We added Montacute House to our Jane Austen tour because its the Delaford in Sense and Sensibility, and we really loved the scenery in the movie. Montacute didn't disappoint. The house is fantastic and just full of history and the grounds are beautiful.

Sadly the upper floor of the house was not available due to repairs required to the staircases. This meant we were unable to visit the long gallery, which is one of the highlights of the house. The parts of house we saw were very interesting....More
