best national trust houses to visit? B and B or Country Hous

My husband likes to stay away from the maddening crowds, so I am looking for a nice, fairly upscale B&B in the countryside outside a village in the Cotswolds to be used as a base. We will have a car, so driving to the different villages will not be a problem. Any recommendations will be welcome. we love the old style homes and would prefer to see some 'smaller' type than Chatsworth..Suggestions??

I loved Snowshill Manor, fabulous place to see. A few miles up the road is Croome Park. Upton House and Charlecote Park are also well worth a visit.

I took mum to the Cotswolds for the weekend last year and stayed in this b&b http://www.theoldschoolbedandbreakfast.com/ which I found to be quite luxurious and relaxing. It wasn't far in the car to many of the Cotswold highlights or Blenheim and in the evening we were able to walk to a near by pub for supper. I loved snowshill but I think it's a matter of taste the place is crammed with interesting artefacts some people might consider as junk!!

There are some lovely Gloucestershire b and bs on the websites www.quintessentialbedandbreakfast.co.uk and also www.britainsfinest.co.uk. It is worth looking at the south Cotswolds too, such as Tetbury or Cirencester area as you would be near Bath and also National Trust properties such as Dyrham Park, (stately home) Woodchester Mansion (unfinished Victorian mansion and park) and Chedworth Roman Villa (ruins but many mosaics to see and in beautiful countryside) -each worth visiting as they have their own individual charms. I can also recommend Hidcote - the gardens are beautiful. It is an easy drive from Tetbury (Prince Charles' home is near here too) to Cirencester then along the A429 to Bourton/Stow/Moreton etc. so travelling should be no problem if you do decide on this area. Have a lovely trip!
