Much-restored Tudor house, park and garden with notable topiary
The culmination of a lifetime of dreams: salvaged objects and exotic pieces come together in a Jacobean meets Edwardian style. Beautiful, homely, warm and welcoming. We can't put it better than a visitor in the 1920s did: A house to dream of, a garden to dream in.
The house was originally built in the 16th century, yet its interiors were extensively restored between the First and Second World Wars by Graham Baron Ash to create a fascinating 20th-century evocation of domestic Tudor architecture.
Packwood House contains a fine collection of 16th-century textiles and furniture, and the gardens have renowned herbaceous borders and a famous collection of yews.
The historic causeway next to the Lake is a man-made dam that holds the lake back. It is over 300 years old and is in need of urgent repairs and we are fortunate to have received funding from Natural England to do this. The first phase of the works starts in August and should be complete by October. During this time we will be carrying out a programme of permanent repair.
The causeway will be closed to visitors during the works, because it is so narrow. Access to all other parts of the gardens are open.
The generous donation of a 'Tramper' from the Patrick Trust earlier this month is currently facilitating full access to Packwood’s park and gardens. Follow the link for more information on the Patrick Trust and how their kind donation is enabling visitors to explore all that Packwood has to offer.
Share your love of the countryside this Autumn by joining this year's Great British Walk in partnership with Cotswold Outdoor. We have some great walks around Packwood House.
Join us in October for Hallowe'en. Lots of scary goings on with a spooky outdoor trail and take-home activities.
