Overview
More
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.

We had a very interesting, if somewhat short, visit to Croome, beginning with a tasty lunch - great summer chicken and coconut curry followed by summer fruit crumble. The aircraft museum was crammed with fascinating war stories/memorabilia and a very pleasant and knowledgable gentleman in...More

A National Trust property. There’s more than meets the eye at Croome. A secret wartime airbase, now a visitor centre, was once a hub of activity for thousands of people. Outside is the grandest of English landscapes, ‘Capability’ Brown’s masterful first commission, with commanding views over...More

Set in lovely surroundings, and the house was very interesting, well worth having a chat with the people in the rooms to find out more about the place, I liked that they hadn't tried to fill the place from other houses. On the second floor...More

An interesting house to walk around, there is a cafe in the basement part and loos which was very useful after quite a walk across fields and paths to get there. The initial 1940s style restaurant near the car park was great and did a...More

We arrived rather late in the afternoon and only had time to visit the RAF museum which was interesting in itself. Would liked to have visited the big house but will have to come back another time. Nice tea in the cafe.

The grounds here are a lovely place to spend time on a summers day. 'Capability' Brown landscaped the area and it is worth a visit. The house itself is in a state flux as before the National Trust took ownership it was used by many...More

Great place to visit. Lovely walks, plenty of places to stop and have a picnic if the weather is good and you bring it with you. Alternatively some good eating/drinking places available to. Well worth a visit.
