Overview
More
Step into what remains of a secret wartime air base, now our Visitor Centre, where thousands of people lived and worked in the 1940s. Walk through a masterpiece in landscape design, which is 'Capability' Brown's very first, which has been painstakingly restored for over 18 years from what was once a lost and overgrown 18th century parkland. Explore the park and lakeside to find out what conservation project we're working on this year. Find Croome Court, the home of the Earls of Coventry, at the heart of the park which has been patiently waiting for its revival. Its time has come this year as the faded house is repaired and reserviced to be able to open up all four floors in 2016. This year explore two floors of un-restored spaces, see what the builders are working on and climb the scaffold for a cup of tea on Sky Cafe.

Walking through the trees doesn't prepare you for the first view of Croome and its gardens. You get a fantastic view of the house from the elevated position and of the gardens. We visited on a clear and blustery day, which made the visit better,...More

We visited Croome Court during a weekend in the Worcester area. The site was the wartime home to RAF Defford and is there is a fascinating museum. Additional the RAF medical facilities are used as a “canteen”/restaurant. The museum is very well laid out, and...More

The house at Croome is unique of course but my favourite walk is down towards the orangery. When you walk through the leafy path from the car park, instead of walking past the church and towards the house, go right instead. It's a nice walk...More

The visit began well by a visit to the Tea room. Because the place has associations with the Air Force and a nearby historic airbase, the setting for the Tea Room is styled like wartime with outside seating to include a services style tent with...More

Just broke our journey to Devon here so didn't have much time to really appreciate what the property had to offer. After a pleasant lunch in the 1940's canteen we had a lovely walk around the gardens. Saw enough to make us realise we must...More

Very interesting background. Well staffed house. Large area of outdoor exploration/walks. The restaurant is ideal for fulfilling needs during a long day

Our first visit here as NT members and we were not disappointed. Amazing vistas and "natural" landscaped grounds created by Capability Brown, his first commission I think. The house itself is a relatively recent addition to NT's portfolio and much money has been spent on...More

We found the spaciousness and wide vistas calm and inviting. From the grounds you can look across to the Malvern Hills in the distance. If the distances around the grounds seem too great there's a little bus to transport you. The house is unlike many...More
