Lytes Cary Manor

On Saturday we went to Lytes Cary Manor, which is a grade 1 listed property owned by the National Trust :)

The house is set in a nice landscaped area and it has been added to and modified during its lifetime, with sections dating from the 14th, 15th, 16th, 18th, and 20th centuries.

The house is large, but not too large, enabling it to retain a cosy feel that makes it seem like it would be a comfortable place to live ^^

There is a lot of nice decorative wood panelling throughout the house and it even has its own chapel connected on the side.

The gardens around the outside of the house are all separated into smaller features, and everything is very well looked after…they’re very nice to walk around in the sunshine :)

As well as the gardens, there are also 3 walking routes around the neighbouring grounds and fields which take between 20mins to 1 hour to complete (depending if you follow the longer or shorter routes).

We followed the woodland trail, which also has little play areas for children along it and little dens made on the side of the path. It was nice and quiet while we were walking through there….we seemed to have the trail to ourselves :)

There’s also a nice little cafe in the manor building which does a yummy cream tea ;P

    Thank you for the great info. My wife has always dreamed of going to Britain. If and when that comes true, I certainly suggest she include this place in her itinerary.
    Kind regards,

      I’m glad you liked it :)

      If she likes the look of Lytes Cary then it’s worth checking out some of the other properties owned by the National Trust, there are some really interesting places to visit….I’ve posted about some of them on here too ;)
