Notice: It is our Christmas Fair this weekend. If you wish to visit the house please pick up a timed ticket when you arrive. They are not bookable in advance.

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.

Winter visiting

In November, join us for volunteer led tours of the house. In December, the downstairs of the house will be open and decorated festively for visitors to explore at their leisure.

The garden will also be open for volunteer led tours and will be subject to availability.

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 artworks around the park created by artist Hilary Jack.

Watch out for them as you walk around the grounds.

What's on

Come to our Christmas Fair and browse the gift, food and craft stalls, enjoy Christmas lunch or mince pies in the Garden Kitchen, hear carols from local choirs and bands and create your own decorations to take home.
