The award-winning restoration work of Brinton Hall includes a remodelling of the west front and extensive interior, including the unbricking of five Georgian windows.
Outside, the gardens have been planted for year-round interest, especially trees and shrubs. There is a woodland garden, snowdrop theatre, formal lawns leading to a ha-ha. The furthest lawn overlooks the parkland (now a county wildlife site), lake and woods. There is also an 18th century walled garden used for fruit, vegetable and cut flower growing, an apiary and an orchard planted with a wide variety of fruit trees.
Displays include fine stone age tools found in Brinton, photographs of important Brereton textiles, e g the Anna Margaretta bedhangings, Roman coins and materials consistent with a Roman villa, and the story of Nelson’s staircase.
Visitors enjoy a tour of the principal ground-floor and first-floor rooms. There follows a guided tour of the grounds, taking in the history of the landscape, overview of the village and church, plus a walk to the orchard and walled garden. (Proximity to the bees is to be avoided!).
Snowdrop and house tours in February include lunch and a long walk over rough ground. Outdoor clothing and waterproof footwear needed.
