Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Snowdrops”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

We visited this NT property to see the snowdrop displays. They are beautiful. It was quite hard to find but worth it. There were amazing views from the house and gardens and you can walk around the extensive grounds and down by the lake.
Much of the house is open to the public and is interesting but not extensive.
There was no restaurant but there was food available from a 'van' parked in the grounds. It was very good - lovely bacon bap for £3.50.
No shop but a few items available where you pay to go in.
Plenty of parking and picnic tables - there were a lot of people with picnic - even at this time of year.
Worth a visit and we will go again

“A Gem”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

A fascinating property in a stunning location. It is worth coming just for the views. We explored the house then the gardens. You can walk for a long way in the extensive grounds. Simply a wonderful place.

“Stunning!”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

A real treat! not a pretentious NT venue, just pure pleasure to see how the house has developed from a tudor hunting lodge with later additions and finally a rescue by a wealthy American benefactor. we loved the house and the views are to die for......

“Beautiful Views”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Relatively difficult to find - ignore Sat Nav! However the views when you arrive are well worth the effort. Don't be content with picnic tables in the car park but walk a few hundred yards to the side of the house where you can share your food with peacocks and chickens whilst enjoying the magnificent views. The position explains why this fascinating extended hunting lodge was sited here in Henry VIII's day. Well marked walks from a few hundred yards to 3 - 4 miles provide a useful and interesting workout after a picnic lunch.

“Bijoux NT property”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

This small house (was a hunting lodge) is a wonderful place, steeped in history, has amazing views & the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. With less than a dozen rooms to visit the property can be viewed in an hour or so then any amount of time can be spent walking in the small gardens or the extensive grounds. Some games for children in the gardens but this house is best seen in half a day combining here with for instance Woodchester Park / Mansion
