After crossing your own footbridge over the moat and entering the house you will find a spacious, warm, flag-stoned hallway.
Dancey House is a substantial wing of the larger Tudor Courthouse. It offers complete privacy if you simply seek space and peace in which to relax, study or even work.
However, if you wish to join other friends who may be staying at one or more of our other properties here at Tudor Courthouse, Dancey House interconnects perfectly.

The beautiful county of Herefordshire offers over 1000 miles of predominately unspoiled (and often undiscovered) footpaths. Treasure Trails and Walking There are 4 marked trails across the 800 acre estate, all varying in distance and terrain. They are named after the daughters of the family who own the estate, and each trail is marked by stakes denoting the initial letter. From a leisurely 2 mile stroll to a 6 mile hike, there's something for everyone.
There is also a fantastic 12 mile Treasure Trail, so you can see all the best bits of your estate, have fun, and learn all about Brinsop Court Estate in the process. The specially-designed hand-drawn map features a poem about Brinsop with 24 blank spaces. Follow the marked trails and look out for the birdboxes featuring the missing words to complete the poem. First team back to base wins!
Cycle Hire Hop on your bike to collect the bread and milk from Tillington Village Store, or earn that pint at The Bell Inn; whether you enjoy the paths around the estate or explore further afield, it's great to have a bike to hand. You're welcome to bring your own, or you can hire bikes out at £15 per bike per stay.
Birdwatching and animal spotting Brinsop has a dedicated group of ornithologists and bird watchers who like nothing more than exploiting this rare and peaceful area for those special spots! - Roe deer - Nuthatch - Tree creeper - Nightjar - Hobby - Goshawk - Perregrin falcon - Muntjac - Canada Geese
Fishing The local area is awash with great spots for fly fishing and angling; feel free to ask for more information. There are 200 trout in the moat surrounding the manor house in which you're welcome to start! Perfect to cook on the fire pit afterwards as the sun goes down.
Clay Pigeon Shooting The house is able to bring in traps and guns for clay pigeon shooting if you fancy that real 'Lord of the Manor' experience and a little bit of friendly competition during your stay. Ask Oliver's VIP Concierge Team for more details.
Creative Creative classes and experiences, events and conferences. Anything from photography, art, and cookery to recitals, weddings and conferences. The Banqueting Hall and Elizabethan Library are great spaces to gather.
