Need a touch of cheer during the darker winter weekends? The National Trust's Montacute House, near Yeovil is currently lit up as a lantern of light in the Somerset landscape. The garden and house is wonderfully illuminated in vibrant colours making for a truly memorable winter experience.
Due to the house's fragility the NT is operating a timed ticketing system on a first come, first served basis. The timed system means entry into the house will be given at 15 minute intervals and once in you can enjoy it at your leisure at no additional cost. By visiting Montacute you are playing your part in looking after one of the area's special places.
Both the café and shop will be open.
Opening times: Sat & Sun 2-31 December (excluding 24 Dec) 3.00-7.00pm (house 4.00-6.30pm)
