Join Holidays & Cruises Travel Club on this Day Trip to enjoy a cruise on the Kennet & Avon Canal aboard the Barbara Mclellan before a visit to the impressive Iford Manor.

The Barbara McLellan trip boat is based at the wharf in Bradford on Avon, just above the lock. The boat has seated at tables and has an open bow area where passengers can sit out and enjoy the weather and the views. There is a licensed bar on board, selling tea, coffee, soft drinks and alcoholic drinks plus a small range of bar snacks (crisps, nuts, biscuits, chocolate bars and cakes). There are toilets on board.

The Iford valley has been occupied since Roman times and the manor house sits idyllically by the Frome river in the steep-sided valley. Iford Manor is mediaeval in origin, the classical facade being added in the eighteenth century when the hanging woodlands above the garden were planted.

The Grade 1 Italianate garden at the Manor is famous for its tranquil beauty and was designed by the architect and landscape gardener Harold Ainsworth Peto who lived here from 1899 to 1933. A unique and romantic hillside garden, it is characterised by steps, terraces, sculpture and magnificent rural views and is open to the public from April to October.
