Chastleton, Moreton-in-Marsh, Gloucestershire, GL56 0SU
Establishment Photo
Chastleton House is one of England's finest and most complete Jacobean houses. It is filled not only with a mixture of rare and everyday objects, furniture and textiles collected since its completion in 1612, but also with the atmosphere of 400 years of continuous occupation by one family. The gardens have a typical Elizabethan and Jacobean layout with a ring of fascinating topiary at their heart and it was here in 1865 that the rules of modern croquet were codified. Since acquiring the property, the Trust has concentrated on conserving it rather than restoring it to a pristine state.

Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 6PF

'Beautifully kept, the garden is full of romance and excitement' (The Good Gardens Guide) RODMARTON MANOR is the supreme example of a house built and all its furniture made according to Arts and Crafts ideals and was one of the last country houses to be built and furnished in the old traditional style. When everything was done by hand with local stone, local timber and local craftsmen. The Cotswold furniture is superbly constructed with very distinctive features. In particular the grain of the timber, the inlays and the way the pieces are put together are all works of art. There is beautiful painted pottery, ironwork and needlework. You won't see anything like this anywhere else in the world. Much of the garden is negotiable by wheelchair.
