Rosewall is a unique listed Arts and Crafts farmhouse built in the early 1920’s by the architects Forbes and Tate as part of the Lyle family's restoration of Barrington Court. Having Barrington Court as its nearest neighbour gives the house a unique feel. The day time guests do not come down our drive and, when sitting in the garden behind the house, you are fully shielded from life at the Court. However you can wander over to the National Trust restaurant and café or their plant stalls; stroll along the drives and footpaths; explore the orchards and parkland. Members will be able to visit the gardens designed by Gertrude Jekyll, as well as join in Easter egg hunts and other family activities. There are workshops situated at the far end of the avenue making furniture, pottery, woodwork and jewellery; as well as a National Trust book barn.

There are miles of foot paths to wander along and the lanes offer plenty of opportunities for all levels of cycling: flat rides along the levels or steeper challenges if you venture south or east to Ham Hill. It's ideal for family or group cycling.
Our favourite beaches in the area are Lyme Regis and Eype near Bridport; both in Dorset and on the Jurassic coast and less than an hour away.
Barrington village has a gastro pub called the Barrington Boar. There’s a more traditional village pub in Shepton Beauchamp – an easy walk over the hill behind the cricket pitch. There’s Perry’s Cider Mills in Dowlish Wake – you can buy cider and local produce as well as a light lunch; Brown & Forrest smokery in Hambridge; Somerset Cider Brandy and Burrow Hill cider are made at Burrow Hill farm - you can see Burrow Hill with its landmark tree from the garden.
There are specialist butchers – Bonners in Ilminster; A J Winter in Shepton Beauchamp. The Trading Post organic farm shop, which you may pass as you arrive from A303, sells a wide range of organic produce.

There are golf courses in Sherborne, Yeovil, Long Sutton, Wheathill.


There are 2 en suite double bedrooms, a further double and 1 twin on the 1st floor: these share a family bathroom.
There are 2 further children’s rooms on the second floor, which can be rented by families on request.
The ground floor comprises a sitting room, dining room and study with a kitchen and laundry. The garage is home to table tennis; table football; a darts board; and a croquet set.

We have had an amazing week - May 2023

By Ming-Li on 07-May-2023

A wonderful stay! Such beautiful surroundings and grounds, and then impeccable furnishings both inside and out. A lovely welcome hamper. The photos barely do the place justice. We have had an amazing week there, both in the sunshine and rain. It made an equally great base to explore the surrounding area or spend some time at the home. (The wifi works well if you need it!) Our dogs were made to feel very welcome and they loved the outdoor space. All in all a fantastic time and we will hopefully be able to visit again soon.

Perfect for an extended family catch-up - April 2025

By Jenny on 02-May-2023

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Beechams. The house is situated within beautiful National Trust grounds and was comfortable and homely. Perfect for an extended family catch-up. Our children really enjoyed the table tennis provided in the outside games room. Nice touches such as a welcome hamper and plenty of firewood to provide a cosy atmosphere. It also has a lovely, peaceful, and private garden overlooking fields.

Spectacular house, wonderful garden, great host July 2022

By Gwenyth on 10-Jul-2022

Hands down the best Airbnb we''''''''ve ever stayed in. Spectacular house, wonderful garden, great host. The property somehow manages to be incredibly grand and elegant while being comfortable and relaxed enough to feel good about having little ones running about. We were delighted to see badgers out on the grounds several evenings, as well as deer, bunnies, and very friendly squirrels. Loved viewing the sunsets and sunrises from the patio. Can''''''''t say enough good things and desperately wish we were still there!
