Focus on: Stately Homes and Horticultural Gems in Wiltshire

Whether you are staying at our luxury bed and breakfast, Crockerton House, in the south or the extraordinarily beautiful Dauntsey Park House in the north of the county, Wiltshire is a county of breathtaking natural beauty and home to a world class collection of beautiful stately homes and horticultural gems.

Stourhead's harmonic vistas - especially the classic view of the Turf Bridge, lake and Pantheon on the opposite shore - seem to epitomise the county as a whole. This outstanding stately home, one of Wiltshire's finest 18th-century landscaped gardens, is a mix of formal and informal features. And at Stourhead's heart lies a Palladian mansion filled with glittering furnishings and object d'art.

 At Bowood House and Gardens, master landscaper 'Capability' Brown created a flowing mix of woodlands and lawns sloping down to a lake, overlooked by the formal terraces of an imposing stately home. Bowood has an all-round appeal, for set amongst its woods is an imaginatively designed Adventure Playground for younger visitors.

Longleat is a beautiful stately home in Wiltshire and also attracts a family audience. The house, seat of the Marquess of Bath, is surrounded by magnificent grounds that again bear the mark of industrious 18th-century landscaper 'Capability' Brown.

Wilton House is another stately home in Wiltshire. Here, the magnificent 450-year-old house - seen in films such as Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice - stands amongst parklands, woodlands and water gardens.

Lydiard House and Park near Swindon is a Georgian jewel. With its formal parkland, pasture, beautiful woodland walks, avenues and lake, it still retains the grand design of its 18th-century heyday.

The Larmer Tree gardens in the south of the county were originally designed as pleasure grounds for 'public enlightenment and entertainment' and are recognised by English Heritage as a garden of national importance. 

Summer is upon us. Book your luxury bed and breakfast in Wiltshire and enjoy its magnificent collection of houses and gardens.
