Those keen to don their outdoor clothing and explore some historical sights might enjoy an amble around Somerset's Montacute House.

The Daily Telegraph's exclusive National Trust walk promises to deliver an interesting route around the 16th century estate.

Volunteer warden Mimi Rousell suggests bringing sensible footwear, which could mean investing in a pair of walking boots suited to the terrain.

The expert adds: "The best thing about this walk is the diversity of the landscape and the surrounding historical attractions."

It begins at the Old Kitchen Garden car park and points of interest include Montacute House itself, as well as the Lime Avenue and St Michael's Hill.

Ms Rousell suggests bringing enough money to purchase a blackberry and apple crumble at the estate's Courtyard Cafe once the walk is complete.

The National Trust explains the formal gardens of the house are ideal for those who like a light stroll, taking in a collection of roses and the famous "wobbly hedges".
