Close to the Borderlands of Wales and the Welsh Marches, the extensive grounds, farmland, carp filled moat and magical woodland surrounding Brinsop Court Estate extends to approximately 800 acres and are yours to explore during your stay.
Follow the ancient moat to the meandering stream as it winds towards the woodland beyond. How about a tennis tournament on the court, with avid spectators relaxing on the surrounding lawn? Why not blow the cobwebs away in an exhilarating walk across the rolling fields and farmland or hire bikes and explore the lanes and surrounding area.
The living room and dining room windows overlook the moat which house ducks and moorhens and the odd heron looking for a tasty carp supper, during early summer there is a superb display of waterlillies. A relaxing barbecue area is situated at the front of the house so you can enjoy a meal with a glass of wine whilst watching the wildlife busy on the water.

Brinsop is very close to the famous Offa’s Dyke, Herefordshire Black and White Village trail, Wye Valley Walk, Black Mountains, Brecon Beacons and Hergest Ridge (of Tubular Bells fame!)
The Hereford / Brinsop area
First on the list must be Hereford Cathedral, which houses the oldest map in the world, the Mappa Mundi, alongside the ancient Chained Library. This year the Cathedral proudly hosted the world famous Three Choirs Festival which returns every three years, sharing the event with Worcester & Gloucester Cathedrals all within an hours drive
Next, wander around the world famous book town of Hay-on Wye, enjoy a coffee and visit the shops or better still, spend a week or two at the fascinating and vibrant Hay Literary Festival which is held every year during the month of May!
