Cumberwell is believed to have links with the Doomsday book when Cumberwell Manor used to exist at the top of the Farmhouse Garden, until it burnt down – Rumoured to have been by a cigarette left alight by the drunken butler!!
Cumberwell Farm where the cottages are located has been in the James family since 1939. Originally and for 55 years it was a dairy farm until 1992 when the dairy cows were sold making way for a diversification into Cumberwell Park Golf Club. The original Great Cumberwell Farm and its buildings have not changed a great deal over the years and in fact we still farm over 300 acres of arable each year, crops including Wheat, Barley and Oilseed Rape.
The Cottages you can stay in have been converted from an old tythe barn, which has been restored with its original character in mind. Each cottage has taken its name from an original field on the farm, many of which have now been taken over by the golf course. The original tythe barn had many uses over the years.
Cumberwell Park Golf Course
In 1992, construction of an 18 hole golf course started on a large proportion of the farm land, and in 1994 Cumberwell Park Golf Club opened its doors. A further 9 holes were added in 1999 and in 2007 a 4th 9 holes opened – creating Wiltshire’s first 36 hole golf course. A further 9 hole par 3 course was opened in August 2016.
The clubhouse has a great reputation for Sunday lunches whilst the Wraxall Brasserie has a varied menu which you are most welcome to sample during your stay.
Wraxall Bar & Brasserie
The Wraxall is a lovely light contemporary space, constructed with a traditional oak frame and beautiful limestone floor. From here there are views over the golf course and also far reaching views of the surrounding Wiltshire countryside. It is the ideal spot to enjoy a relaxing tea or coffee, breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Children are very welcome here and there is a menu available for the little ones. Outside there is a large patio area which is the perfect place for an alfresco drink or meal on a sunny day or evening.
