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

The Priory is a Grade 1 listed building and deservedly so. The adjoining Manor House is a shell but interesting nevertheless. The grounds and setting are beautiful. The lady and gentleman on reception were extremely helpful and friendly. Well worth a visit.
