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.
Graham Baron Ash acquired Packwood in the early 20th century and restored the original Tudor farmhouse, saving furniture, panelling, floors and fireplaces from other country houses at risk from demolision. Find out more about those changes, and how the house you see today was created, through old photographs, watercolours, maps and plans.
