About Lytes Cary

Have the whole of the west wing of Lytes Cary Manor to yourself in this luxury stay.

Stay in a house so well-preserved, you’ll feel as though you have stepped back in time. This extravagant seven-bedroom stay occupies the west wing of the 14th-century house, Lytes Cary Manor, where dark wood-panelled walls, fine period furnishings and grand bedrooms run throughout. Perfect for those special family get-togethers, the house has multiple sitting rooms, a formal dining area and a private terraced garden.  

You’ll be overlooking the intimate Arts and Crafts-style gardens of the manor, which you’re invited to explore ‘after-hours’ when all the visitors have left. Walk even further through the extensive parkland which will lead you along the River Cary. 

A short drive away is the mythical town of Glastonbury. Wander through its quaint streets, peruse the town’s eclectic shops and scale Glastonbury’s famous Tor. Montacute House and Barrington Court are both within a 30 minutes’ drive from here.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
