My wife and I spent a couple of days in Wiltshire in order to visit Lacock Abbey and a couple of other NT properties we were interested in. Lacock didn’t disappoint at all!

The house – a former nunnery founded in the 13th century but much altered over the years – still shows the architectural signs of its past, especially the Chaplain’s Room with its vaulted arches and roof, and the cloisters, used as a location for one of the Harry Potter films. We felt that this gave the house added interest.

Henry Fox Talbot, the former owner, was a pioneer in photography and at the entrance to the property there is a small museum devoted to him. We had a lovely stroll in the grounds before walking into Lacock Village, a typical English village with half-timbered houses, shops and pubs where we enjoyed our lunch.

All-in-all, one of the best NT properties we have seen!
