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 house is open for timed tours, daily, except Mondays. Book these on arrival at Visitor Reception. They are led by some of our volunteers who have some fascinating facts at their fingertips.
Parts of the gardens here at Packwood are very fragile and sometimes have to be closed to protect them. Please call the property before you visit to avoid disappointment
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 artworks around the park created by artist Hilary Jack.
Watch out for them as you walk around the grounds.
Kids can get in touch with their inner adventurer and become an Eggsplorer for the day, as they follow clues to complete our family Cadbury Easter Egg Trails, or take a chance to see the house by night and discover the history of the collection with our Conservation and Engagement Manager, Jane Birdsall.
