TROUT BEHIND THE WALLED GARDEN
The Manor at Upavon, four miles south of Pewsey and 11 from Marlborough in Wiltshire, has more than eight acres of grounds through which flows the Avon. Listed grade II, this thatched house is thought to date from the 17th century and provides drawing, sitting and dining rooms, a main bedroom with a bathroom, three other ensuite bedrooms, three further double bedrooms and a bathroom. A cottage, which forms part of a courtyard, has a sitting room and two bedrooms and there is a separate games room. Outside are partially walled gardens and paddocks extending to 8.5 acres, and double-bank fishing rights.
