the house, as I love gardens. The formal areas were wonderful, but the lake was a real disappointment. It was full of algae, the banks were overgrown as were the surrounding areas. I guess it was the "wildlife friendly" look, but in reality is just a mess.... More

Not one of the largest National Trust properties, but certainly one of those that I have enjoyed visiting the most. Perhaps the guided tour was made all the more interesting because we were being shown around by the lady who lives there and cares for the beautiful garden. All rooms are used by the family and it's a real privilege... More

We took our American friends to Great Chalfield as it's not too big to go around but is steeped in history. They were bowled over by the fact it had stood since Medieval times! As we walked in to pay, we met the present incumbent of the Manor, who on hearing our friends accents, asked where they came from... only... More

Nice gardens and grounds plus a tea room area and a modern toilet block plus the delightful Manor itself which has featured in TV and movie productions including Wolf Hall. The house itself is only viewable with a tour guide. Tours take place on the hour from 11.00 and last 45 minutes. Tours are not bookable. Parking is on the... More

The home is the quintessential English manor and has been on my bucket list for years. I was not disappointed in any way. The grounds were a beautiful representation of a country garden, and the home itself is a fabulous preservation of English country life.

I went here with a friend from our local camera club, and had been recommended it by several other of our members. We had been wandering around the grounds with our cameras and taking lots of photographs. We decided to go and have a cuppa, and made our way past the stables. We saw a doorway surrounded with sunflowers and... More
