  • An interesting old house, and great if you like art. The guides are very well-informed about the history. The upstairs long gallery is an especially impressive space, well worth the walk up two flights of stairs.
  • A beautiful place to visit. The guided tour is a must thing to do. So many interesting facts on the house. All staff were friendly and the coconut flapjack at the cafe was truly amazing.
  • Lots to do and see, very helpful well informed guides had a lovely chat with a lady dressed in period costume about how they were made and worn. Cafe food and drink delicious. Doggy Ice cream was on offer in the shop quite a revelation. Beautiful grounds. Children and disabled well catered for. Wonderful day out.
  • Lovely house and gardens. There is plenty of history to this place.The long gallery has an amazing selection of portraits. There is also an on site cafe that serves hot and cold food with generous portions. Whilst there a walk around the village and beautifully kept church is a must.
  • Montacute house is a charming take on a traditional country mansion found in countrysides all over the UK. Montacute house offers a experience similar to none other stately home, the house gives leeway to dogs in any section this allows dog walkers to enjoy a fantastic experience. As well as this the house is a joy to endure as spiralling staircases and large airy rooms set a tone of a cozy and welcoming mansion. The cafe offers delicious scones and the gigantic estate is a whole other experience! All in all, do visit Montacute House for a joyful day out in the breezy sun! 😀
