CHASTLETON, GL56 0SU
Built between 1607 and 1612, by a prosperous wool merchant, this is one of England's finest and most complete Jacobean houses. Chastleton House is filled with a mixture of rare and everyday objects, furniture and textiles maintaining the atmosphere of this 400-year-old home. The gardens have a typical Elizabethan and Jacobean layout with a ring of topiary, two croquet lawns and a kitchen garden. The National Trust has focussed on conserving rather than restoring the house and garden, reflecting an atmosphere of romantic decline. There is no tea room or shop, and all entries are on a timed ticket basis. See website for details.
