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.
