The small number of rooms that are on show are outstanding. However all of my party thought the £10 entrance fee was pushing it. £6 would be a fair price. Give the cafe a miss, it is very cramped and expenive.

We decided to visit this site as a friend recommended it. The gardens are the best part about Lytes Cary - a lovely variety of plants and in full bloom which was very pleasant. However, we found one member of staff very rude to ourselves...More
