Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum
Arlington Court is a historic gem settled on the outskirts of Exmoor National Park. The estate of Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum has been run by the Chichester family for over 500 years.
The collection they and the National Trust look after comprises an array of artefacts, all of which are waiting to be seen during a visit. Some of the intriguing objects you may come across include model ships and shells.
The National Trust Carriage Museum rests next door and features an array of fascinating vehicles for you to uncover. There’s one for every occasion, from weddings to funerals.
After exploring the museum, be sure to explore Arlington Court’s grounds, where 20 miles of footpaths await. A highlight of the footpaths has to be the lake walk, which is a gentle, two-mile hike.
After walking, why not unwind in the formal Victorian garden of Arlington Court and The National Carriage Museum? A welcoming conservatory packed with subtropical plants can be enjoyed here.
Once you’ve experienced the beautiful house and grounds, along with the museum, be sure to visit the on-site, second-hand book shop before tucking into a treat at The Old Kitchen Tea room.
Arlington Court and The National Carriage Museum makes for a fascinating outing for all the family…
