Belcombe is a stunning Grade I listed Georgian house situated in Bradford-on-Avon.
It was originally built in 1734 by John Wood the Elder, who was known for designing many of the finest buildings in Bath, such as The Circus and the North and South Parades.
The garden is registered by English Heritage as being of special historic interest.
Developed in the 18th Century in neo-classical ‘Picturesque’ style, the gardens and parkland contain the original features of a grotto, rotunda and a ruined ‘temple’, constructed during the same period as those at Stourhead.
The four acres of landscaped gardens include lawns, an ornamental pond with Koi carp, box and yew topiary and fine specimen trees.
Modern touches have been sympathetically introduced, with carefully placed sculptures, an infinity pool and terrace, a tennis court and a beautifully converted church barn. There are also six acres of woodland walks, a shell house and a walled garden incorporating roses, grasses and fruit, with views extending across the valley.
