Location is everything, but what if the location feels a thousand miles away from where it actually is?

Manor Farm is a Grade II-listed Queen Anne village house set in stunning walled gardens and grounds. Said walled gardens look like an idyllic plot in the South of France, but are in fact in Chippenham, Wiltshire.
