The place for dining, drinking and dancing the night away

In 2020 we completed The Knot Barn, a traditionally built oak barn with a feature bar and magical views over the landscaped gardens and Herefordshire countryside. With floor-to-ceiling windows that open along the whole front of the barn, your day can have an al fresco feeling, whatever the time of year.

The barn works perfectly for larger numbers, and for smaller groups we can create sections to keep it feeling intimate. It’s a beautiful backdrop as it is, but we can also recommend local companies if you’d like help with decorations and dressing.

The Boardwalk

Located just a short walk from the manor house, The Knot Barn is connected by a Larch wooded boardwalk, constructed by our master craftsman.

With glowing pergolas, surrounded by picturesque landscaping, the journey to the barn is another moment to remember.

The Bar

Our feature bar has an impressive menu starring draft ales & lager, cider, an array of gins and other spirits, plus a selection of local and regional favourites that are well worth a try.

The bar is card only and can stay open until midnight.

The Knot Barn projector system

The Tech

Acoustic panels provide an outstanding listening experience when paired with our state-of-the-art AV system. We have a 4m screen that can project films and images, and we can stream your wedding to loved ones far and wide who can’t be there in person.

For your comfort there is a carefully controlled temperature system and a ready to go console for your live band or DJ to plug straight into.

As the dancing continues long into the night, appetites are bound to reappear.

Our wood-fired, clay pizza oven is the perfect addition to your evening festivities.

What Our Guests Say

“We fell in love with Brinsop after viewing many other venues. Being local to Herefordshire we had lots of choice but Brinsop had everything we wanted and more! Beautiful grounds, lots of accommodation, the Knot Barn for our reception and the stunning Manor House to spend the weekend with our nearest and dearest. Daisy was a particular joy in helping our day run smoothly and filled us with reassurance and trust. Our only wish is to have stayed longer! Truly the best weekend and we would do it all over again.”

Tom + Adele,

“This was our third stay at the Cottages…as gorgeous as always. We took a peaceful break away from parenthood and busy lives for a tranquil stay in this beautiful piece of countryside. From the comfiest of beds, to waking to the sound of nothing but birdsong, to breakfast cooked on the Aga, a breathtaking walk up Credenhills, a glass of wine in The Bell, watching sunset and the stars come out from the hot-tub, to the stunning bath then an evening in front of the log -burner…. It doesn’t get better than Ivy Cottage. We will be back for a fourth visit very soon.”

“Thank you for facilitating a fabulous stay.  It was a perfect size for the 33 of us, and we were able to use every location to good effect.  The decorations were fabulous, and the banqueting hall was breath-taking!  Please give our special thanks to Carly and Jonathan for being so responsive when we were there.”
