The 85-acre private estate at Barcroft Hall in South Petherton is a wonderfully integrated combination of formal gardens, wildlife areas, orchards, woodland and sustainable farmland.

Barcroft Hall could easily be mistaken for having been built in Queen Anne’s era, but was in fact built in 1988/89 of classic design in mellow brick with stone inlays and quoins, all under a slate roof.

The gardens provide a perfect setting for the house with large expanses of lawn, formal terraces, stepped paths and a series of large ponds attracting wildlife, surrounded by water loving plants, trees and shrubs.

We would like to pass on our sincere thanks to Tracey and Richard, current owners of Barcroft Hall, for their kindness and generosity of hosting our Picnic with Peggy event.
