An ancient castle and comfortable country home with dramatic vistas and subtropical gardens
Dramatically sited on a wooded hill, a castle has existed here since at least Norman times, with an impressive medieval gatehouse and ruined tower giving a reminder of its turbulent history.
The castle that you see today became a lavish country home during the 19th century for the Luttrell family, who lived here for 600 years.
The castle boasts spectacular views toward the Bristol channel, the Quantock hills and up to the moors of Exmoor.

The framing is a little tight at the bottom, but maybe the foreground area was rather busy with people? Notwithstanding, you have captured the castle well and given us a good flavour for the architecture. The overcast sky still retains some interest and makes a good contrasting backdrop for the building. Detailing in the architecture is well realised.
