An ideal place to spend time with friends or family. The team were so friendly and helpful before arrival and during our stay. The cottage was cosy with a log burner and the en-suite facilities for both bedrooms were especially welcome. The suggestions board of places to visit and where to eat was an added bonus as was the welcome pack. We would certainly visit again.
We absolutely loved the Stables and can’t wait to book another few days here later in the year. Highly recommend! A minor point that will need fixing but didn’t really affect us - the plug on the en suite bath didn’t seal properly so we weren’t able to use that bath.
Sorry to be picky! But if there was one thing, it would be that we are aware it’s a dog friendly cottage, but unfortunately there was a strong dog smell before we arrived. It was a beautiful, warm, cosy cottage! And we can’t wait to come back and get married next year ☺️ Thank-you!
This was our second stay at Brinkburn but our first in Blakey House which has a great layout for 2 couples; plenty of social space but also private bedroom/bathroom accommodation.

We stayed in the priory cottage for our wedding weekend. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Every effort has been made to ensure priory cottage was perfect for our arrival.

We literally cannot wait to stay again in the future and enjoy Brinkburn once more.
Following months of stressful work environment for both myself and my partner, we decided finally to take a break. We were travelling from Leicester and expecting a 3 to 3.5 hour journey. We were delayed leaving Leicester due to work commitments and finally started off at around 5.30pm. We didn’t stop at services to avoid arriving at the destination when it was too dark. After 2 traffic incidents during our journey which caused further delays we finally arrived at Brinkburn around 10.30pm - it was pitch black and a rural location - no street lamps.
