An afternoon at Montecute house

This afternoon was supposed to be spent reviewing a new menu from a Beefeater restaurant but it was chaos so we took shelter in Montecute House which is near Yeovil. We have visited several times before but it never fails to bring some peace to the visitor.

It’s imposing frontage tells you that important happenings occurred here. Completed in 1601 it is a wonderful example of Elizabethan Renaissance architecture.

The gardens are formal in design and there is a very wobbly yew hedge that feels like it should tell a story but that is just the way it grows!.

As it was still March the flower borders were just coming to life although this tulip was trying to hide from the camera I’m sure!


This is what it will look like once it gets over it’s shyness!
