Interior Description
Gamekeeper Cottage has a pristine homely but modern kitchen with a cream AGA, it leads into a comfortable sitting room and onto a terrace with a private hot tub. Is there anything better than a glass of fizz, with your favourite person, under the stars.

A cosy sitting room with sofas to curl up on to read or watch a film, is warm and welcoming, especially with the wood burner, for which we will provide the kindling and logs.

Climb the original staircase to the super kingsized bed and beautiful high quality bathroom, complete with walk-in shower, teardrop free-standing bath and plasma TV.

Take in the views while you sunbathe on the terrace, but feel free to explore the whole of this private estate at your leisure; this is your home during your stay. We have cleared special footpaths of about 6 miles in total for your own personal use.

The beautiful county of Herefordshire offers over 1000 miles of predominately unspoiled (and often undiscovered) footpaths.

Bespoke 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 which 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. A 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! Just select your £5 'Treasure Trail Map' when booking.   

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.
