Cothay Manor is a medieval manor house surrounded by some of Somerset’s most romantic gardens. Found close to Wellington and a 15 minute drive from Taunton, the house dates back to the 15th century and has been carefully restored with medieval furniture and fabrics so it looks much as it would have done in its heyday.
The house is thought to be one of England’s finest surviving medieval manors, and as soon as you step through the gate into the courtyard you’ll be struck by just how little appears to have changed over the centuries. The welcome you’ll receive may be friendly but the house is still every inch the impressive country manor, complete with oak panelling, treasures with tales to tell and stained glass windows. There’s something to see in every chamber, hall and parlour and the friendly tour guide will transport you back through the ages and make sure you don’t miss a thing.
Guided tours of the house are available most Sundays and every bank holiday from the first Sunday in April until the last one in September, and the gardens open during the same period on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays and bank holidays. Please note that dogs aren’t allowed at this attraction.
