A rare opportunity to see the house during the winter. Very informative and enthusiastic costumed guides made it a thoroughly enjoyable visit. Real log fire and magnificent Christmas tree in the great hall. Only a few ground floor rooms open due to the lack of heating in the house, but they made the most of them.

We have previously reviewed this house. On this occasion we visited with two friends from the USA and it was as before, immensely rewarding. The house has been preserved effectively in its original state other than the historical changes that are inevitable over a history of hundreds of years. Everything is well organised and has a charming feel almost as... More

a stunning house set in beautiful surroundings, alas we did not check the opening times so we were there on the wrong day and could not visit the interior, have to come back but we had a nice walk around and it really looks like you are going back in time, especially since there was nobody else around :-)

Preserved as it was after the last person left. A fascinating place to visit. The guides are very knowledgable too. Well worth a visit.

Evocative atmosphere of the 'genteel poor' at the turn of the 19th/20th century.. The house is in a time-warp and you can smell the dust and appreciate the impossible task of meeting the upkeep of such a large house without adequate funds. Make sure you watch the video and read the brochure before entering the house as there are virtually... More

Going back through the centuries. Must visit. A very special house and fine setting. Home of croquet - must stand on the lawn!

Chastleton House built in the 1600's is Jacobean in date and style. The interior is more or less as it was when built and hence visitors get transported back in time. It is important to talk to the many guides on site as they will paint a vivid picture of what life has been like in this fascinating house. The... More

Chastleton House is a Jacobean family home situated near Moreton in Marsh, Oxfordshire. The great thing about this place is it hasn't been restored by the National Trust and except for essential repairs has been left alone, so is nearly as it was 400 years ago. Paint peeling, wood rotting, walls cracking. (but well preserved) It's not as large as... More

Visit began with lovely rural walk from the car park down the hill beside the grazing sheep to this Jacobean Three storey Manor House. House dark and atmospheric and pretty much unchanged over the centuries. Used for filming recent television period drama. Very friendly helpful guides in all rooms. Afterwards enjoyed tea and homemade cake in the courtyard tea room... More

Visiting Chastleton was a magical experience. The Jacobean exterior is truly beautiful, the setting unspoilt and the dusty interior with its wonderful oak panelling, decorated ceilings and amazing long gallery gave me a sense of stepping back in time. Be prepared for a bit of a walk from the car park and to get your tea and cake from the... More
