Discover the haunting echoes of the past at Barrington Court, a Tudor manor house lying at the edge of the Somerset levels.

Follow in the footsteps of the Lyles as, together with the architect J.E. Forbes, they carefully brought the house back to life and filled it with people and parties and an astonishing collection of salvaged woodwork.

Alongside the house are ornamental gardens, originally designed by Gertrude Jekyll and now planted sympathetically to her plans, as well as a large, working kitchen garden and vast orchards producing Somerset cider.

This guidebook explore Barrington's hidded history, from the suprising origin of some of its stat attractions (a staircase from Scotland, a 16th-century screen from Norfold), to its starring role in the television series, Wolf Hall, to its continued role as a working estate.
