Barrington Court

An atmospheric fragment of old Somerset: an empty Tudor manor house, beautifully restored in the 1920s, with farm buildings, abundant flowers and orchards.

Door in the Great Hall

Craftsmanship exemplified  

This is the story of Colonel Lyle's restoration of Barrington Court, which had fallen into terrible disrepair and was eventually reduced to being used as a farmhouse.
