Things to see & do
Barrington Court was derelict when the sugar refining millionaire, Colonel Arthur Lyle, first laid eyes on it in 1916. Between 1920 and 1925 he set about making it into his family home, spending the equivalent of £4 million renovating the house and the grounds.
His legacy is a beautifully panelled house with stunning architectural features. Today you can walk freely through the rooms of this Tudor manor house, now devoid of furniture, and admire the wonderfully crafted and varied panelling from room to room.
Arts and crafts gardens
Discover this intimate family garden laid out in a series of rooms, inspired by Gertrude Jekyll.
The feel of the arts and crafts movement can also be found within the garden.
