"...Out of the ordinary..."

Brinsop Court provides luxurious Tudor living in rural tranquility and has a Visit England 4 Star Gold rating. This is a fabulous historic building, which has been carefully divided into 4 beautiful dwellings, is newly refurbished and positioned around a wonderful courtyard. This suberb self-catering rural retreat sleeps 7 (in 3 double rooms - 2 with ensuite and 1 single) you have your own footbridge over the moat and the dining room and living room look out onto the moat.

The moment that you open the door of Dansey House, you will find yourself face to face with our trademark wrap around luxury & comfort; complete with leadlight windows and oak beams (ex-residents include William Wordsworth!) Brinsop Court is a truly relaxing retreat with many secluded spots for quiet contemplation. The large modern country kitchen creates a warm and inviting hub with its Aga and various mod-cons, but a great local pub restaurant is just 5 mins away if you don't feel like cooking. There is a large comfortable sitting room complete with a 42" plasma screen TV with Freeview, a DVD player for you to enjoy your favorite films as you relax in large squashy sofas in front of a roaring log fire. There is a downstairs bedroom with en suite shower/bathroom ideal for visitors who'd rather avoid the stairs.

Children and well-behaved pets are very welcome and bound to have an unforgettable time at Brinsop!

For tennis enthusiasts, historians, walkers, naturalists, ornithologists, sporting types, adventurists, families, meeting up with friends or just plain relaxing, this is the perfect place.

We have also just finished renovating Ivy Cottage which sleeps 2 and is now available to rent along with Tirrells House which sleeps 7/9 both properties are on the Brinsop Court Estate, you will find further details on our new website or call me on 0787 2905320

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.

The Heart of England/Peak District

Brinsop is a small hamlet within the Wye Valley, at the western edge of the county of Herefordshire. The nearest villages are Tillington, with its very popular Bell pub to the north and Credenhill, home of the SAS to the south.

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!)


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!

Other events not be missed in Herefordshire include the Herefordshire Walking Festival held during June and the Herefordshire Film Festival. The Courtyard theatre in Hereford is a light and airy building offering all kinds of theatre, art and comedy, attracting performers from all over the UK. Meanwhile, Malvern Theatre is proud of its reputation for hosting many London shows and plays, when they tour the country.

Brinsop is superbly situated for golfers, it's less than a five minute drive to The Herefordshire Golf Club which offers a challenging 18 holes with absolutely stunning views. Meanwhile, at Burghill Golf Club, which is ten minutes by car, you’ll find a less strenuous game.

"Dansey House offers peaceful comfort in a beautiful setting"

It was delightful to find Dansey house set in such magnificent countryside and also to find it so wonderfully comfortable and spacious without being pretentious. We all loved the views from the various rooms. The inner courtyard is beautiful and we enjoyed picking fresh herbs from the garden. Plenty of bathrooms were much appreciated and the bedrooms, linen etc were all of a high standard. Kitchen equipment was plentiful and the Aga made the kitchen a comfortable hub. It would have been fun to light the fire in the drawing room but the house was so cosy that we didn't need to. Everyone agreed it was the perfect oasis to return to after a busy day at Hay Festival.
