Lytes Cary Manor includes a chapel of 14th century heritage and a 15th century Great Hall. The well-known medieval herbalist Henry Lyte, author of Lytes Herbal, lived here. Lytes Cary Manor is now owned by the National Trust.
The Great Hall at Lytes Cary Manor is, as you would expect from an herbalist, surrounded by gardens. These gardens include some spectacular flower gardens.
There are also formal gardens and the one pictured below points to a dovecote in the distance.
Lytes Cary Manor is located near to both Barrington Court and Montacute House. Lytes Cary Manor is located off the A372 near the village of Kingsdon.
