These beautiful traditionally riven beige buff flagstones have been skillfully moulded to reflect the time worn originals found within the grounds and kitchen gardens at Barrington Court in Somerset.
The Barrington flagstone’s unique blend of colours brings a warmth and richness to any garden setting. The flagstones are available in a range of sizes which can be laid randomly to create an authentic, traditional appearance.
A house has stood on the site of Barrington Court in Somerset since Domesday, but the present Tudor manor house is believed to have been completed in circa 1560. Barrington Court was the first large country house and estate to be acquired by the National Trust, and whilst it isn’t hidden it feels secluded from the outside world.
The old farm buildings at Barrington Court host a pottery and woodcarver, both of whom now sell their wares. What were once cow stalls, a yard and pens and the surrounding fields have been transformed into fragrant and delightful garden landscapes, their design being influenced by Gertrude Jekyll.
A beautiful sunken lily pond, raised fragrant flower beds, an arboretum, fruit orchards and avenues are all carefully planned to provide a variety of wonderful vistas to enjoy and appreciate the wonderful property and surroundings.
The stone-walled kitchen garden produces a variety of fruit and vegetables. Local buff coloured quarried stone is used throughout the estate, which lies near Ilminster in Somerset.
