Travel | Packwood House

Another week another National Trust property

This week I had the pleasure of visiting Packwood House, a beautiful timber-framed Tudor manor not far from the towns of Solihull and Warwick, now run by the National Trust and dating back to the 16th Century, Packwood boasts a fine collection of furniture and tapestries, but its crown jewel is the wonderful Yew Garden, containing over 100 trees laid out to represent the Sermon on the Mount.

As well as the Yew Garden, Packwood also boasts a lovely sunken garden, extensive parkland and orchards that surround a small lake, giving you plenty of places to wander around, whilst giving you great views over the entrance to the house. The other side of the house (Where you enter) also treats you to places to explore and relaxing including the new build cafe as well as the walled kitchen gardens and a garden entrance, ideal for those of you that don’t want to walk too far.
