Visit Barnsley and take a step into a real-life fairytale. Built by Godrey Barnsley for his wife, Julia, Woodlands Manor (now Barnsley Resort) stands as a lifelong expression of one man’s devotion. Today, guests can still feel the love. Spend hours strolling the 1,300-acre gardens and grounds in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Don’t miss the pedestrian village, the ruins of the original manor house, and enjoy a chance to learn about the property’s rich history—rumor has it that Julia Barnsley was even the model for Margaret Mitchell’s Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind.
