Brockhampton in the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty, is known for its picturesque moated manor house, Brockhampton Estate, which was built over 600 years ago and portrays life through the years. The estate covers 1,700 acres and includes woodland, orchards, parkland, and farmland. 

Brockhampton Estate offers visitors a range of activities and attractions, including guided tours of the manor house, walks through the estate’s gardens and orchards, and a granary kiosk where visitors can purchase local produce. The estate is also home to several events throughout the year, including outdoor theater performances, art exhibitions, and seasonal celebrations.

Overall, Brockhampton is a beautiful and historic village that offers visitors a chance to experience the natural beauty and rich history of the Cotswolds region, and there are plenty of honey-coloured houses and old churches to explore.

The All Saints Church has an extraordinary design and is quite different to others found around the region, and is one of the few churches to have kept a thatched roof.

There are no shops in the village, so make sure you stock up before arriving and be warned, mobile phone reception can be patchy but the Wi-Fi signal was strong when the Travel Cotswolds team stayed there.

There was a wonderful large 16th century pub here named The Craven Arms, and you always got a warm welcome by the bar staff and locals alike. Had a very nice, rustic countryside pub and served solid, quality traditional pub fare. Unfortunately, according to this story, the pub closed recently.

From Heathrow Airport to Brockhampton in the Cotswolds takes around two hours and is accessible via a narrow, country lane without street lamps or reflective road studs. During the day, this is manageable, and the scenery is amazing, although you may come across tractors or other farm traffic. No matter how slow the traffic is, the narrow roads and blind bends make overtaking dangerous.

At night, the driving is a little more challenging because it’s often pitch dark and the roads are almost deserted.

Because the region is popular, tourist traffic often clogs up the main roads and the GPS may take you on a wild detour to avoid this. Finally, country roads are quiet and therefore attract deer, foxes, badgers, rabbits, pheasants and other wildlife, so take maximum care when driving day or night.

Overall, the Brockhampton in the Cotswolds is in the very heart of what personifies the region because of its lush green hills and valleys, and a peaceful place far and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing escape or an active adventure to explore the countryside, Brockhampton is the place to go to experience a beautiful part of England.
