Gardenvisit Editorial

A tudor manor house with a seventeenth century stable block and a twentieth century Arts and Crafts garden. The garden paving and walls were designed by Forbes and Tate in the 1920s. The planting was designed by Gertrude Jekyll though it is not clear what survives of her invention, but her plans survive and are being used in the restoration. There is a moat, a lily pond, a white garden, a courtyard garden and a pergola.

    Barrington is the sort of garden I like. It has an intimate feel, like sitting in one's own garden (I wish).

    The white garden has always been alive with bees and butterflies on my visits.

    It seems to have escaped the national trusts desire to be well ordered everywhere. The orchard for instance is not manicured.

    From May to July a great place to see Spotted Flycatcher.
