Everything you need to know before visiting Brockhampton

Welcome to Brockhampton
Brockhampton estate is open daily for walks; your four-legged friends are welcome to join you, but please make sure they remain on a lead at all times as we have animals grazing. The second-hand bookshop is also open daily as is the Granary food kiosk which serves hot and cold drinks and snacks to take away.
When you arrive at Visitor Reception please have your membership cards ready to show if you’re a National Trust member. You do not need to pre-book your visit to Brockhampton, if you wish to visit at a quieter time, please consider visiting on a weekday afternoon.
Face coverings are recommended in enclosed, crowded areas.
You can find out more information on the walks on the estate by clicking here, we are not currently given out maps on site, so you may wish to print one out at home but please be cautious as some of our walks may be closed or changed slightly since the map was printed. An up-to-date map can be found at both car parks, why not take a photo on yor phone and use this for referance? Please note over the winter months we have been felling ash trees infected with the disease ash dieback so some walking routes may have temporary diversions. You can find out more about ash dieback by clicking here. You're very welcome to bring your dog with you to Brockhampton but please do keep it on a lead and under control at all times due to protect grazing livestock and deer in the woodlands, we politely ask even if your dog does have perfect recall to still avoid letting it off as this can confuse other visitors with dogs.
Both blocks of WCs will remain open to visitors and are cleaned regularly throughout the day, additional locks have been added to assure we can stick to a one-in one-out policy.
Earlier in the year we made the decision to permanently close the Blue Orchard Walk, in the future this will be replaced with a new walk with accessible pathways. Sadly, we have also made the decision to temporarily close the Natural Play Trail (Orange Walk) for the time being due to ongoing work, in particular felling diseased ash trees. Whilst out on a walk at Brockhampton please help us keep the estate tidy and nature-friendly by either taking any rubbish home with you or using one of the designated bins on site.
Every visit you make helps us get back on our feet a little more during these unprecedented times. Thank you for your support, we can’t wait to welcome you here.
