Great Charfield House And Gardens by supersnappz16 Great Charfield House And Gardens by supersnappz16
Great Charfield, Wiltshire, England

History 

Great Chalfield Manor was built ca.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. In 1905 Major Robert Fuller restored and refurnished the house to its former glory. In 1943 he gave Great Chalfield Manor and Garden to the National Trust to care for it and to this day his grandson Robert Floyd and his family life in the manor.

Over the years several famous films and TV shows have been filmed at Great Chalfield, including 'The Other Boleyn Girl', 'Tess of the d'Ubervilles' and most recently it starred in 'Wolf Hall' as Austin Friars, Thomas Cromwell's house.

Gardens

The garden at Great Chalfield Manor is one of a kind. ‘Dreamlike’ and ‘magical’ are words used by visitors to describe it. Much thought goes into the design of the garden and the borders, all lovingly cared for by the donor family and their team.

Not only can you enjoy vistas, beautiful lawns and yew topiary; walk through the orchard where the grass stays long, discover waterfalls of pink roses climbing the walls of the medieval Manor, and take a walk to the spring-fed pond, surrounded by magnificent trees. Gardeners will find inspiration here, but also peace and quiet in lush surroundings.

I love how well old stone buildings blend in with the nature. The architects weren't even been trying for it and they nailed it anyway ;D
