Montacute's Easter Escapades

Looking for something a little different this Easter? Look no further than Montacute House.

Follow the winding stream through Mill Copse, splash through the puddles and seek out the tree swings. Don’t forget to pack the wellies as you take up the challenge of ascending St Michael’s Hill at Montacute this Easter. Your little explorers can investigate the sights and smells of the local wildlife, looking closely for those first signs of spring as you make your way up the winding paths of this ancient landscape, which was formally a Norman motte and bailey castle (the earthworks still remain). For those who conqueror the challenge there will be a small prize at the West Gate, as well some of the best views in Somerset.

For those of you with little ones, you might like to take on the garden trail, which is ideal for parents with push chairs and toddlers. Spot the geese proudly taking care of their Easter eggs.

It is likely that the car park will be very full, so do leave plenty of time to find a space and please try and park as close to your neighbour as possible.  There may also be slight queues to get into the house - it is a sensitive, elderly building and can only cope with so many people at any one time.
