13 Challenges – #9 / 11 Barrington Court
Another jewel in the National Trust’s crown is Barrington Court. Nestled in the Somerset countryside (we had to manoeuvre our way down many narrow, winding lanes) it is a delight.
The imposing manor house is empty – yes, they have taken all the furniture and paintings out. This gives you the chance to really see the house as it was built. The gardens are also interesting, even in the rain!
When we visited there was an exhibition of sculptures around the house. One that really took the eye was what was the kitchen full of willow arches.
The display below shows those and some of the other interesting features.
