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 - This year we will be opening the gardens under the NGS (National Garden Scheme) on Thursday 21st May 2015 and Wednesday 1st July 2015 (2-5pm) 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. We are also delighted to be opening the Gardens again on Saturday 8th August 2015 (10am - 4pm) to raise funds for the NSPCC/Childline. Valuers from Byrnes of Chester will also be here on this day so you can bring along those items that you have also wondered about and take part in Chirk's equivalent to the Antique Roadshow !
We are looking to start a group of garden volunteers to work throughout the gardens on a variety of tasks in the West Garden and Ornamental Shrubbery. We have also just been granted planning consent to restore the unusual double Walled Garden created by Charlotte, Viscountess Dungannon in the early 1800’s. This is currently derelict and we are excited that we are now able to start work clearing and landscaping the Outer Walled Garden and to start re-establishing the vegetable beds within the Inner Wall Garden. There will be a wide variety of jobs to cater for a range of gardening knowledge and experience. If you are interested in joining this group of volunteers, please contact us with details of your experience via email firstname.lastname@example.org, or by post to: Mrs Kate Hill-Trevor, The Estate Office, Brynkinalt, Chirk, Wrexham, LL14 5NS or Tel: 01691 773425
