If you are moving house, looking to start a new life in Montacute or retiring to Montacute, we can help you.
Montacute is a small village and civil parish in Somerset, England, 4 miles west of Yeovil. If you’re looking for a quiet escape to the country to settle down in, we can see why you might be considering a move to Montacute.
The name Montacute is thought by some to derive from the Latin “Mons Acutus”, referring to the conically acute St Michael’s Hill dominating the village to the west. An alternative view is that it is named after Drogo de Montagu, whose family originated from Montaigu-les-Bois, in the arrondissement of Coutances. Mortain held Montacute after 1066, Drogo was a close associate.
The village is built almost entirely of the local hamstone. From the 15th century until the beginning of the 20th century it formed the heart of the estate of the Phelips family of Montacute House. The village has a fine medieval church, and was the site of a Cluniac priory , the gatehouse of which is now a private house.
At the centre of the village is a large cobbled square known as the ‘Borough’ around which are grouped picturesque cottages and a pub, the Phelips Arms; there is a second public house and hotel situated in the village, called the King’s Arms.
The square leads directly to Montacute House and grounds which are open to the public. In the grounds, there is a cafe offering light lunches and afternoon teas, a lovely place to while away an hour or two in beautiful settings.
