Travel the world on a dime

Barrington Court

Barrington Court in Somerset, England, is one of our very favorite gardens.

On your visit we recommend you investigate the gardens, have tea, and stroll the grounds.

The lovely walled gardens were designed by Gertrude Jekyll and include a delightful white garden.

The beautifully tended kitchen garden is full to over-flowing with vegetables and berries, and the heritage apples are delicious. The garden is a wonderful example of British garden design and the efforts of paid and volunteer gardeners.
