The stunning Arlington Court estate is situated in the valley of the river Yeo.

At the centre of the 2700 acre grounds is the magnificent home of Miss Rosalie Chichester who lived in the house for 84 years until 1949. The house is now a treasure trove of collectables from tapestry to model ships. An array of enchanting items collected by Miss Chichester over the years.

The basement of the house is home to one of the largest colonies of Lesser Hourseshoe bats and these amazing creatures can be viewed between May and September via the specially positioned 'batcams'.

The house is surrounded by stunning gardens which include a beautiful Victorian garden with conservatory and ornamental pond which leads into a small traditional walled kitchen garden which has been partially restored.

The estate's stable block holds a splendid collection of 19th Century horse-drawn vehicles and visitors can take carriage rides around the grounds.

This enchanting estate is crowded with treasures which bring the past to life.
