January at Brockhampton

It may be cold and damp but the outdoors is just too beautiful to be shutting yourself away inside. Join us for some winter fun as we reopen the doors to the manor on January weekends.

We kick off the New Year with our annual welly wanging, head to the back of the chapel where you can pick up a welly and see how far you can throw it. We mark out the pitch in metres and family members and friends seem to love the bizarre competition of seeing how far they can ‘wang a welly’.

You might be surprised how much fun you can have.

If you’d like to experience something a little different why not join us on 12 January as we’re joined by Leominster Morris for a winter Wassail in the orchards? This event will involve fire and dance as we bless the orchard, a tradition thought to be followed by a plentiful harvest.

You can also enjoy the tranquillity of the estate throughout the week. We welcome walkers to explore the estate although the facilities are closed so the rolling hills and dingles here can be enjoyed year-round by our supporters, after all we wouldn’t be here without you. On weekends, The Granary will be open serving hot drinks, cake and sandwiches and the shop will be open, keep an eye out for January sale items.  So whatever your plans are for this January don’t forget to visit Brockhampton to make new memories with loved ones this New Year.
