There aren’t many places that allow you to strip off and enjoy grounds and the scenery but Abbey House in Wiltshire is one such place. Abbey House Gardens is a country house garden in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, England, covering 5 acres. Privately owned, the gardens—but not the house itself—are open to the public seven days a week from late March until late October. It is one of the main tourist attractions in England’s oldest town.Abbey House dates from the 16th century, built on 13th century foundations, with some evidence of a substantial house on the site as early as the 11th century; in the ‘basement’ there also is a Saxon arch.It has been extensively renovated and extended since, particularly in Tudor times.
