Overview

More
Newark Park stands proud on top of the Cotswold escarpment, looking down into the Ozleworth valley to the Mendips beyond. This remote corner of south Gloucestershire is a secret and unspoilt place, with barely a sign of modern life visible in any direction. A place of architectural intrigue, quaint gardens and sprawling parkland there is much to see and do at Newark.Founded by an influential English courtier to Henry VIII in 1550; the house and estate since went from boom to bust, to its dramatic rescue by a Texan architect in the 20th century. Newark has an incredible story to tell.

Re-visited after five years, lovely day for a walk - we followed the purple route, which was a pleasant stroll on a bridlepath which was the old carriage route, and then through fields back to the lake and the house. The gardens were buzzing, with...More

Newark Park was until recently a home, loving restored by a former GI after WW11. It was originally a Tudor hunting lodge which had been extended over many years. It's different from most National Trust properties in that you can sit on the chairs and...More

We really enjoyed our trip here - not the all too common Palladian pile. The picnic area complete with café is very close to the car park so handy if your provisions are heavy! There is a supply of picnic rugs, sun hats and parasols...More

Plenty of car park space and then head for the small gate next to the NT check in hut. Colour coded walks give ample opportunity to explore the beautiful gardens around the house and the estate beyond. The house opens at 11am but by getting...More
