Christmas Gathering

rjcb41, Limavady, United Kingdom
What a fantastic find !! We decided to have a large family Christmas, which meant finding somewhere that could accommodate 4 family’s (18 folk in total) and which was accessible by us all. After some detailed research we settled upon BrinkBurn. This ticked a lot of boxes for us. Price , location , luxury The cottages and the stables have been renovated and turned into luxury accommodation. Spacious and well thought out with a mixture of old and new. The owners have created somewhere very special. The Priory and family home are impressive with a winding river running past. Picture post card beauty. The owners live onsite and are there to answer any questions and help should you require it but we where left to our own devises which suited us. They seem to have a good balance of contact between the guests and the Brinkburn team. Our family are already discussing our next visit and have no doubt we will return.

Family wedding

Brinkburn Priory was a beautiful setting for the wedding. The grounds were not only beautiful for the photographs but also to visit. On the grounds of the priory there are also cottages to let, which are lovely. The whole day was quite wonderful.

Fascinating architecture and design

Happened upon this English Heritage intact Priory and crumbling Abbey House on the way to Cragside (very near and nice for a dual visit if you have membership to EH and National Trust). They were preparing for a wedding but we were welcomed as the property stays open to the public during events the guide said and we were put at ease to still have a look around. The stained glass in the Priory is beautiful, the house well worth a look as those preserving it have managed to show the layers of structure, it would be beautiful to restore but you’d probably need to be a billionaire! Look out for where an enterprising bird has made a nest, for the lacy metalwork of the bell sculpture and the old tiled range. We really enjoyed our visit.

A hidden gem

Tucked away off the beaten track, this places oozes atmosphere and history. The Priory (church) is lovely and relitavely unspoilt. The manor house next door is open but in a poor state of repair (funds awaited!). You'll need the guide book. And a very helpful lady in the ticket office

Thank you, English Heritage!

A fascinating and enjoyable visit to Brinkburn Priory and manor house, both steeped in atmosphere and intrigue. The priory, set in charmingly beautiful landscape, is sympathetically lit with subtle organ music playing. Among other treasures to behold, sun streams through jewel-coloured stained glass windows, beautifully mottling the walls and floor. The manor house has a richness of places to explore - the basement especially captures the imagination. Listen carefully - can you hear yesteryear voices echoing in the vaulted cells? Our day was perfectly complimented talking to the personable Site Manager Juliet Phipps. Her pride and passion for English Heritage (the Priory in particular) is obvious. She delightfully breathes life into history.
