BRANTWOOD, originally being the principal building of a small estate, is an
attractive country residence, dating from the early 18th century. Its olde
worlde charm with oak beams and log fires in the winter, conjures up an
atmosphere of the past with the comforts of the present.
Reputedly an early Quaker meeting place, Brantwood stands in three acres
of secluded gardens in the picturesque village of Stainton.
