Lytes Cary Manor

Lytes Cary Manor is a National Trust property, surrounded by a beautiful garden, photographed on their website from the same position as I chose, although theirs is taken nearer the building and the colours are brilliant. They say this:
'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.
To complete your visit, take a stroll among our community allotments and discover their creative and colourful designs'.
The planting in the garden complements the house beautifully.
These Aeoniums were glowing in a corner of the garden, brightening up an area. How do they get them to grow so large?
Lavender and Alliums were beautiful along beside the house
This area was protected from visitors, because the west wing is rented out for holiday makers.
What a glorious place to stay.
