Littlecote House is a large Elizabethan country house and estate in the civil parishes of Ramsbury and Chilton Foliat, in the English county of Wiltshire, about 2+1⁄2 miles (4 km) northeast of the Berkshire town of Hungerford. The estate includes 34 hectares of historic parklands and gardens, including a walled garden dating from the 17th and 18th centuries. In its grounds is Littlecote Roman Villa.
A Grade I listed building, Littlecote House is now a hotel and leisure centre.

In open space at end of Littlecote drive. Open all the time. Ruins. Mosaic excellent undercover it's covered to protect it from October to May although you can see small part of the big picture but better in summer months. Ideal to visit if staying at Warners Littlecote House hotel in easy walking distance

Littlecote Roman Villa is, as the name suggests, the remains of an ancient Roman Britain villa in Littlecote Park beside the River Kennet. Mostly it is the outline of the walls in stone, but in one section thee remains a marvelous mostly-original (though somewhat restored) tiled mosaic floor; that's the section covered by the shelter. It's a little off to the side and out of the way, but that also means it isn't as likely to be overrun by the hordes. And the price (at least when we were there some years ago) is right (£0). The villa is on the grounds of the adjacent hotel, so if you wanted to spent the night or have a meal there, I expect they wouldn't object too strenuously. Check with them for terms and availability. Rain or shine you can come and explore, contemplating how things have changed in the many centuries since. As like as not that in those days your ancestors were slaves, or barbarians living in huts in the woods somewhere.
