Notice: There is filming going on in the manor house throughout April. The guided tour times in the handbook do not apply during this time, but there will be tours when possible, on an ad-hoc basis, working around the filming schedule. We apologise for the disruption but hope you will still come and enjoy the gardens.

Charming 15th-century manor house with Arts and Crafts garden

This beautiful medieval manor sits in peaceful countryside.Cross the upper moat, passing barns, gatehouse and delightful parish church to enjoy fine oriel windows and the soldiers, griffons and monkey adorning the rooftops.

Romantic gardens offer terraces, topiary houses, gazebo, lily pond, roses and views across the spring-fed fishpond.

You are welcome to visit the Parish Church when you visit (not National Trust), donations are welcome.

Great Chalfield Manor House is home to the donor family tenants, who manage the house on behalf of the Trust. Find out more about life at the manor in their dog blog.
