Heath was a modern day polymath. History will judge his political life but you cannot but admire his achievements as a yachtsman, musician and artist. House week preserved as He lived in it and guides in each room are well worth listening to.

Such an interesting house to learn of the life of Ted Heath. The guests he had for dinner, the five yachts all called Morning Cloud and his love of music. Top notch guides who made the visit extra special with thorough knowledge and lots of enthusiasm . It’s located right opposite Salisbury Cathedral where Ted Heath is buried.
No cafe but plenty in town or at the Cathedral.

We took wedding photos here - Ivan and his staff treated us wonderfully. Fantastic spot for photos, only cost us £100, it was quiet and everyone was so friendly. Just a perfect spot for us to take photos and enjoy ourselves. Everyone was kind enough to serve us drinks as well while we took our photos, and were very patient with us. More photos will be uploaded online - would highly recommend Arundell’s as the most picturesque spot in Salisbury for photos. Amazing service wonderful time and beautiful grounds. (These photos are only from our phones so we hope they reflect how stunning the gardens were!)

With a dedicated volunteer in every room to tell you many many details about Ted Heath's later life (and early career) you will learn many unexpected things about the late PM who presided over the disastrous early 70s. He had some very serious extra-curricular activities which enabled him to amass a very creditable collection of eastern art and artefacts, mostly hoovered up on his many visits to China. He clearly was fond of paintings and photos of himself, and his bathroom contains not one but two infinity mirrors - one is reminded of Admiral Croft's response to Sir Walter Elliot's dressing room arrangements. The house itself is absolutely gorgeous, a lovely example of Georgian builders sticking an elegant facade onto a medieval hall, and it has a lovely garden going all the way down to the river, from the end of which we could see into the still cordoned off section of Queen Elizabeth Park. Lucky man to have had such a place to retire to!
