Packwood House and Gardens
Packwood House’s Grade II listed gardens will delight and enchant visitors of all ages.
The famous Yew Garden must be one of the largest collections of yew trees in the world.
For many years families have enjoyed playing games of hide and seek behind these majestic trees, yet Packwood’s Gardens, dating back to 1650, also offer peace and tranquillity. In the Carolean Garden visitors can admire the stunning herbaceous borders and enjoy views across the gardens and parkland from the seventeenth century brick gazebos. One of the gazebos also offers information about planting in the gardens. Away from the formal gardens visitors can discover Packwood’s lake, which features a circular stroll through a wooded glade. For families there are new surprises to discover in the gardens; a series of playful installations by artist Hilary Jack.
There’s a little patchwork cottage in the woods, tiny houses in the Yew Garden whose windows you can peek through and a giant bed where visitors can lie and watch the clouds drift by. There is also a meticulously restored walled Kitchen Garden, planted with vegetables and fruit used in the on-site café, and flowers that are picked for use in the house.
