Description:

Step into what remains of a secret wartime air base, now our Visitor...

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.

It lives up to its tagline very well. The stunning backdrop of the Malverns give this Capability Brown jewel a jaw dropping quality. The surprise of the RAF history was enough but when one sees the buildings nestled in the valley against the panorama of the hills that almost define Worcestershire it is a spectacular sight. The church is a... More

This is a great day out for a very reasonable price. A triple whammy - Gardens, House and RAF Museum. The staff in the museum were so helpful, you could tell they enjoyed passing on their considerable knowledge. the staff around the park (especially the white bearded buggy driver) were so helpful. Make sure you turn left just past the... More

This totally surpassed our expectations!! What a fabulous place to visit; so much to see and lovely walks around the park. Shame we only had a couple of hours as you could spend all day here! Such a dog friendly park, but no dogs in the house; which is understandable. Great for children and adults - perfect for a family... More

We visited the house and RAF Museum only, the weather was a bit too cold to explore the parkland (though it looked as if it would be glorious in a day to match). The shorter of the routes from the entrance to the house was a chilly 15 minute walk. Actually, we hadn’t really researched the property before our visit,... More

Interesting place, well worth a visit. Quite varied in what it offers, kept our three young children entertained for a few hours. Visited on a very wet day but still had plenty to enjoy; - kids play area was very nice including an area designed for building dens etc. Which is a nice touch. - interesting museum about the former...

Two floors have been largely completed, there is a café and activity are in the basement and... More

Croome Court was aquired by the National Trust approx. 10 years ago. The house was originally owned by the Earls of Coventry but during the 20th century was a Catholic School, occupied by military, inhabited by Hare Krishna and more recently by property developers who ran it as a night club. Consequently the National Trust have a mammoth task in... More

We decided to pop into here as we were staying in the area and we ended up staying the day. All the staff we met during the day were very friendly and we had no problem getting the information that we needed. You get a useful map from reception which points out places of interest. The grounds were very well... More
