Our Inspector's view
Sitting in 12 acres of beautiful countryside, this impressive country house provides spacious bedrooms, most with views over the attractive gardens, and all individually appointed with international features and unique works of art. Sustainability is at the heart of this Cotswolds manor house property. The kitchen runs entirely on renewable electricity, lighting & equipment upgraded which reduced consumption by 75%. Chef Niall Keating is CPD certified waste management trained & food waste is either composted & used in the gardens, or sent to an Anaerobic digestion plant to produce Bio-Gas & liquid fertiliser for the farming industry. Ongoing supply chain review & collaborations to further decarbonise the restaurant. Hyper local is key, their neighbours farm is organic and supplies them with beef. A local beekeeper farms 4 hives located in Whatley's garden. A fruit orchard was planted in 2019 on Earth Day. Their Kitchen Garden is fairly harvested for the menus. A choice of eating options are available under the direction of Executive Chef Niall Keating – Grey’s, a relaxed brasserie, The Dining Room, serving modern British cuisine with Asian influences, and there are outdoor dining spaces when the weather is fine. Guests might even like to take a hamper and a picnic rug and find a quiet spot in the grounds. The Loggia Barn is ideal for wedding ceremonies and the Aquarias Spa is magnificent.

About the area
A land shrouded in mystery, myth and legend, Wiltshire evokes images of ancient stone circles, white chalk horses carved into hillsides, crop circles and the forbidden, empty landscape of Salisbury Plain. To many M4 and A303 drivers heading out of London through the clutter of the Thames Valley, Wiltshire is where the landscape opens out and rural England begins.
Wiltshire’s charm lies in the beauty of its countryside. The expansive chalk landscapes of the Marlborough and Pewsey downs and Cranborne Chase inspire a sense of space and freedom, offering miles of uninterrupted views deep into Dorset, Somerset and the Cotswolds. Wiltshire’s thriving market towns and picturesque villages provide worthwhile visits and welcome diversions. Stroll through quaint timbered and thatched villages in the southern Woodford and Avon valleys and explore the historic streets of the stone villages of Lacock, Castle Combe and Sherston. Walk around Salisbury and discover architectural styles from the 13th century to the present and take time to visit the city’s elegant cathedral and fascinating museums. And if all of that isn’t enough, the county is also richly endowed with manor houses, mansions and beautiful gardens.
