Additional Location Information
The beautiful county of Herefordshire offers over 1000 miles of predominately unspoiled (and often undiscovered) footpaths.Bespoke Treasure Trails and Walking There are 4 marked trails across the 800 acre estate, all varying in distance and terrain. They are named after the daughters of the family which own the estate, and each trail is marked by stakes denoting the initial letter. From a leisurely 2 mile stroll to a 6 mile hike, there's something for everyone. There is also a fantastic 12 mile Treasure Trail, so you can see all the best bits of your estate, have fun and learn all about Brinsop Court Estate in the process. A specially-designed hand-drawn map features a poem about Brinsop with 24 blank spaces. Follow the marked trails and look out for the birdboxes featuring the missing words to complete the poem. First team back to base wins! Just select your £5 'Treasure Trail Map' when booking.
