Barrington Court is a beautiful manor house set in wonderful gardens. There are craft workshops on site and very nice tea rooms and a modest selection of plants for sale. Barrington is a lovely place to spend an afternoon meandering through the grounds.

Another stunning house albeit with no furniture. It certainly gives another aspect to liven the senses and get the brain cells going.Lovely grounds ,great for dog walkers. Would loved to have gone on a guided tour but a bit late for us.

Another lovely visit to Barrington Court in the autumn sunshine. The gardens were still looking absolutely gorgeous despite the lateness of the season. Dogs are welcome to walk around the estate but are not allowed within the house. The house is well worth seeing. It...More

Spent an hour here. Many activities for kids and was pretty busy being half term. Nice open fields for walking. Pretty gardens, but quite empty. Wouldn't make a special trip
