Stockton House is set in the tranquil Wylye Valley amongst the rolling downs of Wiltshire.
Although the original Elizabethan rooms retain their original splendour, the house underwent a three year renovation which ended in 2016, which has left the house with all the comforts that guests expect in the 21st century.
The beautiful private gardens offer plenty of spaces to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet while the squash court, tennis court and the stunning swimming pool are available for the more active guests. The area offers stunning walking and cycling routes from the gates of the house. Stockton has a renowned partridge shoot.
With nine en-suite bedrooms, Stockton House offers a beautiful setting for up to 18 people to spend a time relaxing in style and enjoying the English countryside. The Shoot Hall comfortably seats up to 24 people for dinner. After dinner you can curl up in the enormous sofas in the Great Chamber and admire the extraordinary Elizabethan ceilings while basking in the warmth of the log fire. In the summer the pool area is a wonderful tranquil sun trap, perfect for idling away sunny days.
At each Masterpiece Estate you will be welcomed by an engaging host, an expert in both the house and the area. This is your guide, your companion, the person who can advise you on activities and arrange each personalised day to your liking, as well as entertain you and your guests with tales of the extraordinary estate that is your home for the duration of your stay.
Clay pigeon shooting can be arranged in the grounds with tuition if necessary. Outside of the game shooting season we can also arrange a full simulated game day. Game shooting and stalking can be arranged in season.
The squash court was built in the 1930’s in the heyday of the sport’s popularity. It is perfect alternative to tennis on a drizzly day. There is a viewing gallery for spectators.
Time to swim
The swimming pool is 15 metres. Long enough for proper lengths, there is a counter swim machine built into the end of the pool if you want to swim without stopping.
Explore the nature
The house has 10 bikes which are available for the use of guests complete with helmets. There are several stunning routes from the house both off-road and on-road ranging from gentle to challenging hill climbs.
Stockton is surrounded by a variety of natural and historical sites. Stonehenge, with its amazing new visitor centre is only 9 miles away while the splendour of Georgian Bath is only a 30 minute drive.
