Mompesson House is a Queen Anne townhouse in the heart of Salisbury’s Cathedral Close with a homely atmosphere and welcoming proportions. Highlights include the magnificent plasterwork, fine period furniture and the Turnbull collection of English eighteenth century drinking glasses. It’s easy to imagine living here as you walk down the graceful oak staircase or relax on a window seat.
The hidden and tranquil garden is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Salisbury. The garden tea-room offers light bites, teas, coffees and locally baked cakes. There is also a shop in the courtyard that has a range of gifts for you and your home.
