Dulverton Group visit
Lytes Cary Manor is an intimate medieval manor house with a beautiful Arts and Crafts garden where you can imagine living. Originally the family home of Henry Lyte, where he translated the unique Niewe Herball book on herbal remedies, Lytes Cary was then lovingly restored in the 20th century by Sir Walter Jenner. The garden rooms contain a magical collection of topiary and herbaceous borders, while tranquil walks on the estate take you along the River Cary and the little tea-room serves filled rolls, soup, scones, cakes and hot and cold drinks.
Wheelchairs can be used to access almost the entire ground floor of the house. Unfortunately there is no access to the upper floor. Disabled visitors can return to the Great Hall where there is a tablet computer available with pictures of the upstairs rooms. A large print and Braille guide is also available. Garden has slopes, uneven, narrow and loose gravel paths.
Non-Group members welcome.
NB. Membership of the Exmoor Society does not cover membership of the Group.
