This 688 hectare (1700 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.
At the heart of the Brockhampton estate lies Lower Brockhampton - a medieval moated manor house with a beautiful timber framed gatehouse. Visitors can see the Great Hall, open to the rafters which were constructed from wood from the estate.
