Lytes Cary Manor
Charlton Mackrell, Somerton


We aim for there to be interest at Lytes Cary all through the open season. For Spring bulbs and the crisp lines of the yew and topiary come early in April. June, July and September is the best time to view the spectacular borders.

Donít miss our annual Plant Fair in mid May.
