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.

Brinsop Court has the Wow Factor in spades. I have just celebrated my 40th at Brinsop with my partner, my mum and 15 other close friends. We hired both Baileys and Tirrells and we were unable to find … More

"Excellent venue for large group holidays"
The estate has kept all its heritage but is equipt with all mod cons.
Every detail considered and the owners have gone that bit further to make you feel welcome in this beautiful house and estate.
A few houses to choose from, adaptable to different group sizes and needs.
We had 6 dogs which usually would be unacceptable in most venues, but Brinsop welcomed us in.
Very friendly when booking and organising stay.
Have booked again for next year!

"Amazing place would highly recommend especially for larger groups"
I booked Brinsop Court for my office's Christmas party and it was by far one of the best places I have stayed. The buildings and grounds are beautiful and the staff were so helpful with any questions or requests we had. When booking for a larger group it is hard to find the perfect place but everyone said they loved it and we are looking to use again for a future party. The small extra touches made the stay even more special as we felt thoroughly looked after. We were left to our own fun the whole time (once they had made sure we were ok) and this just added to the great experience. I can not fault anything with this place or our stay as a whole. Amazing!
