Originally part of Lord Bath's Longleat estate, some of the Listed Building dates from 1669; in 1919 the property was purchased by Lord Heytesbury who lived here till 1949. Twelve months of sympathetic restoration have rejuvenated the property to its earlier splendour.
Crockerton House, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Wylye Valley only 20 miles from Bath, Salisbury and Stonehenge, makes an ideal base for exploring Wiltshire, Somerset and Dorset.
We have three spacious bedrooms on the first floor overlooking the gardens. Full of character, each room also meets the needs of today's traveller with flat screen TV, complimentary wireless broadband Internet access, radio/alarm, hairdryer, ironing facilities, hospitality tray, flowers, fresh fruit and homemade biscuits. Modern bathrooms are equipped with large fluffy towels, bathrobes and toiletries.
Enter through the hall past the Georgian grandfather clock into the handsome drawing room where you can relax amid family antiques and views of the gardens and the magnificent Longleat Forest. Afternoon tea is served in the drawing room or garden on the day of arrival.
Optional candle-lit dinner from Monday to Thursday or eat out in a country pub. After a good night's sleep, wander downstairs to begin your day with a delicious breakfast.
We use fresh local produce, organic meat, chicken and eggs, farmhouse cheeses, and freshly ground coffee. In season, fruit and vegetables from the garden are regularly served. Cooking on an Aga, Enid produces a large range of homemade foods including jam, bread, cakes and ice cream.
The house is set in one and a third acres of glorious gardens overlooking meadows leading down to the River Wylye. The grounds provide a sanctuary for birds and wildlife with towering coniferous trees, tall hedges, sweeping lawns, herbaceous borders, orchard and kitchen garden.
