North Cadbury Court to feature in US luxury travel show
North Cadbury Court will feature in a top US luxury travel show at the end of March.
Its owner Archie Montgomery welcomed Susan Li - anchorwoman of American news organisation’s CNBC show First Class - for a day of filming.
The show will feature Susan trying out a 12-bore shotgun, testing British tweed for size and having a go at golf on the roof.
The luxury stately home in the village of North Cadbury is renowned for its facilities including a casino in the old wine cellars and rooftop golf tee.
Susan Li said: “The place is amazing.
“I’ve never been anywhere like it before, so full of history and gorgeously decorated.”
Archie Montgomery will feature in the programme.
He said: “The house will appeal to Americans looking for a Downton Abbey experience because it is a genuine old English estate.
“It dates back to the 1300s with medieval, Elizabethan and Georgian wings.
“It’s been in my family for nearly 100 years.”
He added: “We enjoy seeing other people use it and having fun.”
The film crew joined in with clay pigeon shooting and golf.
