Lytes Cary Manor Garden, National Trust, Somerset
Lytes Cary Manor was owned of medieval herbalist Henry Lyte, and the house is surrounded by an enchanting small garden.
We visited Lytes Cary Manor Garden, near Somerton on a warm summer's day and were not diappointed.
The borders are planted with mixed shrubs, perennials and roses. Hidden paths enclosed by high hedges lead to surprise views.
The path leading up to the manor is bordered with some fine topiary.
Beyond a formal orchard, open lawns and statues lead to a shady tunnel of hornbeam and a secret garden.
If visiting make time to see inside the medieval Lytes Cary Manor, previously owned by the Jenner family and furnished from his time there in the 1900s.There are several other beautiful gardens nearby including Barrington Court, Tintinhull close by.
