Corsham Court is a privately owned house and gardens in the pretty little town of Corsham in Wiltshire. It is owned by the Meuthen family and has done since 1747 although the house is much older in parts. It has gardens and parklands designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown which sweep around the property and go on for 350 acres. A visit was in order to see the formal gardens, enjoy the parklands and visit the house which displays an extensive art collection. We visited on the May bank holiday but it was not busy. It’s the sort of place that you could visit for half a day and either enjoy wandering around Corsham visiting the Alms houses and school room or combine it with a visit to nearby Lacock.
I haven’t posted a roundup post for the old house garden for a while because we have been busy creating a rose garden in the middle section of the old house garden.

At the weekend we were able to take a visit to Middlewick House in Corsham, Wiltshire. This beautiful house is owned by Pink Floyd’s drummer, Nick Mason and his family. It was once owned by Camilla, Duchess of Cambridge.
Nick opens his house for charity for a weekend in June and as we have never been, we thought we go and take a look! Hubbie came too but we left the children and Dottie at home this time.

During half term, my teenagers and I went to to Iford Manor to see the gardens of Harold Peto. I think my children were humoring me but it was so nice to have their company!
