Discover Brinsop

A historical house, a meandering moat, a beautiful barn and a functioning farm

Set amongst the rolling, green hills of Herefordshire’s countryside, Brinsop has been carefully restored. A 14th Century manor house encircled by a moat, a traditionally built oak barn and two idyllic cottages, all nestled within 800 acres of farmland and wonderfully preserved nature.

Brinsop is a place to stay, to host special celebrations and events, and to spend unforgettable moments amongst the flora and fauna of England.

THE FOUNDERS

Born and bred amongst Herefordshire farming lands, founders Pat and Martin, together with a keen eye for restoration and interior design, saw the untapped potential in Brinsop and transformed it into an award-winning venue.

Since starting the business from scratch, a whole lot of love and care has been poured into the estate. The journey has been incredibly gratifying and the outcome magnificent. Pat and Martin, along with the rest of our estate team, would be delighted to welcome you to Brinsop.

Over the years, Brinsop has homed many noble families and celebrities.
