Croome Court

You can see for miles & miles

This Palladian-style house in a setting of sweeping Capability Brown landscapes is a delight to visit and you have to see it all. Allow time for walking and discovering the ins and outs of this property with its views to the Malvern Hills. There’s a lake and gardens with temples, a grotto and follies dotted around the outer reaches of the parkland: Park Seat, the Panorama Tower, Pirton Castle and Dunstall Castle.

Croome Court and the parkland were designed by Capability Brown with details by Robert Adam and it’s all very pleasing to the eye. Just check out the proportions of the rooms in the Court and St Mary Magdalene Church in the grounds with Adam interiors.

It’s great place for a long walk followed by lunch or other refreshment in the 1940s canteen-style tea room, once part of RAF Defford and with its own RAF Visitor Centre. Inside Croome Court, the Tapestry Room Tea Room is the place for afternoon tea.
