Brockhampton is a special place with a rather olde-world feel about it. Little has changed here over the centuries, you could call it a hidden gem, nestled deep into the Herefordshire countryside.
In the eighteenth century, the manor house was abandoned by the family, in favour of a new-build red brick mansion on the estate. Lower Brockhampton Manor was tenanted out to farmworkers which meant little was changed or altered, leaving us with a rare survival of a medieval house. Today, visitors can explore the manor house and discover each room reflects a different era in Brockhampton’s history, from the medieval Great Hall to a nostalgic 1950s parlour.
In the surrounding countryside, local and rare breed sheep graze amongst apple orchards, stone farm buildings nestle into the hillsides and the quiet drone of tractors complete this quiet and beautiful place. One of the annual highlights here is the spring blossom which coats the boughs of the elderly fruit trees, clouding the manor house with a floral frame. Throughout autumn, visitors are welcome to come and pick fruit here.
Nature-lovers will be in their element at Brockhampton which is rich in wildlife and hosts many habitats for different mammals, reptiles and birds. Several way-marked routes run through the estate, exploring dingles, woodlands and pools, offering many opportunities to stop and reconnect with nature.
Visitors flock to Brockhampton in spring to see the incredible damson blossom. Visitors are welcome to picnic at this special place.
