Brinsop Court is very special – it’s a picturesque moated manor house, tucked in the rolling folds of Herefordshire. The house is (as you might expect) built around a courtyard, and protected by a moat that encircles the whole of the main house.

The house works brilliantly for private parties, weddings, business meetings and corporate events.

There are eighteen bedrooms, and eleven bathrooms (sleeping up to thirty-three guests). Four of the bedrooms – all doubles – are on the ground floor, suitable for guests who would rather not use stairs.

The house has a Queen Anne dining room, which seats 26 for a formal dinner, and a large drawing room (the Oak Parlour), with a log fire. There is also a large Games Room, where you can play table-tennis, snooker watch television, dance the night away and make full use of the built-in bar facilities.

The gardens are beautifully kept, with topiary and ivy-covered bowers. There’s a hot tub, for the best-of-bubbly star-gazing.

Edmund’s Choice of Extraordinary Feature

Brinsop’s extraordinary feature was hard to choose (that moat!), but we think the 12th century banqueting hall takes a lot to beat. The hall has an exposed vaulted ceiling, and a large open fireplace and lit by atmospheric candle light. It also has a secret door for surprise exits and entrances!

The hall can be used in several ways, seating 96 guests for dinner, and up to 100 theatre-style.

About the Location

Brinsop Court is deep within a private estate in Herefordshire, 30 minutes’ drive from Hay-on-Wye. The house is set in 800 acres, 250 acres of which is ancient woodland (with innumerable walks).

The nearest village is Tillington, which has a fine country pub called The Bell, famous for making its soon-sold-out cider, ‘Tillington Belle’.

A taxi costs around £20 from Hereford train station.

Things To Do

Woodland walks, Cycling, Fishing, Stalking (Deer), Treasure-trails and clay-pigeon shooting. Would you like something we’ve not mentioned? Brinsop Court has an excellent team to support the organisation of your party or event.

Brinsop was the most incredible setting for our wedding, and also for a weekend with all of our closest family and friends. We felt at home from the moment we walked through the door and the friendly welcome we have received every time we visited made us love it even more. The hard work, organisation and passion the team put into making our wedding day so special was exceptional. We never felt anything was to much trouble and the attention to detail from everyone made us so relaxed - we couldn't have enjoyed the weekend any more! Ivy was an incredible end to the best weekend and the nicest start to married life, its a absolutely beautiful cottage. We have made memories we will never forget and couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding so a HUGE THANK YOU to you all!

We got married on Saturday 19 May 2018 at Brinsop Court. We had exclusive use of the venue from Friday to Sunday. It was amazing - I can't describe how magical the whole weekend was. All our family and friends were captured by such an beauitful and unique venue - I wish we could have stayed longer! Daisy and the team at Brinsop made the wedding day run smoothly and my new husband and I can't thank her enough for such an incident-free weekend. We will be back!! xx

We got married at Brinsop Court May 12th 2018. We arrived the Friday and left Monday. Cannot think of any words to describe it. Every room has its own individual feel and smell, the grounds are beautiful and wouldn’t have chosen any where else to get married. The staff are efficient, warm and welcoming (especially Harriet Duggan our wedding coordinator). From the crisp white sheets to the little welcome notes in each room it’s Perfection. Highly recommended to any one looking for the most magical day. Loved every minute, didn’t want to leave.

Where do we begin?! We got married at Brinsop in December and it truly was the most magical of days. Everything was so well organised and planned (thank you Ellie!) and it felt like it was our very own home for three days - one we didn’t want to leave!! Having the ceremony and reception all in the same place was perfect for us in the winter. The house was so cosy and seasonal with its roaring fires and multiple Christmas trees which added to its beauty - something that was not unnoticed by our guests. The team at Brinsop could not have done more for us and their communication and organisation is second to none. Thank you for giving us the most beautiful day (and for looking after Charlie �!!) x

My daughter and son in law held their marriage ceremony and reception here on 20 December. The venue was all we imagined it would be and more! We were made to feel welcome from our arrival on the Tuesday until our departure on the Thursday. It felt like we were welcoming our guests into our own home. The venue was beautifully decorated for Christmas which certainly added to a magical atmosphere. Our very heartfelt thanks to Pat, Ellie, Daisy, and the rest of the Brinsop team for all off their help and support over the last few months, and a big thank you to Ellie for all of her help on the wedding day itself. I cannot recommend this venue enough.

We hired Brinsop for the weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday. A mixed group of family and friends and we had the most amazing time. My almost 90 year old grandad spent most of the weekend in front of the fire like the lord of the manor. The kids aged 10 months to 14 years, had an absolute ball. Any worries about the little ones and the moat were alleviated with locked doors and a house so big they were more than happy playing inside with that much space to entertain themselves! Happy kids made for happy adults. We all went for walks, rode the bikes, enjoyed the hot tub and took time to appreciate the scenery and views. The Banqueting Hall was such a lovely place for dinner on Saturday evening, it looked amazing with all the candles lit and the catering was delicious. The bedrooms are all individual and gorgeous and I love the fact that by the time we left, people were still discovering parts of the house they hadn’t seen. We ate, we drank, we laughed, we played, we danced, we relaxed.....we loved absolutely every minute of it and made some very special memories that will last a lifetime. I so wish I could find an excuse to do it all over again. I’ll be back one day...

This place is better than five star. It was truly the best day ever and this is largely due to the wonderful staff and service we received from our very first visit. On our first visit, as we neared the top of the driveway, the sight of Brinsop was spectacular and we knew it would be the place we wanted. The welcome was fantastic for all our guests and those who stayed overnight thought it was the most wonderful experience. All of the rooms are exquisite and were a great place for our guests to take shelter from the glorious sunshine and enjoy a piece of cake and a chat together. The service throughout the day was seamless and so unintrusive. Our glass was always full and we were guided to the right place at the right time sensitively without intruding on personal moments, allowing the day to run like clockwork. It was completely stress free for the whole party and nothing was too much to ask. A particular mention goes to Rachel who went out of her way to make sure that everything ran smoothly. We have some wonderful memories of a magical day in a spectacular venue and we hope to return one day �

Brinsop Court and its staff are a cut above the rest. We got married here October 2016 and they couldn't do enough for us. They really do go the extra mile and treat you as as individuals. If you're looking for class, individuality and somewhere where they make you feel welcome and special. This is the place. We couldn't rate them highly enough!!

After 6 years of searching home and abroad for a wedding venue we visited Brinsop Court, booked the venue immediately and were overwhelmed at the experience we received. The staff were extremely helpful, they floated in and out when needed, nothing was too much trouble, the house, facilities and views were spectacular and our whole day and weekend was just perfect. Safe to say I think our families will want to return at some point in the future for another big event. You guys have got something seriously special here and we can't thank you enough for giving us both an incredible experience and life long memories. I am not surprised at all at the recent awards you have received, I am sure there are more to come!!

As a Hair Stylist I am lucky enough to work at so many stunning Venues but I must say this place really is at the top of my list of favorites. The property and grounds are beautiful and the Bridal Suite is incredibly light and spacious which is wonderful for not only the Bride and her bridal party but her Hair Stylist, make up artist and photographer to all work together too. Plenty of space for us all. Fantastic wedding venue and wonderful team to look after you in planning and hosting your day!

What an amazing place! We attended for our daughter's wedding yesterday and it couldn't have been better! The rooms are fantastic and have to be seen to be believed. Everywhere was spotless. Roaring fires. Absolutely perfect for a winter wedding. The staff are amazing. Nothing is too much trouble. Ali was fantastic; she is there from dawn to dusk, anything you want she's already thought of and anything you need she's already done. She was particularly helpful in changing the sofa bed in the downstairs bedroom in Tyrrells House for a proper single when she realised it was being used by my 76 year old mother (something we had not asked her to do but she was not happy with her using a sofa bed). Her attention to detail is outstanding. Thank you Ali for making our two days run so smoothly. You're an absolute star!

Lovely country retreat with all the family for Christmas. Above and beyond our expectations would definitely recommend to friends.

I stayed here for a long weekend in the "Bailey" quarter. Wow is an understatement. The rooms are generous, gorgeous and the views are stunning. Ali who helped organize the weekend was such a great help and provided lovely homemade pre cooked food for us all. If anything, it would of been nice to have an option of a thinner duvet in the bedrooms. The room I stayed in was quite hot (despite having turned the radiators off). Such a shame I only stayed for a weekend!
