Last weekend after visiting Tintinhull Garden we went on to Montacute House, which is only 10 minutes away from Tintinhull :) https://spinner182.wordpress.com/2017/08/15/tintinhull-garden/
We last went to Montacute in 2015 and although we had a nice time there the weather was wet at that time, so this time it was nice to be able to see it on a brighter day. https://spinner182.wordpress.com/2015/10/27/montacute-house/
Inside this huge Elizabethan mansion there are many large impressive spaces, and there are a lot of very interesting Tudor paintings to view throughout the house :)
The Long Gallery up on the 2nd floor is still impressive on a repeat viewing, and I think on this 2nd visit to the house it was nice spotting details throughout the building which we had overlooked the 1st time.
With the weather outside being much drier and brighter than our last visit we were able to take our time walking around the gardens.
It’s a very nice easy place to walk around because most of it is flat, with just a few small sets of steps between some areas.
There were loads of sheep out grazing in the surrounding parklands this time, but we didn’t go out into the park…..maybe next time :P
