“Majestic Parkland”

Dinton Park & Philipps House
Ranked #53 of 77 things to do in Salisbury
Attraction details
Reviewed 13 October 2013

The small Nadder valley village of Dinton is remarkably well served for attractions, with not just one but two NT properties. Philipps House is a tenanted property and is only open two days a week. The house itself is a neo classical mansion with an imposing two storey portico. Its chief delight lies in its setting in ancient parkland, enclosed by mature trees, a small lake and rolling terrain. Within Dinton Park is a smaller Queen Anne mansion, Hyde House, with its exquisite gardens tantalisingly glimpsed from the other side of the ha-ha which encloses it. There are few other facilities here, but the discerning visitor will overlook that for the sheer beauty on offer.

I generally go there once a year, to see the firework display on November 5th. That I believe is the most interesting event, but I haven't particularly visited other parts in depth.

A Secluded house in the middle of a large park. The house is also still lived in which made it very interesting to walk around and see how it is still used. We arrived late on a cold and wet afternoon and the National Trust people had left so we were shown around the public areas of the home by the current tenant. Worth it if you are in the area, but not sure I would go out of my way to see it.
