Welcome to the Brynkinalt Estate, home to the ancestral Trevor family since 942. Located in the beautiful surrounding of the Welsh/Shropshire border, the home is steeped in history but focused on the future.
The Trevor Family are working hard to ensure that the Brynkinalt Estate retains a viable place in the nation's heritage. Through a programme of investment and restoration, the estate provides quality contemporary accommodation for both the business and residential community, creating a wonderful environment in which to live and work.
The estate has taken advantage of changes in traditional methods of commerce and communication technology to create a diverse and successful business community at the Brynkinalt Business Centre. The Centre blends high quality, modern business accommodation within the beautiful, historic setting of a traditional working estate, offering businesses a truly unique setting in which to work and grow.
The estate is keen to share both its heritage and landscape with visitors, always extending a warm welcome to guests. We hold open days and riding clubs at the hall, host conferences and activity days, and can even help you to plan the wedding of your dreams, which will take place in the stunning setting of the Estate.
From the ongoing maintenance of the Hall and restoration of its gardens, to the sustainable management of woodland for renewable energy, Brynkinalt is committed to ensuring the estate maintains its impressive design and special place in the nation's heritage, whilst also providing great benefit to future generations and the local community.
SAVE THE DATE - Next year we will be opening the gardens under the NGS (National Garden Scheme) on Thursday 21st May 2015 and Wednesday 1st July 2015. The NGS has approx 3,800 gardens that open across England and Wales and the scheme has raised over £22 million for nursing, caring and gardening charities, including Marie Curie Cancer Care, Macmillian Cancer Support, Help the Hospices and Parkinsons UK, over the last 10 years. We hope that our many rhododendrons, camelias and other spring shrubs in the Woodland Shrubbery will be in full bloom for the 21st May, while the July date will give visitors a chance to see the maturation of planting in the West Garden. The Gardens will also be open to the public for a fund raising event for the NSPCC/Childline in mid August (date to be confirmed).
In June 2013, we were delighted to host a party in support of Walk on Wales. The evening helped to raise local awareness of the teams which set off from the steps of the Welsh Parliament in August 2013 and walked in relay along the newly opened 870 mile Welsh Coastal Path. The walk finished 70 days later back in Cardiff on the steps of Llandaff Cathedral, raising much needed funds for the Welsh Guards’ Afghanistan Appeal and Combat Stress. With a Chicago speakeasy theme Brynkinalt-style, glamorous guests embraced the 1920's dress code and enjoyed cocktails, gambling tables and dancing in the Great Hall. Thanks to the very kind sponsorship by local companies including Kronospan Limited, Wynnstay Group Plc, Castell Howell Foods, The Green Electrician, Belton Cheese and Miles Macadam Construction & Surfacing, the party raised nearly £8,000 for this special cause.

On Saturday 30th August 2014, the Gardens were open to the public for a fund raising event for the NSPCC/Childline. The tea and homemade cakes were very popular as was the face painter, and the weather was kind while visitors explored the formal West Garden and the woodland Ornamental Shrubbery. We were delighted to raise just over £1,700 so a large thank you goes out to all of those who helped on the day and to everyone who supported the event by coming along. We hope to repeat the event next year (date yet to be confirmed - will be posted here soon).
