English Manor, Goathurst, England Vacation Rental
Manor House I is situated in the small parish of Goathurst, some 3 miles south-west of Bridgwater on the northern edge of the Quantocks. The house lies south–west of the village on rising ground and is approached by a long drive through a former ornamental park, now largely under cultivation. It is of courtyard plan and the principal William & Mary range, dating 1689, faces north with distant views of the Bristol Channel. The rear ranges of the house are a palimpsest of older fabric, some dated to the medieval period; the whole being listed Grade I. To the south lies an extensive stable court and related buildings. The history of the parkland and its ornamental buildings, which are survivals of a notable 18th century romantic landscape, are listed Grade II* on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.
Manor House I is very easily accessed from Exit 24 of the M5 motorway, which is 3 miles (5km) away, and there are great walks in the Quantock Hills from the front door of the property. The wonderful gardens of Hestercombe are only a few miles away, so too is Dunster Castle, and the sacred site that is Glastonbury Abbey is only 15 (25km) miles east.
On the Grounds you will also find various sites available to tour on the grounds, including: St. Edwards Church which has undergone complete renovations, Temples, Stone Architecture dating back to the Druids, and various sites and sounds in our gardens and on the Estate that may well take you the entire trip to take in.
