Pocket Guide: United Kingdom Lytes Cary Manor Hotels

Lytes Cary Manor is one of those grand old English country houses that litter the landscape, privately owned for many years until eventually taken into the tender loving care of the National Trust and opened to the public. This particular one was lived in continuously by the same family for half a millennium, from the 13th Century, and guests at Somerset hotels or B&Bs in the Somerton area should not miss out on the chance to visit this beautiful site.

Somerset Hotels for Lytes Cary Manor and Gardens

The Lyte family lived in this impressive old manor for 500 years. One of them was the early botanist Sir Henry Lyte, whose 1578 work Niewe Herball, or a new history of plants, had a great influence at the time. The manor's main building and the chapel were started in 1343, with the Great Hall being added in 1450 and the buildings of the quadrangle in 1535. If you're staying at a B&B or hotel in this part of Somerset you'll find that Lytes Cary Manor makes a good destination for a day's outing, as there are plenty of scenic walks and the house is full of period interest.

Lytes Cary Manor from Your Somerset Hotel

After the Lyte family left in 1755 amidst financial problems the manor was occupied by a series of tenant farmers until it was bought in 1907 by Sir Walter Jenner. When he arrived he found a cider press in the Great Hall, agricultural machinery in the Great Parlour and a carpenter's workshop in the Little Parlour. Jenner restored the house to its present style, circa late 17th century, also adding a west wing, and this is what visitors encounter today when they arrive.

Based in a neighbouring Somerset hotel, or just passing through, you should make a point of visiting Lytes Cary Manor to see its Jenner collection, and also to enjoy a pleasant stroll in the beautiful gardens. While you're here, pop along to nearby Somerton. This small but historic town was capital of Wessex in about 900AD and it's where Somerset gets its name from.
