Arlington Court, Arlington, Barnstaple, Devon, EX31 4LP
Arlington Court is an unexpected jewel on the edge of Exmoor, a complete family estate held by the Chichester family for over five hundred years. The collection consists of treasures for all tastes, from model ships to shells, collected over several generations. The house itself, built in 1823 and extended in 1860, has an austere facade. However, inside the cosy rooms purvey a homely, family atmosphere. The Carriage Museum in the stables has a vehicle for every occasion from cradle to grave. Currently on loan from the Houses of Parliament is the Speaker’s State Coach, a glorious, gilded carriage with over 300 years of history. Children's trails in house and carriage museum. Children's menu in tea room. Woodland play trail (1.75 miles).
Full wheelchair access to carriage museum. Only ground floor of house is accessible, but virtual tour of first floor available. Surfaces pushchair friendly, but we ask these go not go round the house. Volunteer driven buggy available most days to take passengers from the house to the carriage museum.
