Visiting as a group

Lytes Cary House in early autumn

An intimate manor house and the former home of medieval herbalist Henry Lyte. The manor’s fascinating features include the 14th-century chapel and 15th-century Great Hall. In the 20th century it was rescued from dereliction by Sir Walter Jenner and bequeathed to the National Trust in 1948. Its Arts & Crafts-style garden is an inspiring combination of outdoor rooms, topiary, statues and herbaceous borders.

Lytes Cary Manor is ideal for a morning or an afternoon visit, perfectly situated just off the A303. Your group can easily spend two to three hours exploring the house and discovering all of the garden 'rooms'.
