Somerset the home of the finest houses & garden's

Along with Abbeys, Priories and Castles usually come superb gardens and Somerset claims its fair share of these as well as Walled Gardens, Botanic Gardens, Cottage Gardens and even Secret Gardens. These wonderful retreats have lakes, parterres, cascades, follies and in one case a viaduct. Several are designed by world famous names.
You can find some of England’s finest historic houses and gardens. Fans of costume dramas should recognise them as they are favourites among TV producers and Film makers. We have Elizabethan Montacute House with the longest Long Gallery and Barrington Court, a Tudor manor house with a garden inspired by Gertrude Jekyll. Both are owned by the National Trust.
Jekyll’s magic touch can be detected at Hestercombe, 50 acres of quintessential Somerset gardens, near Taunton where Georgian Landscape Victorian Shrubbery and Edwardian Formality are all represented.
Another fine garden is at East Lambrook where Margery Fish brought her expert plantsmanship to bear on a cottage garden or you could visit the small but beautifully formed garden at Tintinhull.
