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.
Birdwatching and animal spotting Brinsop has a dedicated crown 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 which you're welcome to start with! They are perfect to cook on the fire pit afterwards as the sun goes down.
Clay Pigeon Shooting The owners are 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. Contact Oliver's VIP Concierge Team for more details.
