A fine Victorian country house created by one of England's richest commoners, William Gibbs, who built his fortune on fertiliser.
Spiralling turrets and pinnacles adorn the roof, ornate stone carvings and church-like windows complete the Gothic look, giving the feel of a mysterious, fairytale mansion. Beyond the grandeur that visitors of the Gibbs family would have seen, you will also discover a family home and the evidence of their changing fortunes.
Terraced lawns give way to spacious parkland filled with hundreds of trees collected by the family, and a glorious walled kitchen garden beyond. The rolling Somerset hills in the distance create an atmospheric backdrop at any time of the year.
The estate and gardens are open every day. The house is open Friday to Wednesday.
Please note: At weekends and during busy periods access to the house is by timed ticket (limited numbers). Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
