Romantic and magical. Explore blissful gardens, take a dip in the pool, seek out ponds, orchards and a meadow. Cottages are dreamy for two

Wiltshire’s oldest inhabited manor house is a beauty, Grade I-listed with 13th-century porch and 15th-century chapel. In the renovated stable yard are four soft-brick cottages with garden views; elegant but not precious they are dreamy for two... or one party together. Slip round the side to The Wing with its stunning stained glass and lovely beamed bedrooms. Play hide and seek in the blissful gardens, take a dip in the romanesque pool. Discover a perfect, old-fashioned rose garden for summer and an arboretum of exotic trees for autumn: Caroline and Ken are committed to maintaining the plans laid down and executed so brilliantly by Major Martin Gibbs in the 1950s. Find newt-filled ponds, orchards, ancient yews, medieval grain store, sunken garden, a potager for the house and a meadow, all joined together by stone walls and meandering paths. Roses cascade around windows, creating delicious scents in May and June; below the terrace is a wide path leading to a beautiful old stone love-seat. It is all deeply romantic and perfect for the bride and groom, and when there isn’t a wedding you get it all to yourselves!
