Tudor hunting lodge to fashionable home, set in a spectacular estate
Newark Park stands proud on top of the Cotswold escarpment, looking down into the Ozleworth valley to the Mendips beyond. This remote corner of south Gloucestershire is a secret and unspoilt place, with barely a sign of modern life visible in any direction. A place of architectural intrigue, quaint gardens and sprawling parkland there is much to see and do at Newark.
Founded by an influential English courtier to Henry VIII in 1550; the house and estate since went from boom to bust, to its dramatic rescue by a Texan architect in the 20th century. Newark has an incredible story to tell.
Winter at Newark
Apart from a few special seasonal events, the house is now closed for the winter.
There's our Christmas fair to look forward to (Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 December) and then our snowdrop openings (Saturday 15 - Sunday 23 February) to tide you over until we fully reopen on 5 March 2014.
Don't forget that there are still plenty of walks to be had around the wider Estate which is open dawn to dusk 365 days of the year. You can download our Cotswold ramble trail here, plus there are waymarked paths for you to follow from the car park.
