Barrington Court Somerset England

I am often drawn to old architectures and gardens. Again, this was another exciting visit with Andrew to the old era, a known garden in Somerset, England.

The Manor house that stands at Barrington Court is believed to have been completed by 1560; its design combines pure Gothic style with a French Renaissance influence. The delightful garden was designed in 1917 using planting plans by the famous landscape gardener Gertrude Jekyll, the gardens are laid out in the Arts & Crafts style.

The formal parts of the Gardens are divided into a series of walled 'rooms' including White garden, the Rose and Iris garden and the Lily garden. The kitchen garden has apple, pear and plum trees trained along its high stone walls.

I didn't get to have my afternoon tea at Barrington Court!
