Brinsop Court is in the hamlet of Brinsop, about 5 miles North West of the lovely old city of Hereford. To the West, we find the Welsh Borderlands and Marches.
This area is littered with fascinating history, lovely old black and white villages, such as Weobley, Pembridge, Eardisland, Eardisley and Almeley amongst market towns like no others, such as Leominster, Kington and Presteigne.
For breathtaking views try Hergest Ridge and Offa’s Dyke, or visit Hay-on-Wye and get to the gateway of The Breacon Beacons and the Black Mountains- it’s all so close!
Immediately surrounding Brinsop Court you can freely enjoy a place not bothered by public footpaths, and be prepared to come across sheep, lambs, ponies, horses and the occasional tractor or combine.. this is a working farm.
250 acres of woodland- most of it ancient, containing a huge variety of different species of Fauna and Flora. Enjoy!
The 4 Daughters of the owners all have a nominated walk. Follow the signs for Harriet, Alice, Molly or Florrie’s walks all together or individually to get the full benefit of your walking, outdoorsy time here at Brinsop. You are welcome to bring you dogs.
We have set up a Treasure Trail around the farm which every family member will enjoy. Leaflets and clues are available on request.
Clay Pigeon Shoots
These can be arranged with a local reputable person, all fully insured, guns provided and some tuition if required.
It is possible, if a guest is interested, for us to arrange a day with our visiting Stalker. Our deer management is of the highest standard and John Thornley, OBE, our stalker, is a national authority on Woodland Wildlife Management.
Our moat contains carp and trout. Guests are offered the chance to fish the moat for their supper- only 2 fish per person! A little further afield is Harlands Pool, which has shyer fish and offers more challenging sport. If you arrive without rods, we can lend you equipment.
We have a number of bicycles here at Brinsop Court, which guests are able to borrow.
