‘The Stables’ used to house the horses that served the residents of the adjacent manor house and completes a unique collection of buildings including the Priory and Mill. Brinkburn has been occupied from the early 12th century. The Stables has now been superbly converted to a spacious and luxurious holiday retreat which comfortably sleeps up to 6 adults in 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. There is an additional room with a folding bed for a child of 12yrs or under and 2 additional children (max 12 yrs) may be accommodated on folding beds if required (small charge).
Priory Cottage is attached to the Stables but is self contained with a separate entrance and seating area.. It is ideal for a couple with one bedroom.
If both properties are taken together an additional single room becomes available allowing the total number of beds as follows 3 doubles, 1 twin or double, and additional zed beds in bedrooms by prior arrangement.
Bel House is the former lodge keeper’s accommodation at the start of the drive suitable for one or two couples or a family. It used to stand on its own as a single story building but it has over time been incorporated into a terrace of houses which alongside barns and out buildings makes up Brinkburn Home Farm. Converted in 2014 this property will sleep four people with an option of double and a twin room or two double rooms. It has its own south facing garden and separate entrance and parking..
