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 Causeway

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.

Packwood Follies

The 'Follies' were entertainments hosted by Baron Ash in the 1920s and 1930s. They have been brought up to date with a series of contemporary, playful artworks around the park, created by artist Hilary Jack.
