This lovely village in Wiltshire takes you back in time. Cottages and houses are just as in the olden times, and one feels charmed as you walk around. Many period dramas have been shot in the village and abbey, including Pride and Predjudice, Harry Potter, Downton Abbey, and more. The Abbey itself is fascinating too. It was founded in the 13th century, by Augustinian nuns, but later bought by Sir William Sharrington, and few changes were made to the cloisters and monastic buildings themselves. It is well worth a visit to see this lovely house and village.

    It was not very busy when we visited, because we did not go at the week-end. It can be busy if it is a bank-holiday or weekend. I recommend about an hour for the Abbey itself, but there are other things in the grounds like a painting exhibition, and the gardens, so for all that perhaps an hour and a half.

    Was it very busy when you visited? I've heard that the village can be a bit of a honey pot and attract a lot of visitors.

    How long do you recommend for visiting the Abbey?
