A fascinating dog friendly, site that time has bypassed. Magnificent buildings in the process of restoration.

The Priory and the mansion have been made safe and restoration is happening (slow time). This means you can wander - with your dogs, even indoors - around huge buildings and wonder what they must have been like in the day. A lovely position down in a wooded valley next to the river. 400m walk from the car park and back on a smooth gravel track.

Peachful and Quiet

Cliff J, London, United Kingdom
The walk down the path from the car park is lovely and peaceful and sets the scene for the tranquillity of the Priory. The acoustics in the Priory are excellent and concerts are held on some Sundays through the summer; check the web-site for details. There is not a lot to see inside the Priory but its very peaceful and a great place for contemplation. The Manor house next-door built on the site of the Priory Cloister is pretty sad and the upper part fairly derelict and not accessible. You can access the ground floor as well as the courtyard and cellars. In its heyday the manor house must have been stunning with its setting alongside the River Coquet. Even without any furniture inside it's easy to visualise the beauty of the setting and surroundings. It's not open on a Monday or Tuesday and only at weekends outside the summer season.

Tranquil setting for a most beautiful Priory

juliethetraveller123, Greater Manchester, United Kingdom
Amazed at the enormous height of the priory with its beautiful colourful stained glass windows. Very pleasant atmosphere to the whole place situated along the river approx. 10min walk from car park. Open to public Wed-Sun. The priory is sometimes used for weddings . The unrestored manor house is a shell with no furniture. Worth buying the guide book for more detail on the priory and manor house. Hopefully they will provide an audioguide in the future as this place would be perfect for this. It was lovely to be able to visit the whole place with my dog even inside the Priory itself. There are occasional music concerts in the Priory.

A hidden gem

a lovely relaxing stroll down a leafy lane,and time to sit, soak up the atmosphere, or in my case, listen to the birds and the river in the sunshine

Wedding at the Priory

Trish H,
I recently attended a wedding at Brinkburn Priory. What a beautiful setting for a Wedding ! The Priory itself is so lovely shame the Manor House is unrestored. Stayed in Rothbury which is a picturesque place. Lovely area
