An immaculately restored Grade II former hunting lodge.
Hillmarton Manor is a quintessential former hunting lodge. Handsome and very well appointed, the fine late Georgian architecture is augmented by a particularly elegant early 20th century addition, giving the look and feel of a much larger country house.
The current owners have created a beautifully appointed and most comfortable family home. The house was fully restored to the highest standard in 2013 and is presented in a superb condition throughout.
From the bell tower to the walled garden there are a host of wonderful features to enjoy.
Sporting activities in the area include rugby at Bath Rugby Club, hunting with the Avon Vale and golf at Monkton Park Golf Club. A wide range of schools are available in the area including St Mary's and St Margarets's Calne, Malborough College, Dauntsey's at Margaret Lavington and Pinewood Prep School.
