Need suggestions for stopover for 2 nights Heathrow to Portmellon

Jump to last reply

We've added 2 nights to stay somewhere between our arrival at Heathrow and our apartment in Portmellon. :)

Traveling late March. The route I've chosen is A303 Andover/Mere to A30, Google says it should be about 4.5 hrs to Portmellon from Heathrow. We've been the northern route so not as interested in that, and the last time we were in England in late March we did a loop down through Surrey, Sussex and Kent.

I though maybe that staying somewhere around Mere would be nice as we wouldn't mind seeing Stourhead in spring, have only been there in the fall. We haven't been to Longleat at all, don't know if it is worth it? Are there other Gardens, Historic properties nearby that area?

Or should we consider driving a little further? Maybe around Yeovil? See Montacute House? Lytes Cary Manor? Or ?????

We would like a really nice place to stay for the 2 nights with a good onsite restaurant, or within a quick walk to one. We love old properties, a spa etc is not necessary.

Looking forward to all thoughts and suggestions!
