Stay in the grounds of the Lytes Cary estate of in this pretty Victorian cottage. It’s complete with its own private garden and a cosy log-burner.

Stroll around the grounds of the medieval manor, which you’re invited to explore ‘after-hours’ when all the visitors have left. Walk even further through the extensive parkland which will lead you along the River Cary.

No two days are the same across these three beautiful counties; from Wiltshire's dreamy downland and the stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge, Dorset's coastal beauty and bucolic charms, and the wilds of Exmoor and Quantocks in Somerset. Their wide open spaces and historical sites draws people back again and again.

    Would recommend

    We had a great time as there was plenty of space for adults and children alike and the house was very comfortable and well equipped. We had a relaxing, lovely time. Would recommend highly to all.

    Lovely location

    The location of the cottage was lovely and rural. Being able to walk up to the main house and allotments was wonderful. There were plenty of NT properties in close proximity to enjoy - Tintinull and Montachute - and the weather was glorious!
