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 an award winning 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 and also boasts a fine cafe/restaurant.

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.

A wonderful Christmas stay

By Charlotte UK on 29-Dec-2023

We had a beautiful week''s stay at Julia''s home - everything about the house was comfortable, pristine, and well thought through - the Christmas decorations were a fantastic touch. Julia was so helpful in the run up to our stay, and would highly recommend Barrington to anyone looking for a peaceful time away from it all. We loved the many walks around the estate and a lunch at the Barrington Boar local pub. Many thanks for a wonderful stay - we very much hope to be back!
