Barrington Court summer

While away a summer day

The sense of space and play of the light all around the gardens and grounds, gives you chance to escape daily routines, slow down perhaps enjoy a picnic and spend the day.

Montacute House picnic

Montacute, Somerset

The best picnic spots at Montacute House can be found by hunting for them. Hidden behind the hedges of West Drive is the lower paddock where you can find the family picnic area.  Shaded by the tall trees you can munch on a sandwich whilst playing hide and seek or having a swing.
