Enjoy a guided tour of Grade I Mells Manor, originally built by Glastonbury Abbey in the 1470s and seized by Henry VIII after the dissolution. The house was sold in 1543 to the Horner family who extended it in the 16th and 17th centuries and whose descendants still live there. There will be time to explore the Manor's Grade I gardens and nearby parish church which contains a number of notable memorials.
A two-course gastro pub lunch will be followed by a visit to Grade II Mells Park for a guided tour of the Lutyens house which stands in an 18th century landscaped park, set among the combes of the Mendips. Then join the head gardener for a tour of the Grade II formal gardens as he explains the landscaping and views from the terraces.
Visit St Andrew's Church, awarded three stars by Simon Jenkins in England's Thousand Best Churches.
Includes two-course gastro pub lunch with tea or coffee.
