All day (inc. lunch)

Barford Park is a Grade II* red-brick house originally built as a two-storey farmhouse. The house was remodelled around 1710 for the Jeanes family and an attic storey and Baroque side wings were added circa 1740. The interior is simple, albeit elegant, with period features such as panelling and cornices. The house was restored by the Stancomb family, who owned it from 1953 to 1987, and more recently by its current owners.

Hatch Court, in the parish of Hatch Beauchamp, is a Grade I-listed, Bath Stone, Palladian mansion built circa 1755 by John Collins, a wool merchant, to the designs of the gentleman architect Thomas Prowse. The house comprises a central two-storey block with a three-storey tower on each corner; single-storey quandrant wings dating from the early 19thcentury extend north-west and north-east from the main block. The south façade has a ground-floor loggia which forms the main entrance to the house. The interior contains significant mid 18th-century rococo plasterwork.
