Sixteen miles from Whatley Manor and almost entirely owned by the National Trust, preserved as a medieval village is the village of Lacock. It’s easy to see why Lacock has been featured in many period dramas including the magical ‘Harry Potter’ films – with the limewashed, half-timbered and stone houses offering the perfect backdrop. The houses are lived in and it’s worth exploring the shops in the centre of the village including a crafts co-operative. Do visit the magnificent Lacock Abbey and Fox Talbot Museum.
Set in the beautiful Cotswold countryside near Malmesbury, Whatley Manor Hotel & Spa is a beautifully restored 19th century Grade II listed Cotswold manor house hotel with 15 rooms and eight suites, all individual in style and design and featuring Bang & Olufsen sound and vision.
