This is a gem, a well-preserved manor house built in the 1460's which retains many of its original features and character, thanks to careful ownership and restoration. It was built on the cusp of the shift from fortification to domestic gentrification, the only nods to...More

Hubby and I really enjoyed our recent visit to Great Chalfield Manor; we love the hands-on approach here - no stuffy rooms where nothing must be touched. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable - very interesting and fun visit.

Wonderful house with lots of historical rooms open to the public, including a great hall! Lovely gardens and a little chapel. Tours available, which are very interesting. Another gem in Wiltshire.

Great Chalfield Manor deserves its initial name association. The National Trust keeps it magnificently both in and out as a prime example of period architecture and trappings. In taking the tour, we were advised that photos were not allowed at the time. Such prohibitions in...More
