  • Found this beautiful place when we stayed the night here 5 years ago through airBnB and now we always go visit when in malmesbury. Stunning Koi, stunning landscapes gardens and the river below...  more »
  • What a super, tranquil spot. Beautiful now but I should imagine even more spectacular in the Summer months. Also dog friendly, almost didn't visit as I had read somewhere that dogs were not allowed....  more »
  • Beautiful gardens. Abbey next door which was the real reason for my visit. It's an amazing building. Middle section still in tact and being used as a church. Live music being played by 3 piece band playing Christian music.
  • Well cared for. Inexpensive. You can spend a good few hours walking or sitting in lovely tranquil settings. Also dotted around are various sculptures. Can you spot them all.
