Echoes of the past haunt this now empty Tudor manor house, so lovingly restored in the 1920s by Sir Arthur Lyle. Old farm buildings host a pottery and woodcarver, both of whom sell their wares. What were once cow yards, pens and fields have been transformed into fragrant and delightful flower gardens, their design influenced by Gertrude Jekyll. The stone-walled kitchen garden produces a variety of wonderful fruit and vegetables, which can be enjoyed in the restaurant, while the orchards provide the apples for our own cider and apple juice. This is a place to relax and refresh the senses.

Barrington Court Barrington, Ilminster, Somerset. TA19 0NQ.
