Lovely gardens;not huge but very pleasant. The Manor was interesting, and as I know Avebury manor it was fascinating to see another property owned by the Jenner family. Two Brothers married two sisters. Chapel had a nice vibe. Café was fine with outdoor seating as...More

Fantastic gardens and an even better house possibly my favourite so far even though not the biggest it makes up for it with its history and character. A must see!

We had family from Los Angeles to stay. It was a gloriously warm sunny day so we all trundled off to Lytes Cary house. Utterly charming small Tudor family house. Lovely gardens and the intimacy of a family home hasn't been lost. Well worth a...More

I wanted to visit the chapel as well as the Manor at Lytes Cary. It's very close by and as National Trust members, the tickets are good value for a day out. We walked in the Apostle garden which was formally laid out with lots...More

Yes they had benches in the picnic area. Some people were sitting on blankets in the fields adjacent to the picnic area. I didn’t see any bins, for rubbish. We took ours home.
