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. Dating back to the 16th Century, Packwood bosts a fine collection of furniture and tapestries, but it’s 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 surrond a small lake, giving you plenty of places to wader around, whilst giving you great views over the entrance to the house. The other side of the house (Where you enter from) also treats you to places to explore and relaxing incliding the new build cafe as well as the walled kitchen gardens and garden entrance, ideal for those of you that don’t want to walk to far.
