The east front of Montacute House, Somerset. This Elizabethan Ham-stone house was built in the late sixteenth-century for Sir Edward Phelips. The east front is in the usual Elizabethan "E" formation with projecting wings to either side and central frontispiece.

The West Country’s landscape of rolling hills, heathland and Bath stone manor houses and villages are little changed since Jane Austen penned her classic novels, depicting Regency society with her sharp wit. Here we discover many of the picturesque and historic locations that were the setting and inspiration for some of her most famous works, giving us a glimpse of life from a bygone era.
