Outside 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 www.barringtonhall.co.uk 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 www.royaloakbarrington.co.uk. They also do amazing take away fish and chips! Location The village of Barrington is on the river Cam, 7 miles south-west of Cambridge. We are 6 miles from junction 11 on the M11. Easy accessible from London it is a 45 minute drive north on the M11, and by train takes 45 minutes to nearby Royston or Cambridge. Surrounding Areas Barrington is a quintessentially English village, has numerous thatched cottages and timber framed buildings that dot the 20 acre village green, which is over half a mile long and supposedly the longest village green in England. The historic University City of Cambridge is just a short drive away. Besides the colleges, stunning architecture there are the Botanical Gardens, Fitzwilliam Museum and punting opportunities! Granchester village, poignantly captured by Rupert Brook in his poems is just up the road and offers tea gardens, four pubs and the tranquil water meadows. Also nearby and easily accessible are the National Trust properties of Wimpole Hall and estate and Anglesey Abbey. A little to the south are the Essex villages of Saffron Walden with nearby historic Audley End House. More
