Create an itinerary including National Trust - Brockhampton Estate
The Brockhampton Estate is a National Trust property in Herefordshire, England, and is to the north of the A44 Bromyard to Worcester road, opposite the northern edge of Bringsty Common and east from the town of Bromyard.

The significant aspect of the Estate is Lower Brockhampton, a timber framed manor house that dates to the late 14th century, surrounded by a moat, and entered by a restored gatehouse at the front of the house. The house is surrounded by 1,000 acres (400 ha) of farmland, some of it parkland, with specimen trees and 700 acres (280 ha) of woodland. In 2010, the National Trust undertook a major restoration of the house using traditional wattle and daub building methods.
The Brockhampton Estate was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1946 by Colonel John Lutley, in whose family it had been for more than twenty generations, although the name of the family had changed several times through marriage.
The site of the medieval village of Studmarsh is thought to be on the Estate; in 2012, an archaeological dig unearthed the foundations of two buildings that may have been part of the village.

  • Very confusing signage, and when I mentioned this at visitor reception I got the response 'many people say this, you wont be the last'. I expect better signage and better customer service

  • We visited on a quiet day foggy to start but soon lifted . The manor is a fabulous example of its times . We took the shortest walk around the orchard areas where much restoration is taking place...

  • This small manor, gate house and moat are located in a relatively remote, beautiful and peaceful valley bottom. It is well worth taking an hour to visit the house or even better taking the time to walk through the orchards, forest and farmland. Each room is dedicated to a past occupant of the house, and are appropriately furnished. All the rooms of the house are open but the stairs are quite steep and floor boards uneven. However there are adequate grab handles if needed. The guides are friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. A lovely low key visit.
  • Lovely little farm house to walk around with different times lines in each room. Done the green walk around the woodland but it took us less then 2 hours. It is a lovely unique little place different to most national trust I have been too quite quirky. Will be visiting again.
