When walking into the celebrated Cathedral Close in Salisbury, visitors step back into a past world, and on entering Mompesson House, featured in the film Sense and Sensibility, the feeling of leaving the modern world behind is deepened. The main features of this Queen Anne house are the plasterwork, period furniture and oak staircase. In addition, the Turnbull collection of 18th-century drinking glasses is of national importance. The walled garden has a pergola and traditionally planted herbaceous borders.
