It would be difficult to find a more beautiful medieval manor house in England than Great Chalfield. Set in the tranquil Wiltshire countryside and with seven acres of gardens, this ancient house has survived the five centuries since its building and appears much as it did in the 1470's, when it was commissioned for the Wiltshire landowner Thomas Tropenell.

 

Great Chalfield today is an Edwardian restoration of the beautiful medieval Manor created for Robert Fuller, Electrical Engineer, by Sir Harold Brakspear FSA, Architect.  Robert Fuller instructed Brakspear to follow the Gothic Revival drawings made and published by Pugin's friend Thomas Larkins Walker architect in 1837.

 

The Arts & Crafts gardens were designed by Alfred Parsons RA to complement the Manor. Robert Fuller married Mabel Chappell of the music publishing family in 1911, in 1943 they gave Great Chalfield with an endowment and their furniture collection to the National Trust. It is now the home of their grandson Robert Floyd, Patsy his wife and family, who manage the property for the National Trust.
