Submit Review

Explore the stunning Barrington Court Gardens Created by influential horticulturalist, artist and writer Gertrude Jekyll, Barrington Court Gardens near Ilminster in Somerset is a beauty to behold, whatever the weather. Jekyll designed Barrington Court towards the end of her career in 1917 (she created over 400 gardens in the UK) and it is a garden of different character rooms. Wander through the hot room which is a blissful mix of lilies, dahlias and vibrant orange, red and yellow annuals around a pool and then simmer down in the cool room of white flowering and grey leaved plants. Look out for the vast pergola which supports the wisteria, clematis and honeysuckles. Get inspiration for your own garden in the lovely stone-walled garden with its great spread of fruit and vegetables and then take a trip out to the cider orchard. Fancy tasting the fruits of Barrington? Stop off in the Strode House Restaurant to taste some home-grown delights.
