Visit: Cothelstone Manor and Orchard Wyndham (Somerset)
10.30am Cothelstone Manor (Mr Michael Fleurs-Raby),
nr Taunton. The house and church are really all that there is
of the village and they nestle under the Quantocks. There has
been a house here since 1066 and the present building is believed to date from
the early to mid-sixteenth century. The house is fascinating,
and the gatehouse magnificent. We shall have coffee, tour the
house and have a buffet lunch.
Orchard Wyndham (Trustees of the Wyndham Estate), Williton.
This has been a family house for 700 years with continuous building and
alteration from the 14th to the 20th centuries. We shall
tour the house and garden.
