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

This is a quiet, unassuming place, small but historically significant as it's one of the few (maybe only) existent priories in the country that's largely still intact. It's in a very scenic location and as some interesting architectural features, such as the Norman tracery around...More

Be prepared for a little walk down a very good driveway. The two buildings are in a very scenic location. The house is very interesting but be prepared for a very basic interior and you can only see the ground and basement floors. Well worth...More

It's about 10 miles. A 2.5 hour walk, although in wedding clothes, probably best to go for the 20 minute drive.
