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, every day except Mondays. You can book these on arrival at Visitor Reception, and they are led by some of our volunteers who have some fascinating facts at their fingertips.
Although some of the garden is shut over the winter months, you can still join one of our knowledgeable, volunteers who give guided walks around the gardens,
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.
