‪This is a beautiful National Trust House with a large garden. At the entrance to the house, you can collect a short guide which will provide sufficient information about the Philips family for your visit. Of particular interest to us was Doctor Goodhart’s extensive collection of samplers some are as early as 1600. On display downstairs, back from cleaning is the Jean de Daillon tapestry,a 15th century French tapestry of a knight on a horse, which is absolutely stunning.
The garden are also worth a visit, enjoying the spring sunshine. I would also recommend the cafe and the shop. Overall an excellent day at the NT.‬

‪Beautiful house set in gardens that are gradually being restored to their original shape.
Gardens are better viewed on a dry day when you can also hire some wallets and play croquet.
The room guides are very knowledgeable and welcoming.
Even the local herd of bullocks came to say hello and be petted!
The National Portrait Gallery has loaned some of their portraits to the house which, although amazing, have very little to do with The house.
Look out for the incredible statues and figures dotted around the exterior walls and roof.‬

‪Whilst we enjoyed our visit and the lady on the door gave us a good introduction, we were disappointed by the general lack of information (or was it the muddled nature of the leaflet stands) through the house. The guides (few in number) were also not very forthcoming unless asked. On a return visit we will try to find out if guided tours are available. We note that the house managers appear uninterested in visitor comments or at least they don't respond.‬

‪Very friendly reception staff, greeted by Julia who explained the layout of the property & informed us of her guided tour about to start. She is so informative & enthusiastic, a brilliant start to our visit. Enjoyed visiting the house now the information leaflet are available again, information on each room, the paintings & animal safari. Especially enjoyed the Dutch painters gallery. Enjoyed our picnic in the cedar lawns area - a few more benches would be brilliant. A wonderful day out!‬

‪Wow, Montacute House! What a stunning National Trust property. After discovering this house and grounds were used in one of my favourite films of all time, Sense and Sensibility, I knew I had to visit straight away!

I visited Montacute House back in October 2021 along with my husband, 5-year-old daughter and in-laws. The little village of Montacute is so pretty and on arrival there is a lovely car park - which is free to all! We arrived around late morning and although busy, we managed to get a space.

Entry was a little bit slow, but once in it became very clear this was going to fast become one of my favourite National Trust properties.

When we arrived my in-laws were already inside and enjoying a hot drink in the sunny courtyard. We started off by waiting for a guided tour (which a few people were already gathering for) but changed our minds as I wasn't sure it would be the easiest with a 5-year-old. 

So off we went to explore ourselves - starting with photographs outside the stunning Elizabethan Renaissance house and long tree-lined driveway! Then we popped into the cute little orangery before wandering around to the beautiful gardens. Wow! The gardens are huge and filled with funny wibbly wobbly hedges and a huge fish pond with a fountain in the centre. Our daughter loved all of the space to run around, especially on the interesting patterns on the lawns.

Then it was on to the best part - Montacute House itself. What a beautiful house! Because of my love of Sense and Sensibility I was desperate to get inside and every room that we were able to see looked exactly as it did in the film! I was impressed with the Long Gallery (the longest of its kind in England!) although there wasn't a collection of paintings in there during our visit. My favourite room is The Great Hall with its enormous fireplace!

After I had bounced my way excitedly through the whole house, we came out into the rear garden - the one Marianne Dashwood (Kate Winslet) paces before setting off in search of Willoughby's house. These were equally stunning and so well kept!

We then took a walk along a lovely tree-lined path which led us to Montacute Park. (Seemingly free entry as there is entry into the village via a top gate) A vast, open parkland with 3 signposted trails (red, blue & purple) We ate our packed lunch on a large fallen tree before finding the lovely handmade horse swings, dotted around and hidden in the trees. Our daughter loved these!

Finally, we made a stop at the café before heading home. This was the only disappointing part of our visit. There were two staff members serving, but the queue moved so slowly and wrapped around part of the gardens! Our hot drinks and ice creams were delicious though - we enjoyed them at a table in the courtyard.

I highly recommend a visit to Montacute House. This truly is one of National Trust's strongest properties in my opinion. Such a large house, gardens and parkland to explore. Everywhere was so clean, tidy and impeccably kept! I look forward to visiting again very soon.‬

‪Arrived as it opened. Typical NT cafe on site which a good courtyard. Lovely gardens and surrounding parkland. Lovely property with a fantastic long gallery though shame not much displayed here. Very helpful volunteers and good mini guide to the house too. Must see the frezes and the dining room tapestry. ‬

‪There is plenty to see at this fine house and gardens. Unlike may stately homes this is a very light , open house with huge windows and high ceilings. All the usual facilities such as shop, café and a 2nd handbook shop. The grounds are not vast but are mainly dog friendly.‬

‪Enjoyable visit on a sunny spring Saturday.

Guides in the house were knowledgeable and friendly plus plenty of information provided in each room of the house .

Managed to do all 3 of the waymarked walks with Ladyhill walk have beautiful bluebells and wild garlic .

Toilets were clean and plentiful , cafe nice but car parking is not huge and could be an issue on busy day .

An excellent day out as members of NT‬

‪My title says it all. We arrived only 45 minutes after the house opened and were told that entry to the house would be 2 hours later ! We had travelled a long way to get here and could not book online timed entry - unlike other NT properties in the same area - so this was disappointing.

NT needs to take note and allow this to make sure that visitors and volunteers alike have a pleasant experience. After all, this is 2022 !‬
