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 was our second visit to the Priory and it does not disappoint. Buy a guide book or you will miss out on a lot of information. The kitchen still has the old range and the original features. Certainly worth a visit.

What a lovely, contemplative place. Nestling by the banks of the River Coquet where we saw deer, kingqfishers, cormorant, heron....a magical exit from 21st century. Painted by JMW Turner in 19th century.
