History at its best


Alan Z,
I have been to many Priories and Monasteries around the UK, unfortunately none are still standing in their former glory due to King Henry the 8th had them all pulled down. However Brink Burn survived and if you ever wanted to know what a priory/monastery looked like then this is the site for you. The Pirory is still a place for weddings so I would check before you arrive. We drove past and popped in just before a rehearsal was due to start. To top it off the lady in the admission hut/shop was very friendly and helpful. When I mentioned in passing that my wifes back was bad and she was struggling to walk back she offered her unused staff parking spot so she didn't have to walk the 400 meters back to the car. Brink burn is a small site but well worth a visit.

Brinkburn Priory

This is a place I have often driven past and always thought that I would like to see it. Today I did. It is so beautiful ad peaceful. The colours in the stonework are amazing. We were the only people there and it was lovely to have the place to ourselves. Well worth a visit.

What a Gem


Ray A, Leicestershire, United Kingdom
This place was close to where we were staying so decided to visit. What a gem this place us, the priory was really impressive and the visit was made all the better as there was a local practicing his trumpet- apparently comes every two weeks. The manor is currently being restored but again very interesting. Well worth a couple of hours

Hidden Northumberland gem


Wyn52, Romford, United Kingdom
Pleasant brief walk above River Coquet to lovely Priory.Brilliant place to bring your own picnic as small shop is very limited.Clean porta loos.Very noisy in Manor House (which is empty shell) as Felton Primary school was having their end of term assembly and picnic.Children hurtling round Manor House pretending to be monsters and aliens.Other days are likely to be very tranquil.

Well worth a detour


Odyseus13, Oxford, United Kingdom
This is a small but beautiful little site that is well worth turning off the road for even on a damp drizzly day. It is quiet and unspoilt. The manor house is empty and run down, but it allows for the imagination to build up a picture of what it would have been like when it was in its full glory, as a lovely place to live, beautiful and peaceful. A real treasure. The lady manning the desk was charming and very informative about the site which really helped the visit.
