Tranquility, atmosphere and majesty

Ross M,
Incredibly atmospheric and inspiring and tranquil, tucked away in a small oasis by the river coquet. This little gem is situated off the lower Rothbury Road which in itself is off the Coldstream Road (A697). Not sure young children would appreciate what's on offer, but to anyone who wishes to put the 21st century to one side for short while it's a must visit. The history of the site is also fascinating

Great self catering venue at Priory Cottage

mjtlee, Richmond, United Kingdom
I have not done self catering before. I think I was seriously spoiled at Brinkburn. Lovely property, very well kitted out with everything you might need, plus loads of extras like limitless wood for the stove, and wonderful bread and supplies when we arrived. The property is also in such a special location that you will remember it forever: on the banks of the Coquet River adjacent to the priory (closed in winter) with nature all around you. I was in seventh heaven.

Fabulous wedding venue

A beautiful woodland setting, fantastic accommodation, a majestic priory and a magical teepee for wedding small or large.

Beautiful & Haunting

Paul R, Bishop Auckland, United Kingdom
This is by far the most atmospheric place I've visited, you can sense the life that once occupied this place. The manor house is eerie and lonely, a great place to explore if you're a ghost-hunter! It's closed now for the winter but I will be back in the spring, I'm drawn to the place as you will be when you visit

Not to be missed

David J, Nottingham, United Kingdom
Worth joining English Heritage. Apart from Brinkburn there are somany other EH sites to see. Give yourself plenty of time. The walk from the car park if further than you think it will be.
