Sheldon Manor

Chippenham, Wiltshire

Set in acres of beautiful English countryside and built on the foundations of a medieval village, Sheldon Manor, Wiltshire’s oldest inhabited Manor House. 

With its beautiful traditional roses, manicured lawns and specimen trees; is a wonderful escape from real life.

The estate, up a long tree lined drive way, comprises of the Manor House (available by separate negotiation for events). The Wing of the Manor and the four cottages (three interconnecting) are available to hire as a whole for large groups or individually.

Sheldon Manor is also ideal for parties, re-unions, special birthdays and anniversary events. Make your stay extra special by arranging catering and activities prior to your arrival - from one pot suppers and BBQs, to something a little more special; ritz style afternoon tea and croquet on the lawn, pool – side cocktails and canapés, or decadent three course affairs.

How about a vintage coach ride to the ancient nearby villages of Lacock and Castle Combe and relaxing afternoons being pampered by local beauticians who can come to the Manor.
