Corsley House Open Garden Day
Sunday 18 July 2021
Corsley House, near Longleat, started life as a picturesque farmhouse in the early 18th century, resembling a fairy tale castle with its leaded windows and stone turrets. In 1812 the prosperous Barton family hired the renowned Bath Architect John Pinch the elder to add a substantial Greek revival addition lending the house a unique character with one entrance feeling much older than the other.
Most of the outbuildings at Corsley House have been unaltered including a lovely apple store with its original interior and a listed grain store built on staddle stones. The real gem of the garden is the Walled Garden with its spectacular view of Cley Hill. The garden, which has been returned to its former glory, would have kept the family and staff substantially self-sufficient all year long. A new addition to the grounds is the wave lawn which undulates along the Georgian side of the house.
For the first time in decades Corsley House is opening its gardens to the public. Come and step back in Time on Sunday 18th July, a chance to see the vernacular Kitchen Garden outbuildings and to imagine how it once was. Guided tours of the gardens, Frome’s Rye Bakery’s Woodfired Pizzas, a Pimm’s Bar, Tea and Coffee, Children’s entertainment and much more.

All proceeds to go the Churches of Corsley and Chapmanslade.
