About Lyle's ApartmentA unique apartment in the grand former stables of Barrington Court, sitting right next door to the incredible Tudor manor house.
Waking up in this glorious period apartment with its high ceilings and wooden floors, and mullioned windows overlooking the grounds of Barrington Court, is the perfect start to any break.
Housed in the converted former stable block, this elegant and spacious first floor apartment with its log burner in a beautiful historic stone fireplace and views over picturesque parkland will capture your heart. Head up the stairs at the back of the stable building where you’ll find the entrance to the apartment. Inside you’ll find two double bedrooms, both ensuite, a kitchen diner, a separate dining room, and the impressive sitting room. Outside, you’ll have use of the communal residents’ garden area, or venture beyond into the stunning formal gardens and parkland.
With free access to Barrington Court during opening hours, and the estate to explore out of hours once everyone else has headed home, staying at Lyle’s is an experience that will stay with you long after you leave. Barrington’s evocative manor, empty apart from the incredible carved oak panelling, is definitely worth a visit. The pretty village of Barrington with its lovely pub is a five-minute walk away. You’ll find more shops, bars and restaurants in Yeovil, around half an hour away by car.
When you've explored Somerset’s gorgeous rolling countryside and cider apple orchards (some of which you can also visit, like the Somerset Cider Brandy Company), head west to explore the beautiful city of Exeter (an hour away by car). If you’re craving sea air, then simply nip south to the coast at Lyme Regis, which is about 45 minutes by car. Other National Trust places nearby include Montacute House, gardener’s paradise Tintinhull and Lytes Cary - when you stay with us, the funds from your holiday go towards looking after places like these.
