Montacute House is a magnificent Elizabethan stone-built house in Somerset, with fine collections, gardens and park. It was built using local hamstone in around 1599 by Sir Edward Phelips. Montacute House now in the ownership of the National Trust and is regarded by many as one of the finest houses to survive from the Elizabethan era. The house and grounds are open to the public from March to the the end of October each year. Should you visit look for the romping cats, monkeys and other creatures up on the gables!
