I had the most wonderful weekend with Ben’s family! We were totally isolated in our Somerset cottage, and I must say it was a delight to not be contacted for the long weekend. We stayed here on Barrington Court’s estate, now owned by the National Trust. It was the most astonishing grounds, and even more amazing house. The majority of the architectural details are original, dating back to the early 1600s.
One surprise delight was a small choral concert in the local town of Shepton Beauchamp. It was a great concert to unbelievable standard. And it had the most wonderful village folk that you could never encounter elsewhere! One even came up to Ben and I to introduce us to the village – how sweet!
