Lovely house, with stupendous gardens, designed by Capability Brown. House is still lived by the owners, so not all of it is possible to see. However what is possible to see, is well worth the entrance fee. Lots of paintings, many notable pieces of furniture....More

Thanks for this enthusiastic review. The car park is in Church Square which is by the front gates and not quite 'right in front of the house.' Corsham Court has been open to the public for over 200 years - it started at the time...More

Perhaps better known for its paintings, which we enjoyed, there was also superb English furniture, wonderful plasterwork, relatively (compared to gardens) quite rare Capability Brown interiors, some fine historic lighting (one of our particular interests), a delightful 'Strawberry Hill' Gothick bath house and spring flowers,...More

Time available to visit gardens only which were magical. Our welcome was warm and friendly. Our glimpse of interior treasures was enticing and I so hope to visit again to explore this gem.

Would have loved to visit but the patronising rude tone of the man on the gate out us off bothering. He acted like he really didn't want to be there, or welcome any visitors - great shame as the frontage of the house looks magnificent.

The member of staff in question is not rude. I find it odd that such a low rating should be given by someone who writes that they didn't visit the property.

If going you need to be a fan of the paintings on display. In the house there is not much more to see. Grounds would be nice on a sunny dayMore

In the Picture Gallery there are four very large and grand mirrors and marble-topped tables designed specially for the room by Robert Adam. The deorated plasterwork ceiling of this room is stunning. James Lees-Milne gave the opinion that this is one of the great rooms...More

Very expensive entry fee for what you get - walking through dark rooms with unspectacular paintings (I have degrees in art history and have worked for 2 museums). The few benches in the garden look as if they would collapse if you sat on them....More

This is hardly a fair description. The Picture Gallery contains original works by several famous artists, such as Van Dyck, Carlo Dolci, Sofonisba Anguissola and Guercino. The Lippi Annunciation in the Cabinet Room is one of a handful of the master's works in private ownership....More

Not sure as it was free for me as a member of HHA. Think it is between £5 to £10.
