Time for harvest festivals!
Festival time in Somerset...
AUGUST has now arrived - but what an incredible July it has been! Glorious sunshine, magnificent sunsets, evenings sitting out late into the night. One group of guests discovered how close Mowbarton Barn is to several excellent gardens, and spent their stay flower- and plant-watching. Here are just a few of the local gardens they visited. East Lambrook , the Field of Dreams, Kilver Court Gardens, and the Gertrude Jekyll inspired gardens at Barrington Court. And that's not to mention our very own horticultural project - the fast-growing vineyard (see left)! Others preferred delving into the past. With so much history - myths, legends and facts - on our doorstep, that wasn't hard to do. There's Lytes Cary Manor, Muchelney Abbey, the site of the Battle of Sedgemoor, and we're just 45 minutes from Camelot! For special interest groups of any sort Mowbarton Barn is perfect: enjoy the trips out by day and gather round the fire to discuss your discoveries in the evening. (Yes, I'm afraid the nights are drawing in - but the logs are ordered!)
