The house is originally 16th-century, yet its interiors were extensively restored between the 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.
This atmospheric house dates from the 15th century and was the home of the Ferrers family for 500 years. The house and interiors reflect its heyday in the Elizabethan era, when it was a haven for persecuted Catholics, there are three priest's holes. There is a delightful garden with stewponds and a romantic lake and nature walk.
Home to the Lucy family since the 15th century, whose stories are told throughout the house by their portraits, the objects they collected from around the world and the design influence they had on the house and parkland. Step into the house today and you will see how it was remodelled in Victorian times by Mary Elizabeth Lucy. The gardens include a formal parterre, sensory garden, woodland walk and the wider parkland (inspired by 'Capability' Brown) which offers miles of walks and views across the River Avon. A herd of fallow deer has been in the park since Tudor times.
