Pocket Guide: Ilminster Barrington Court Hotels

Somerset is famous for its rolling farmlands, historic towns like Bath and Wells, and the Exmoor National Park. It also has some of the best castles in the country, and a great number of fine stately homes and landscaped gardens. One of the most splendid of these is Barrington Court near Ilminster, and it makes a perfect destination for a day's excursion from your Somerset hotel or guesthouse.

Somerset Hotels for Barrington Court

Barrington court is a fine example of a Tudor manor house, and is unusual as English stately homes go in not being cluttered up with furniture and interminable collections of clocks and stuffed birds! The interplay of natural light on oak panelling and the sheer size of the interior spaces seem to bring you closer to the spirit of the age than any amount of 'period décor' can. This magnificent house was slipping into oblivion when it was rescued by the Lyons family back in the 1920s. It came back into a brief period of domestic use during World War II, when its first floor became a home for children evacuated from the horror of the London Blitz.

Barrington Court Gardens from Somerset Hotels

The crowning glory of Barrington Court, and what attracts most leisure visitors, is its splendid gardens, designed under the influence of Gertrude Jekyll and an absolute delight for the senses. The gardens are divided up into various sections that were laid out formally by the Lyles in the 1920s, including a stunning White Garden with wisterias and clematis, and a Pool Garden with a large central pool and beds of surrounding annuals. The Kitchen Garden is a particular favourite with visitors interested in home-growing, for its sweet peas and other edible organics.

Barrington Court is an encouraging example of resurrection. Built in 1540 and almost on the point of collapse when it was resuscitated by the Lyle family, it has since had new life breathed into it and become a major regional attraction. Visit the house and gardens from your Somerset hotel or guesthouse and enjoy one of England's great historic houses and loveliest landscaped gardens.
