Overview

The beautiful 12th century church of the Augustinian priory of Brinkburn survives completely roofed and restored. Picturesquely set by a bend in the River Coquet, it is reached by a scenic ten minute walk from the car park. Parts of the monastic buildings are incorporated into the elegant adjacent manor house. Brinkburn Priory's doors will be open to visitors from Wednesdays to Sundays and Bank Holidays from the 1 April - 30 September 2014. Don't Miss Scenic views of the river Coquet The wonderfully restored 12th century church The beautiful grounds and elegant manor house

Parking is at the top of the hill then it’s a five to ten minute walk down to the Priory. There is a small portocabin selling tickets and a couple of portaloos. The house next to the priory is an empty shell but fun to...More

We visited Brinkburn Priors for a friends wedding. Lovely venue, amazing view. It was a bit different as they had the teepee so this was something we had never been to before.

We love this place. The grounds are managed sympathetically for local biodiversity with cow parsley frothing in the Summer. Look round the peaceful Priory then visit the old house behind and be wowed by the romantic ruination. A café on site would be a great...More

Expecting a ruin but it is more or less intact and now used for weddings. The manor house next door is also very interesting to look around although it is unfurnished and only has ground floor access. Car park is some distance and its a...More
