Lytes Cary Manor

Intimate manor house with walled gardens and estate

The house with its 14th-century chapel and 15th-century Great Hall was much added to in the 16th century. In the 20th century it was rescued from dereliction by Sir Walter Jenner who refurnished the interiors in period style. At the same time the garden was laid out in a series of rooms with many contrasts, topiary, mixed borders and a herbal border based on the famous 16th-century Lytes Herbal, which can be seen in the house. Several walks through the wider estate show many features typical of farmed lowland England, including ancient hedges, rare arable weeds and farmland birds
