Great Chalfield Manor and Gardens (NT)

We have been having some glorious spring days, and although the nights are still cold (we even had  some frost the night before the last ), 
this has been just the right weather for days out; at last!
So, armed with a picnic, we went to visit a couple of National Trust properties; although not very far from us (just the other side of Bradford on Avon), somehow we never got around to visiting before.

Many NT houses featured in various TV dramas, and so did this one - 
Wolf Hall, Poldark - just to name a couple.

We gave the guided tour of the house a miss (we can always come back for it another time), preferring to enjoy the lovely spring gardens.

  1. I have never visited Great Chalfield Manor either so I shall definitely make a point of going soon. Lovely pictures as always. My knee is now really restricting my mobility so a visit would have to be after my op in late June. The gardens must have been glorious. Thank you for The closeup of the horse chestnut blossom. When I was a child we had one growing very close to the house. It has been my favourite tree ever since.

  2. Radka, je to krásne a ďakujem ti za zdielanie! Ja sa tam nikdy nedostanem a tak aspoň vidím tvojimi očami a objektívom :-)

  3. Such a lovely old place, thank you for sharing your photos of the delightful spring gardens. Always wanted to live in a house like that. (but not the housework!!)

  4. Looks like a beautiful house to visit and the gardens are stunning. xx

  5. How beautiful! What a great day out for you.
