    HISTORY:

  • The Montgomery family has owned North Cadbury Court for 100 years but it has a fascinating history dating back 700 years to 1300. It began as a medieval hall, built by the de Moels and the original roof trusses are still visible in several rooms. In 1337 the house was sold to William Botreaux from Cornwall and a descendant, Elizabeth, rebuilt the neighboring church in the early 1400’s. It is thought she founded a college for priests in 1427 in the house. Sir Francis Hastings leased the building from his brother, the Earl of Huntingdon, and in the 1580’s built the large Elizabethan mansion. It was then sold in 1596 to Matthew Ewens, a Baron of the Exchequer. In 1610 it was purchased by Richard Newman who had the misfortune of being imprisoned by Oliver Cromwell for lending his support to King Charles I but was forgiven by King Charles II. The house and estates stayed in the Newman family for another 150 years. The Bennett family purchased the house and its lands in the 1760’s and it remained in their family for the next 100 years. During that time, they added a ballroom and the very attractive Georgian style south façade. The Bennett coat of arms can be seen above the main door. In 1910 the house and estate was purchased by Sir Archibald Langman and he started making Montgomery cheddar cheese for which the estate is now world famous. He had only recently returned from the Boer War where he had donated a field hospital. He and his friend and surgeon, Arthur Conan Doyle, were briefly taken prisoner by the enemy, and he personally took the amazing photographs behind the Boer lines that hang on the stairs. During the Second World War, a London nursery was evacuated into the house. After the war, a large part of the house was lent to the YMCA as part of a scheme to train under-privileged city boys who wanted an entry into farming. Between 1948 and 1966 several hundred young men learnt their trade at North Cadbury Court. Recently renovated throughout, the property is now avaialble for exclusive private rentals
