Traditionally farmed estate and medieval manor house
This 688-hectare (1,700-acre) estate was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1946 and still maintains traditional farms and extensive areas of woodland, including ancient oak and beech. Visitors can enjoy a variety of walks through park and woodland, which combine to form a rich habitat for wildlife such as the dormouse, buzzard and raven. A stone-flagged trail leads to the Lawn Pool and provides some access for those with disabilities. At the heart of the estate lies Lower Brockhampton House, a late 14th-century moated manor house with a beautiful timber-framed gatehouse and interesting ruined chapel
