  • A fantastic example of a medieval moated manor. It has been recently fully opened and represented by the National Trust. Will be returning to enjoy the estate walks soon.
  • Brockhampton, the house, garden, grounds and staff, all utterly charming. Thank-you for a very pleasant afternoon. I would have walked further. Only the boggy area prohibited me. Due to the fact that I wasn't wearing my walking boots. with kind regards Michelle Pickering
  • What a little gem! Lovely estate for walking and great little house. My daughter loved the dressing up stations.
  • Great place. Beautiful scenery. Nice walks. Would be five star but prices are too high.
  • Words do not describe how special this place is. It's like stepping into a Walt Disney film. Went here the first weekend of spring 2017 when all the blossom was out on the trees, and it was magical. I felt truly at peace here and did not want to leave the place. I would highly recommend this place - especially in the spring!
