Reasons for trip

We stayed on the National Trust Brockhampton Estate in a lovely remote cottage called Old Linceter, with wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. Great walking from Lower Brockhampton medieval manor house which is a wonderful 14th century timber framed house with roses against the wall, surrounded by a moat and accessed by a charming timber framed gatehouse – such a romantic setting!

There is wheelchair access into the ground floor of Lower Brockhampton via a ramp and around some of the estate.

Lovely lunch at the Old Apple store tea room, and this is open at the week-ends even in the winter when the house is closed (check website for details), so the estate is a great venue for walking at any time of the year, with various trails, some with sculpture, or past the Lawn Pool with plenty of wildlife and rare farming breeds of cattle and sheep. You could spend all day on the estate exploring if you like walking.
