Colonel Lyle leased Barrington Court from the National Trust in 1920. He spent the equivalent of £4 million on renovating the house and estate.

His legacy is a beautifully panelled house with stunning architectural features. Now you can experience the echoes of the past in this wonderful empty mansion.
