Arriving for a stay at the villa feels like taking a step back in time, to the more romantic medieval world of our imagination, to a house filled with stained glass and stone archways, surrounded by rose gardens and meadows.
The extensive grounds that surround the house are distinguished by an ornate outdoor swimming pool with fountain, as well as a chapel, a love folly, terraced lawns, a wild flower meadow, a pond and an orchard.
Guests can practice their cooking skills with organic food ordered from the local farm shop, laze in the gardens or relax in the privacy of the villa. Set between Chippenham and Bath, this enchanting country manor is the perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds and the West Country, with plenty of ruined castles and abbeys, ancient villages and market towns, manor houses and gardens to explore and horse riding available on request through the owners.
