The sitting room has a fully functional wood burner with all wood provided! All of the bedrooms are beautifully decorated with solid oak flooring and Egyptian cotton bedding of the highest standard. The kitchen contains all the necessary mod-cons tastefully designed with beech and Cumbrian slate and fitted with a full range of smart crockery, cutlery and glassware. Linen and towels are provided

Although no en-suite facilities are available at the Lodge the bathroom is generously sized and recently refitted with marble flooring, glazed walk-in shower with a pebbled interior and a huge free standing bath.


Outside there is a heated timber summer house (can sleep 2-4) in the grounds next to a relaxing decking area with comfortable garden furniture and barbeque facilities. The garden of the Lodge was professionally landscaped and is a truly stylish country paradise. In addition the grounds of the Hall are beautiful and include a tennis court, children's play area with sunken trampoline, woodland and a medieval moat. There are resident chickens and peacocks with spring hopefully bringing a return of the other livestock; sheep and pigs!

Barrington Hall is available as a wedding venue and for private dining and corporate events. See for further details. There is also a thriving gastro pub in the village, The Royal Oak, which dates back to the 1400s! We have negotiated a discount on your dining there, to view the menu and events please visit They also do amazing take away fish and chips!

It is a quintessentially English village with numerous thatched cottages and timber framed buildings dotted around the 30 acre village green, which is over half a mile long and supposedly the longest village green in England. The village boasts a thatched pub built in the 1400s with a superb reputation for food and beer.
