Montacute House winter tours
The "closed" season doesn't mean the staff get a four-month holiday though! It provides an opportunity for a thorough clean of all the rooms from top to bottom, and to catch up on conservation tasks.
This year for the first time the public is being given limited access to the house throughout the closed season. There are guided tours between noon and 2pm every Saturday and Sunday, led by volunteers including Denis Dickinson (seen on the right in the photograph below, speaking to a tour group in the Dining Room).
