'More Tudor adventure' Barrington Court

Barrington Court, Barrington, Ilminster, TA19 0NQ

'More Tudor adventure' Barrington Court


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. Close your eyes and you’ll almost be able to hear the sounds and see the sights of the glamorous parties held in the great hall during Barrington’s heyday. On the first floor listen out for the voices resonating from the past, of the young evacuees who called Barrington home during the Second World War.

Stroll through the Gertrude Jekyll inspired gardens, which with their focus on plant varieties and colours are a delight for all the senses. Be spurred on in your own garden or allotment by the stone-walled kitchen garden that produces a variety of delicious fruit and vegetables. Don’t just take our word for it, why not stop off in the Strode House Restaurant to taste these home-grown delights.

Barrington Court predominantly featured in BBC’s highly acclaimed recent production of Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall.
