National Trust's Great Chalfield Manor & Garden

Wiltshire

It would be difficult to find a more beautiful medieval manor house in England than Great Chalfield. Set in the tranquil Wiltshire countryside and with seven acres of gardens, this ancient house has survived the five centuries since its building and appears much as it did in the 1470's, when it was commissioned for the Wiltshire landowner Thomas Tropenell.

Iford Manor Estate

Somerset

Iford Manor sits at the foot of the idyllic Frome river valley. Occupied since Roman times, the site was industrial in nature until the demise of the wool industry around the turn of the 18th century. The gardens were developed in the most-part by Harold Peto, who lived at Iford from 1899 until his death in 1933. The house and gardens sit within a farming estate run with a firm eye on conservation and ecological sustainability. Footpaths run the length of the valley providing beautiful walks through fields and along the river.

Horatio's Garden - Salisbury

Salisbury

"Designed by renowned garden designer Cleve West in 2012, Horatio’s Garden Salisbury is the first of a growing number of gardens to open at spinal treatment centres around the country. The gardens were inspired by Horatio Chapel, a 17 year old student who volunteered at the Duke of Cornwall Spinal Treatment Centre at Salisbury District Hospital. After talking to the patients Horatio realised they were craving somewhere to escape the clinical surrounds of the hospital and feel the sun on their face. Sadly, Chapel was killed on a school trip before he could see his idea come to fruition. But this garden was created in his name and the charity was formed with the aim of bringing a lush green haven to all of the UK’s spinal injury centres. From its hilltop position, the beautifully stewarded gardens in Salisbury offer views of Clarendon Palace and the rolling Wiltshire hills beyond. The garden is a reassuring presence throughout the seasons, whether you’re here for the first new shoots of spring, the high summer perennials or the swaying seed heads of Eryngium and Fennel in winter. This multisensory garden isn’t just a lifeline for patients, it’s also become a vital habitat for wildlife. More than 30 species of bird have been spotted flitting among the native hedges while the elephant hawk moth is a particularly exciting guest in the summer months. Whatever brings you to Horatio’s Garden Salisbury, the soft planting, curved limestone walls and calming sound of water are sure to offer some respite. "

Corsham Court

Corsham

With its manicured grounds, generous herbaceous borders and vast lake, the formal gardens of Corsham Court offer a pleasing introduction to the work of Capability Brown and his successor Humphry Repton, 18th-century landscape gardeners who shaped many of the parks we know and love today. The lovingly tended Old Rose Garden and restful waters of the Lily Pond garden are a sight to behold but it’s the mature trees that steal the show. As well as a majestic Sequoia, a 150-year-old Black Walnut and a grove of strikingly beautiful magnolias, there’s a sprawling Oriental Plane which was planted in the 1760s and has since grown to be the largest spreading tree in the UK. Of course, a visit to Corsham Court wouldn’t be complete without a wander around the Elizabethan era stately home and its collection of paintings, though we don’t blame you if you get distracted by those sweeping parkland views.
