If you love history, there is no better place to explore than Barrington Court in UK. Built in 1550s, the building is a Tudor architecture owned by the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty. The visit to this house is very knowledgeable and if you are visiting with a tour guide, you will learn about the history of the front door, frames, and other such furnishings. An ideal spot for all age groups, the volunteering team is enthusiastic and friendly. Surrounded by plenty of flowers and orchards, you can also enjoy the atmosphere and spend up to 2 hours amid colourful gardens. There is also a small café at the corner, if you wish to grab a quick snack.
Absolutely love Barrington. Such a lovely place to visit with young children. So much outdoor space to run around in. Cafe is great. Great little shop. House is empty so don't need to worry about children touching things. Pottery, jewellery, woodwork and fabric shop to see. Well worth a visit.
Superb place..... Worth it for the day, plenty to do and see,loads of walking as well. Brilliant day out we had. Quirky in places.
Great place to visit. Rooms are not normally furnished but have been decorated for Christmas. There were willow sculptures too both inside and outside. Nice to walk around the gardens but there are also footpaths that you can access. Staff & volunteers are very friendly and knowledgeable.
Lovely house and beautiful grounds. Well worth a visit. Food is good here as well.
Pretty place to explore, little pricey on entry if you're not a National Trust member. But free of charge are the craft workshops in the rear outbuildings which are great to explore, gain knowledge and get inspired. Choose from Jewellry, Pottery, Textiles, Woodworking and Furniture.
