Great Chalfield Manor, near Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire

Good things often come in small packages and this 15th century manor house with its tranquil Arts & Crafts garden is no exception. It won’t take up too much time but if you're out and about exploring near Bath or Bradford on Avon do go and see the topiary houses and wander around the spring fed pond and through the beautiful rose garden. The house is tenanted so they only do guided tours here, which take about 45 minutes, with tickets available at the reception. Tours are Tuesday to Thursday on the hour from 11am to 4pm, allowing an hour for lunch at 1pm, and on Sunday from 2pm-4pm hourly. There is free parking at the entrance and loos on site.
