A private visit to Great Chalfield Manor House and Garden, nr Bradford upon Avon.
Cost will be £7 for NT members – £17 non NT members – to include house tour and refreshments.
Great Chalfield Manor was built around 1465 by Thomas Tropenell, a wealthy business man who built and acquired several large estates during his time. At the heart of the house lies the Hall, flanked by unusually symmetrical gable cross wings and oriel windows. Over the years the different owners adapted and changed the manor, with the Great Hall turned into a farm house. In1905 Major Robert Fuller restored and refurnished the house to its former glory. The house has been the set of many recent films and TV series.
The garden that surrounds the house present vistas, beautiful lawns and yew topiary as well as an orchard where the grass stays long, waterfalls of pink roses climbing the walls of the medieval Manor, and the spring-fed pond, surrounded by magnificent trees. The roses should be in their glory when we visit.
We will be served tea and home-made cake in the Great Hall by the owner Patsy Floyd during our visit.
