A glittering Elizabethan house, adorned with elegant chimneys, carved parapets and other Renaissance features, including contemporary plasterwork, chimney pieces and heraldic glass. The magnificent state rooms, including a long gallery which is the largest of its type in England, are full of fine 17th and 18th century furniture and Elizabethan and Jacobean portraits from the National Portrait Gallery. There are also good quality textiles, including an exhibition of 17th century samplers. The formal garden includes mixed borders and old roses and is surrounded by a landscape park. Montacute featured in the award winning film Sense and Sensibility.

Note: Some rooms in the house do not have electric light, so visitors wishing to make a close study of tapestries, textiles or paintings should avoid visiting on dull days.
