Built in the late 16th century by wealthy merchant Sir Edward Phelips, Montacute House is a true masterpiece of Elizabethan architecture. The property features intricate stone carvings, ornate plasterwork, and stunning stained-glass windows, all of which have been carefully preserved over the centuries.

Visitors to Montacute House can explore the magnificent Great Hall, which features a stunning hammer beam ceiling and a collection of antique furniture and artwork. There are also a number of other rooms to explore, including the Long Gallery, which is over 170 feet long and features a fascinating collection of portraits.

In addition to the stunning architecture and artwork, Montacute House is also set in beautifully landscaped grounds that offer plenty of opportunities for a leisurely stroll. Visitors can explore the charming walled garden, which is filled with colourful blooms and fragrant herbs, or enjoy a picnic on the expansive lawns.

Located just a short drive from the charming town of Yeovil, Montacute House is a perfect destination for anyone who wants to step back in time and experience the grandeur and elegance of Elizabethan England.
