Brockhampton Estate

Website: National Trust
Telephone: 01885 482077
Brockhampton was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1946 and is made up of 400 hectares (1,000 acres) of farmland and 280 hectares (700 acres) of mixed woodland. The Estate is home to a rich variety of wildlife, including the dormouse, buzzard and raven. There are miles of walks through the park and woodland, featuring ancient oaks and beech, the picturesque Lawn Pool, and various sculptures which depict parts of the history of Brockhampton and the local area. At the heart of the Estate lies Lower Brockhampton, a romantic timber-framed manor house dating back to the late 1300s. The house is surrounded by a moat and is entered via a charming timber-framed gatehouse. There is also an interesting ruined chapel.

Great Coxwell Barn

Website: National Trust
Telephone: 01793 762209

The Great Barn in Great Coxwell village is the sole surviving part of a thriving 13th-century grange that once provided vital income to Beaulieu Abbey.

It is an impressive reminder of the skills of Gothic carpenters and the wealth and influence of the great monastic orders. William Morris, one of the Barn's most ardent admirers, called it 'unapproachable in its dignity'.

The Barn was built of Cotswold rubble-stone walling, with a Cotswold slate roof. There are several slit windows and on the outside are small, square putlog holes in which mason's poles were placed during construction.

Hailes Abbey

Website: National Trust
Telephone: 01242 602398

Founded in 1246 and once a celebrated pilgrimage site, the abbey now lies in ruins. Remains of the dramatic cloister arches survive and there is a small museum.

Richard Earl of Cornwall (brother of Henry III) was in danger of shipwreck and to thank God for his safe delivery, he built a Cistercian Abbey at Hailes. Cistercians always built their abbeys well away from towns (e.g. Fountains, Rievaulx, Tintern etc). Isabel Countess of Gloucester, the widow of Gilbert de Clare, Lord of the Manor of Tewkesbury, had married Richard after a period of mourning for Gilbert. It was a disastrous marriage, and when she died Richard tore her heart out and sent it to the Abbot of Tewkesbury, telling him to bury it at Tewkesbury as it had always been there.

Lodge Park & Sherborne Estate

Website: National Trust
Telephone: 01451 844130

Situated on the picturesque Sherborne Estate in the Cotswolds, Lodge Park was created in 1634 by John 'Crump' Dutton. Inspired by his passion for gambling and banqueting, it is a unique survival of what would have been called a grandstand, with its deer course and park. It was the home of Charles Dutton, 7th Lord Sherborne, until 1983 when he bequeathed his family's estate to the National Trust.

The Sherborne Estate is 1,650 hectares (4,000 acres) of rolling countryside with views down to the River Windrush. Much of the village of Sherborne is owned by the Trust, including the post office and shop, school and social club. There are walks for all ages around the estate, which includes the restored and working water meadows.

Woodchester Park is a beautiful, secluded valley near Stroud in the Cotswolds.
