Beautiful Roman building remains and mosiacs. Good for Warner’s Holidays putting roof over it, but birds still nesting and pooping from roof beams!! Please go extra mile and put netting across beams.

Hidden... literally. The mosaic is currently under a green tarpaulin. You have to kneel down and try to squint underneath, and so you cant really get much of n idea of its original impact. Which is a great pity.

I first visited Littlecote House and the amazing Roman mosaic in 1985/6 when Peter de Savary owned the house and it was quite the national attraction. Went today realising I lived quite close. The property is now owned by Warner Holidays, but you can certainly...More

Well worth a visit even if it is on a rainy and chilly Saturday afternoon. Close your eyes and just imagine the people who must have lived in this once grandiose villa, wonder what they were planning for the evening? 😉
