The Manor House
With views over the moat, gardens and winding drive, each room has its own story to tell
The manor is Grade I listed and dates back to the early 14th Century. With ornate ceilings, mullioned windows, grand fireplaces, beams and staircases scattered throughout the house, Brinsop sets a truly romantic scene.
Owners Pat and Martin have spent a great deal of time and care renovating the manor, to return it to its former glory. Pat’s younger years were spent growing up on a Herefordshire farm, but she has always had an interest in interior design. When the opportunity arose at Brinsop, she took it, ran with it and has created something extra special.
Within each of the four wings, Pat has brought colour, texture and pattern together, leaving the original features to sing amongst the comforts of modern living. Brinsop is a house that invites you to feel at home.
