BARRINGTON, Ilminster, TA19 0NQ
Discover the haunting echoes of the past at Barrington Court, a Tudor manor house free from collections and furniture. The property was saved from ruin and restored by the Lyle family in 1920s, when the court house resembled a barn rather than the proud manor house that it is. Stroll through the Gertrude Jekyll inspired gardens, which with their focus on plant varieties and colours are a delight for all the senses. There is also a stone-walled kitchen garden that produces a variety of delicious fruit and vegetables.
