Relax in the comfort of this magnificently refurbished cottage, and enjoy views across the landscaped gardens of the sixteenth-century Court House.

Things to see and do nearby

South West England

The South West region is probably England's most well-known holiday hotspot, being home to some of the most famous seaside resorts. Pretty villages and harbours in Cornwall, many with sweeping sandy beaches, such as St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to name but a few, give way to sophisticated seaside resorts in Devon and Dorset which include Bournemouth, Torquay and Ilfracombe. The history of this region is unrivalled; Wiltshire's spectacular downland and the stone circles at Avebury and Stonehenge, through Hardy's Dorset, dramatic Dartmoor and gentler Exmoor, to the mining landscapes of Cornwall and West Devon, which are now recognised as being of international significance, having been awarded World Heritage Site status in 2006. The Trust protects 370 miles of the coastline in Devon and Cornwall and, wherever you are in the two far western counties, you're never more than 25 miles from the sea. As well as this peninsula, the Trust also cares for much of the countryside in Gloucestershire, Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset and a wide array of fascinating properties to visit and explore. Not surprisingly, perhaps, this area is also home to the widest selection of National Trust holiday cottages.

    Warm - even in Winter!

    This upmarket apartment has good views over the Barrington Court estate, and is a joy to stay in, and is always warm, even in the winter.

    Always special

    Barrington is always special. It is such a privilege to immerse oneself in the atmosphere of such wonderful gardens and beautiful buildings. I am always sad to leave and look forward to returning.

    Stunning setting

    A lovely apartment in a stunning setting. Comfortable beds you didn't want to get out,loads of hot water,wonderful views from every window and a dishwasher - what more could you ask for?? I recommend 'The Barrington Oak' just 5 mins away-great food and company and also the cream teas at the NT Cafe. A very well furnished holiday home that we didn't want to leave.
