Originally a Jacobean house built for the Strode family and ‘modernised’ in the Palladian style around 1735, it has been a cherished family home for 400 years. The present owners moved here in 2005 and have carefully renovated the interior, exterior and gardens using traditional methods where possible. They have an extensive collection of contemporary art. Please note the tour includes a garden walk with steep steps, uphill for 100yds and then level ground. The group will be shown round by the owners and festive refreshments celebrating the three principal periods of the house: Jacobean, Georgian and Victorian will be provided


This event has been organised by the Wiltshire Fundraising Committee Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
